Today, in nursery, we were discussing Harvest Time. We learned about picking all the fruits and vegetables that have grown and about harvesting the corn and wheat growing in the fields. We even made our own bread and enjoyed trying it at snack time.
Today, in the nursery playground, we used our new magnetic boards to make a story board of The Three Little Pigs story. The children were very good at sequencing the parts of the story and remembering what the characters said.
Some of the children went on a visit to the local pet shop today to find out about what we needed to do to get ready for keeping a gold fish in nursery. We looked at many different kinds of fish and a very helpful lady told us how to get our tank and water just right before we get the fish.
Some of the children went off to the Croft yesterday to pick the last of the potatoes. They loved measuring the giant sunflowers and even saw a bee hive with bees coming in and out with pollen to make honey. They thought the bees were very noisy!!
We were making the most of the summer sun today and decided to go to Leith Links so that we could practise what we know about road safety. Well done everyone for looking, listening and using the green man correctly.
We have new stick insects in nursery this term and they are a lot bigger! They are “Spiny Sabah” species and although they are a lot larger, the children have been keen to explore. They have been learning about how to care for them and to handle them gently.
The children have loved playing on the new nursery trikes today. They have a special step at the back so that the children can give someone a lift around the playground!
