This week the afternoon  children walked over to the church.  On the way they noticed the crocus growing outside the school gates and listened to the water running down the burn at the side of the school. Next they had to cross the bridge over the road to reach the path to take them through the houses to the church.

While at the church the children took part in stringing beads onto a thread to create their own pattern.

This week in the nursery the children have been learning to use positional language – on, under, behind, in front to place items and drive remote control cars forwards, backwards, to the side etc.

The children have also had the opportunity to choose the next area of interest that they would like to learn about – Under the Sea.  They looked at a variety of books before making their choice. The children then added a sticker to the chart indicating their choice and the topic with the most votes was chosen.

As we are now into the spring season the children have  observed the frogs in the school pond. Over the next few days and weeks we will return to see how the pond life has altered.
