Welcome back to Fantastic Friday where we showcase the excellent work and play done in the nursery each week. This week in the nursery we are continuing to explore spring. The children have been busy looking at life cycles of flowers, frogs, ducks and butterflies. We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our caterpillars! We have been reading some lovely spring time story books and discussing the the seasonal change, how these changes affect us and the world around us.
We have been caring for our garden by doing more planting, watering the plants and making new decorations to hang on the fence. The children and staff have spent a lot of time cleaning and tidying up both our garden areas, we hope that you all will be able to come see all our hard work very soon! We have been discussing and investigating insects and other mini beasts; reading stories, matching and identifying different creatures and creating our own pictures of them.
The children had some trips to our local park, unfortunately some of the park had been vandalised and the children were restricted on what equipment they could play on. This lead the children to discuss why we should all look after our local community. However the children still enjoyed their time there doing bear hunts and on the walk to and from the park; looking at the flowers and the trees and discussing how to cross the road safely.
We hope you enjoy your weekend and we look forward to seeing you on Monday! Please continue to post your lovely photos of all the fun you have had at home on the Learning Journals.
