This week, the children went on a trip to the local post office There, they bought stamps and posted their own Christmas cards to their homes. Their families will be surprised when the post arrives.
This week, the children in the nursery have been conducting a science investigation. Over three days, the children tested cola, soapy water and tomato sauce, in order to find out which was best for cleaning dirty coins. We compared the results and the tomato sauce was the best.
After reading the story of The Gingerbread Man, the children used small world characters to retell the main events of the story. Some even created their own happier ending, where The Gingerbread Man escaped. Have a look.
On Friday, the fire brigade came to our nursery for a visit. The children were very interested to hear all about the role of the fire fighter and loved having a chance inside the fire engine. The best part was when we all got a chance to use the hose.
Last week we had great fun at the fancy dress party. We danced, played games, had a special snack, as well as dooking for apples. The costumes were fantastic! Have a look.
The children in the nursery are beginning to notice the changes that the season of Autumn brings, especially in the nursery garden. The autumn winds have blown in litter and lots of leaves have fell from the trees, making our garden a mess. Thankfully, the children were on hand to tidy it up.
This week is our Come Play Week. This gives the children the opportunity to show their families around our nursery and have fun playing together. Thank you to all the parents and family members who have attended. If you haven’t managed along yet, there is still time on Wednesday and Thursday, from 10.30 in the morning and from 2.00 in the afternoon.
This week, the children have been busy gathering information using checklists. The aim was to find out about the different colours of hair and eyes in the nursery. We then made a chart to display our findings.
