We have been learning about presenting artwork for an audience and to view others’ work. We are also learning to explore nature in different environments. We used some natural materials we found outdoors to create transient art pictures for others to enjoy.
“I used compost, daisies and weeds to make my garden. I used a buttercup for the sun because it is yellow.”- Bodhi.
“There’s a spider in my garden, but you can’t really see it.” -Taylor.
A huge thank you to Mrs Roche and Ms Thomson from East Renfrewshire Council who came along to give us a talk all about recycling. We learned about the importance of sorting plastic, paper, tins and glass into the correct recycling bin.
Today Vera’s dad came to tell us all about his job as an architect. He showed us some of his plans and drawings and read us the story of Iggy Peck Architect. He also reminded us that we must always wear our hi-vis vests and hard hats on the building site!
The Eco Committee went on a Spring Clean today around the outside of the nursery. They collected: 3 bags of litter, 1 very long drainpipe, 1 old bicycle wheel, a VERY long piece of wire and a piece of plastic bigger than Leo!
We have been learning about Fairtrade goods and what it means to be fairtrade. We use fairtrade goods whenever possible such as for our Coffee and Chats and for some of the snack foods available to the children. We use Fairtrade tea leaves on on the light board for sensory exploration. The children can recognise the logo and are producing a display of Fairtrade goods.
From Wednesday 18th-Friday 20th February we have a broad selection of Fairtrade goods available in the nursery for purchase. The Fairtrade stall is manned by staff, parents and children. Thank you to everyone who is supporting this venture.
