Den Day

We have been learning about children’s rights to shelter and we have been creating dens. We are taking part in Save the Children’s Den Day on Friday 17th June. Parents are invited to join us to help create dens. Parents should come along between 9.30-10.30am and 1.30- 2.30pm. There will be collection tins if you wish to make a donation to Save the Children.

The Great Coconut Challenge


The children are learning about where food comes from and trying unusual foods. We decided to buy a coconut to try in nursery but we did not know how to open it.

“Coconuts come from palm trees. Monkeys eat them, they smash them on the rocks.” Lucas and Isaac McG.


“Smash it with a hammer.” Sai.

“This won’t break with a hammer. It is too hard. I think I like coconut but only a little bit.” Bodhi.

“Crack it with a rock.” Lucas and Holly.

“Cut it with a knife.” Isaac McK.

“Something metal to bash it.” Joel.


“It is hard to break open.” Ben.


“Look, I just cracked it off the ground.” Holly.


“That was a good idea, smashing off the wall.” Leo.


“I like it when the milk comes out. It looks like water. ” Bodhi.


“Milk comes form cows and it’s different milk.” Louie.



Building blocks

Our young builders have been making plans and working with others as they build using the large and small blocks.









Block play provides children with opportunities to develop socially as they communicate and interact with others and to develop their imaginations through exploration. They faciliate the development of mathematical skills and motor skills as they lift, stack and balance.
