Welcome to Nursery!
Claire Blewett (Teacher), Gail Stringer (HLTA) & Cassie Holmes (TA).
What a great start to the Nursery year we have had…. The sunny dry weather continued for many of our first few weeks, and we have been able to get outdoors every day and harvest the produce planted before the summer holidays - we have had lettuce, runner beans and leeks.
Here is the head of a sunflower which had finished flowering; we extracted the seeds from it ready for planting next year. We made patterns and counted with them, and observed them through magnifying glasses.
At the Mud Kitchen the children have had chance to mix lettuce leaves and herbs to make ‘salads,’ and to ‘cook’ runner beans. This has been great for developing their shoulder, elbow and wrist strength – all movements needed to help them develop as writers when they are ready.
The Water provision both indoors and out has been popular so far, we have been filling and emptying a range of containers, put colour in the water and sometimes got over enthusiastic and made waves which have spilt over onto the floor!!
The Beebots have been introduced to the children and these have been very much enjoyed. We have been trying to send them along a route through the woods to The Three Bears House, estimating how many times we need to press the buttons to travel specific sections of the route. Great fun!
We are looking forward to exploring further next half term.
