At the end of last term, everyone thoroughly enjoyed our topic of Easter. We spoke about the Easter story, different signs of spring like flowers and baby animals and made lots of lovely easter crafts. We went on a sensory walk and could hear the birds and wondered what they might be up too at this time of year. The children thought that they might be building nests for their chicks. We did some research online about different birds and their nests and also the different sounds that they made. A favourite was the eagle call! The children decided they wanted to have their own nest in nursery so they could be birds and chicks too. So we walked up to Mrs Smith’s house as she had lots of big branches and sticks and the children picked the ones that they thought would be good for their nest and helped carry them back to nursery. They helped place to big sticks around the outside so it made the nest strong and sturdy and the smaller ones on the inside, sometimes doing some weaving as they went along. When it was finished we made chick hats and enjoyed playing in the little nest we made! To round off our Easter topic we had an Easter egg hunt! There was clues all around nursery then we had to follow which lead us to the forest where everyone found and Easter egg to take home!
