Outdoor fun

Today the children decided to explore weight. They gathered resources and used them to create scales on which they could balance and compare their body weight. The children used lots of mathematical language to describe their findings. Matthew found that he was heavier than a ball and that if he stood in the middle the wood stayed balanced.

Other children decided to add some shampoo to the large outdoor sink. Splashing and watching the water and bubbles flow was great fun. Dominic commented; “this is so much fun”

I wonder?

The children have been carrying out some experiments. Yesterday they tried mixing mento’s with coke to make a volcano…it didn’t work!

Next they decided to light the fire pit and toast some marshmallows. Sticky but yummy!

Then the decided to create their own Volcano. Bhavin and the other children are going to try bicarbonate of soda and vinegar tomorrow. I wonder what will happen.

 

Tie Ceremonies 2018

We thank all of our children, parents and family for the wonderful celebration they created in our centre today.  It was a happy day for our children going off to school in August and they were so confident and sang so beautifully it was all very emotional.

Rhonda recently completed a photography course and she is developing a very good eye as you will see from these lovely family shots.

 

Caterpillar

Our lovely new nursery guests arrived today.

The children were happy to meet the caterpillars that will be with us until they retreat to their chrysalis and change into something beautiful. I wonder what that can be.

Some children were able to tell staff but we shall see if they are correct.

The boys and girls liked their little wriggly bodies and watched as they crawled up the sides of the container.  They then collected paper and pens to draw a picture of our new friends.

 

Spring Planting

Today the children worked hard in the Family Centre Garden. They helped to plant shrubs and tulips.

The children put on rubber gloves and helped to break up the soil. They talked about how the soil was really soft and it had a smell, like potatoes.

Once the shrubs were planted the children said that it looked like a fairy garden. Next week the children are going to help plant some herbs. Kaile said they smell nice.
