The children were very interested in these stick insect eggs today. They helped prepare the box and carefully placed the eggs inside before adding some leaves for them to eat once they hatch out.
Hopefully we will have some baby stick insects next week.
The children in room 2 have been making bird feeders this week. After they had set, they took them outside to hang on the trees in the playground so that the birds have got plenty to eat in this cold weather.
Great job everyone.
Fun was had by all yesterday when we used balloons to help us develop our hand eye co-ordination. The children did really well, using different parts of their bodies to keep the balloons up in the air. Well done everyone!
Happy 2019 to everyone and it was great to see all the happy faces back at nursery last week ( children and parents!)
With a new year come new challenges and last week some of the children were trying to master hula hooping and manoeuvring the bikes in and out of some cones. They made a good start and with practise, enthusiasm and patience we will watch the progress over the next few weeks.
Today was Christmas Party day and the children were also very excited about our surprise visitor.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year when it comes along from everyone at Stanwell Nursery.
Today, the children performed a simple Nativity for their parents. They have been learning about the Christmas Story through song and put on a real show this morning. Well done to everyone.
We had a very successful Jar and Bake Sale this week and a big thank you to all parents and staff who made some fabulous decorated jars and goodies for us to sell to raise money for nursery funds.
