When we met Winston the Polar bear

Today we had a very special visitor called Winston the polar bear who came to talk about climate change.

We made a mind map about what the children already know about climate change and what is happening to our planet 🌎


We discussed the ways that we help our planet at nursery.

“We put our fruit in the little bin”

” The white bag for the paper”

We then read the story about Winston and all his polar bear friends and what is happening to the ice where the polar bears live.

“The ice is melting”

“because it’s too hot”

We will continue to meet up with Winston and learn some more about our planet and what we can do to help at home and at nursery.

Snow and Ice

As the toddlers arrived today they let their friends know that it had snowed again. The toddlers were excited to make their own snow. We measured out some cornflour and conditioner and mixed it together. The toddlers then found some animals that live in the snow and ice , penguins and seals. The toddlers made icebergs for the animals to rest on when they were not in the water and snow. The toddlers discovered that they could see the penguins footprints in the snow and some seals hid under the water.
