Term 3 started off very different this year with some children learning from home and some at nursery within the hubs. Then we were all reunited in February back at nursery and it was non stop fun until the holidays! Here are a few highlights from term 3.
We had great fun playing outside last term in all sorts of weather. We went on some lovely walks down to the shore to see the swans and other wildlife and walked all the way to the crofthouse! We visited the pond lots to see the frogs and frogspawn. We spoke about the life cycle of a frog and other animals as Spring was approaching and we thought about how to stay safe around the pond.
Water play was very popular this term, we made puddles to splash in, painted the sheds, had water fights, made potions with paint and made rivers with the pipes. We used little boats to have races with.
Trips to the forest have been great fun playing hide and seek and climbing trees! The children have also made houses and cafes which was perfect to hide under when it was raining! We brought out our gardening equipment and de-weeded our planters so we were ready for planting after the holidays.
Inside we really loved having the soft play, the craft table was always very busy and the sand and rice activities were very popular using the scales and measuring jugs. The children loved packing suitcases so we had a little Airport in nursery, there were holidays to Disneyland and South Africa! We used the check in tags and stickers we were kindly donated from Sumburgh Airport. The kids also put on a super frozen performance for the teachers to enjoy and on the last day of term we treated ourselves to a pajama and movie day!
