Reading Rainbow Gifts

This week, the preschool children and their parents were invited along to listen to a story and do some arts and crafts. The children were introduced to the book ‘The Tobermory Cat’ and made cat masks and puppets with staff from Community Learning.

The children all received a Reading Rainbow bag containing lovely story books to be enjoyed at home and we will follow this up with a trip to the local library next Tuesday.

New Science Project

The chicks may have gone but the children at Stanwell have a new science interest….

We have been watching as our caterpillars get bigger and bigger and are now starting to spin cocoons around themselves. The children helped to pin the cocoons into the butterfly net and are observing closely to see who can spot the first butterfly!

We have also been reading about the Hungry Caterpillar and made our own caterpillars at snack time too!

Eco Week at Stanwell

This week is Eco Week in nursery and today the children were discussing which everyday items can/cannot be recycled. We sorted the rubbish and then took the recyclable things out to the recycle bin. We even took the food waste outside to put in the compost bin. The children have been learning about how recycling can help ” save the planet” through reading stories and are going to be doing a litter pick around the garden.
