Just look at those beaming smiles! Nursery would like to say a big THANK-YOU to anyone who donated a scooter this week. They are very popular and the old ones had reached the end of their working lives.
We asked in the newsletter for any donation and you responded generously. Michelle and Jo particularly love the one that has a horn built into the handle bars!!!! If you have any more scooters (or balance bikes) to donate, please bring them to either the Nursery entrance or the main gate.
The children love gathering worms at nursery. Often finding worms is like finding treasure and the children know they were they can find them in the nursery garden. Our activity of building a wormery was relatively straightforward, and resulted in a lovely home for some of our garden earthworms. We added sand and soil and then some organic material. We put six worms in and we will spend the week observing them before we release them back into the garden.
Children were really excited to discover that we have tadpoles at nursery. They have only just hatched out of their frogspawn and we are looking closely at them and hoping that they will grow big and strong soon. From looking at the information books we found that the tadpoles were between one week and two weeks old.
The children have really built up their confidence launching off the crate stack and landing safely. We started by using two crates and when everyone felt ready we added another crate. The children soon realised that they needed to leap outwards and upwards, some of them almost took off.
Today, our Art Lead, Ms. Scholl, has written to all parents with details of the school’s participation in this year’s Royal Academy Young Artists’ Show.
All children will be creating artwork with their classes. However, you can also submit any creations made at home, via the school. |
To do so, you will need to complete a permission form and photos of the artwork. The Royal Academy have created a handy ‘how to’ guide for photographing your child’s artwork. This, and the permission form, are available to download below.
Having planted our tomato seeds on Monday, and made observational drawings yesterday, today we have been finding out all about tomatoes, looking at them closely, comparing them and finally tasting them. We’re learning new vocabulary such as stalk, vine, seeds, flesh and skin. We’ve got plum tomatoes, cherry tomatoes and large vine tomatoes 🍅. I wonder which will be the most popular?
Our Topic is evolution. Charles Darwin (a lá head honcho) is our main man, the guy who discovered it. At first, people thought he was ri-diculous. In truth, he was frightening them with the novelty of his discoveries. But in fact, he was completely correct! Unfortunately, this was the time when everyone believed the bible,and no-one was open to his ideas.
We have studied fossils to give us an idea of what came before the animals we see today.
We are looking closely at tomatoes and talking about what we can see. The children are finding out how tomatoes grow following on from our planting activity yesterday. They are exploring the vocabulary relating to vegetables and fruit and
