Nursery, P1 and P1/2 Easter Fun

Yesterday the children from the nursery joined with P1 and P1/2 to do some Easter activities.  Pre-schoolers from Birchvale Nursery joined us as well since this was a great opportunity to begin preparation for going to school.  We all had a great time.  It was lovely to see the different age groups working together and we hope that this is the start of more regular events like this.


Nursery Visit the Day Centre

The afternoon children had a lovely time making new friends at the Day Centre today.  This was our second visit and we plan to make these trips regularly from now on as they are so worthwhile.

We took along some activities we do in nursery and shared them with the ladies and gentlemen who were there.  We all had lots of fun and it was great to see the two very different generations interacting!

Healthy Eating

We have been learning where some foods come from and which foods we should eat lots of to stay healthy.

“You should eat a lot of vegetables…but I love cake!”  – Alivia

“Potatoes come from a potato plant.  You need to dig them up.  They are healthy.” – Amelie B

“Your teeth will fall out if you eat a lot of sweeties.” – Mollie

“Eggs are good.  They come from chickens.  You can eat chickens too! – Casey

“We can eat lots of oranges…just little ones!” – Dominic

Our Bodies

We have been learning about our bodies in nursery over the last few weeks.  We all knew lots about the parts of the body we could see and could name many of these parts.  Our questions,and what we really wanted to find out more about, were all related to what happened inside our body, so that has been our focus.  We borrowed a skeleton from the primary and then asked the Science Department if they had something which showed our insides.  The secondary teachers were worried the model was a bit gruesome for us – but we have found it fascinating and have remembered so much of what we have been talking about.  We have looked at the skeleton, the internal organs, muscles and blood and completed various activities in relation to these.
