Lobster

The Willow Room have been learning about creatures who live under the sea and today Miss Davidson brought in a live lobster for us to see.

After we had investigated her and asked lots of questions to find out more, some of the children painted pictures of what they could see.

Rosalie’s mum came to nursery this afternoon and told us lots of interesting facts about lobsters. Did you know they can be right or left clawed just like we can be right or left handed?

Some of us were brave enough to touch the lobster

Den Day

P6171745

We raised £61.37 for Save the Children when we took part in Den day. Parents joined us and we built dens, created models of shelters, designed logos and cooked bread on an open fire, all to raise awareness of the plight of many children living without the right to shelter.

Some feedback from parents.

“Den building day was a fantastic opportunity for parental involvement. It was very well organised and it was lovely to see the children enjoying the outdoors and actively participating.”

“A great afternoon spent outside with the children. I enjoyed spending time at the fire and helping to build dens.”

“Great opportunity to have parent participation. Good unstructured play where they really are getting an opportunity to use imagination and freedom of play.”

“Den day was a fantastic way to raise awareness of a very worthy charity and teach the children important skills in a fun way. So pleased to have been able to join in. Very well organised.”

 

Spring is Here!

The children have been pleased to be able to explore the nursery grounds in the sunshine this week and have noticed the creepy crawlies are enjoying the warmer weather too!

They are wondering whether any of them have been staying in our bug hotel.

 

 

 

All the best places to stay have a good name. Some suggestions for our bug hotel are:

Bug Fun Place  –  The Bug Play Area  –  Creepy Crawly Cave  –  Bug Flag Hotel  –  The Bug Station  –  Minibeast Mansion
