Technology

The children have been using their problem solving skills to design and work together to create some architecture buildings. We have also been using our imagination with the blocks to create characters from our favourite movies. Some children have been exploring schematic play , through using the blocks to enclose items they have gathered in the Family Centre.

Architects, builders beware – check out what the Cartmill children have been up to……………..they even tidy up after themselves 😁😁😁

Cartmill children have created a fantastic bridge!

Well done for using the tools  safely

Boys working together, good job

A new stormtrooper house

The boys understand the routine of the nursery and tidied up when they had finished.

 

National Gardening Week

It’s time to plant more peas.
I can pick some parsley.

What a busy time in the garden, the sun was shining and our plants needed tending. The peas and carrots that were planted last month are beginning to grow out of the ground. Little shoots are appearing everywhere and the apple tree has begun to blossom. It is so nice to see the garden waken up after winter but now the hard work begins, watering, weeding and waiting… whatever will grow up next. Our gardeners are hoping for potatoes and onions.

The rhubarb needs a drink.
How many apples will we get?
We need more mud.

Pancake Tuesday – Yummy!!

Today the toddlers had great fun making pancakes. They took turns to measure the correct ingredients and loved stirring the mixture. The children watched for the pancakes to bubble on the cooker and outside on the fire in the big garden. We sang ‘Pop a Little Pancake’ and flipped the pancakes over!! Everyone enjoyed eating the pancakes at snack with some lovely fruit on them! Mmmmmmmmmm!!

 

Building bridges for the Gingerbread Man

This week for World Book Week we have been learning about “The Gingerbread Man” story. We have included recycled resources in the block area to explore ways to build a bridge for the gingerbread man to cross over the water.

“I can make a tall bridge”

“My gingerbread man is jumping up and down”

“My gingerbread man fell in the water”

“Lets make a really big bridge”
