We have been waiting for the arrival of a new Smartboard and last week it arrived and was installed for the children to try out. It is a very worthwhile teaching tool and the children will be able to learn new skills as well as having fun using it.
Who needs a slide when you have a cardboard box to slide down!
We were lucky enough to take delivery of some new outdoor equipment today for the sand kitchen but the children had just as much fun with the cardboard boxes!!!
The children have been observing and exploring what happens to water once it is frozen and then how it melts when it is exposed to heat by playing with ice cubes in the nursery.
The children do lots of drawings each week and staff are always on hand to scribe what the children tell us about the story behind the drawing. We have started to keep these in our Nursery Storybook and like to share these with the class, who love hearing them.
Today, the children were using the iPads and laptops to see how they can be used to find information. They all found out some new facts about Chinese New Year and various other topics.
The children were learning about Chinese New Year today and how each year is named after an animal. We had a story called Chopsticks and used gold paint to try some Chinese writing.
