Now that the snow has gone, we can finally look forward to Spring! The children have been watching as the buds in the nursery playground turn to flowers and learning how the sun shine helps them to grow. Let’s hope more good weather follows for the blossom to come out too!
The children enjoyed a visit from the Child Smile team today and loved being shown how to brush our teeth properly by the Big Crocodile Puppet!
Now we just need to remember everything we learned when we brush in nursery and at home.
We thought it was nearly Spring, but the winter weather came back today and the children had an unexpected chance for some fun in the snow.
Last week, one of the children made a “volcano” from the bricks and so to carry on the theme we made a plaster volcano in nursery today. After it was painted, it was filled with some secret ingredients so that it erupted with pretend lava. The children were fascinated and used lots of language to describe what they saw.
Today the children had a wonderful time experimenting with wood, bricks, sand, writing materials, crates etc as they had to use their imagination to invent play situations. There were no bikes, trikes or climbing frames as a trial run today and it just goes to show that the children create their own fun and learning opportunities.
Great job everyone.
A new year is upon us and it was lovely to see all the children back in nursery yesterday. They were all excited to see the ‘young engineer’ construction set and these boys had a great time creating models with hammers, screws and bolts. Can’t wait to see what they build next!
There have been sightings of some little elves around the nursery this week….
