Ice Age

The children were so ex-ice-ted to explore our garden today as Jack Frost had been to visit! The children noticed that Jack Frost had blown all over the garden and everything was covered in a “fluffy” layer of “crunchy” white ice. One of the children noticed that some of our flowers, leaves and conkers were “trapped” in a thick layer of ice. Another child mentioned that they had watched “Ice Age” at the weekend and the conker looked just like the acorn from the film. The children suggested we make our own Ice Age World for our dinosaurs. We had lots of fun making an icy dinosaur world and the children chatted about how much fun our dinosaurs would have playing in the ice.

It’s frozen like Ice Age”
“It’s an Ice Age dinosaur world”.

“It’s trapped in the ice. It’s so smooth”.

Pumpkin Feast

After all our Halloween celebrations last week we had lots of pumpkins left over! But what could we do with them?

The children had the wonderful idea that we could feed our feathered friends and other local wildlife with all the pumpkin mush inside.

First of all Helen cut the tops off our pumpkins then Fiona helped us set to work scraping out all the yummy pumpkin!

We had such great fun scraping the pumpkins out and we are so happy our wildlife friends are going to have very full tummys!

Stay and Play Week November 2019

Autumn Leaves

During the October break some of the children went for an autumnal walk to collect brown, orange, red and green coloured leaves and twigs. Inspired by their wonderful walks the children in the toddler room chose to create their own leaf men using the leaves and twigs they had collected. Then using their favourite leaf, they created their masterpeices developing their fine motor skills, coordination and creativity.

 

We are responsible citizens.

Today we took a glorious stroll to our local shops. As effective contributors to our nursery life we created a shopping list and went shopping for our snack.

The children took responsibility for one item each from our list and ensured that we found everything on our list to take back to nursery.

Before walking back the children decided they wanted to go into the pet shop, the children enjoyed looking at the animals and asked questions to expand on their learning.
