Busy bees….

It’s great to be busy, work together, problem solve and let friendships develop, all at play.

we have enjoyed making pizza for snack, lots of building and measuring and being creative.  The bairns really enjoyed themselves and transferred they play outside, using larger loose parts to build than the marble run and making pizza and soup in the mud kitchen.

Mrs Colvin “Oooh this tastes like delicious chicken soup.”  “No Mrs Colvin, it’s MUD soup!” 😂

The bairns made a games hiding balls in pipes and wondered how to get them out, how many would come out, which end would they come out and so on.  Lots of great counting, estimating and problem solving as well as great co-operation working together.

There’s a bit of a Frozen frenzy happening in Nursery too with the upcoming new Frozen 2!  Our bairns are turning their den into a Frozen palace, enjoying the princess dresses and songs.

our creative area has been popular making Frozen props and decorations with a focus on using squares as our shape of the week.

 

Our Learning in Term 1

Hello everyone, apologies for our lack of posts for a while, there was a blip with our blog, but hopefully it’s all sorted now.

Here is a snapshot of our learning fun last term!……

…..Da bairns were really interested in exploring different materials,  their properties and uses.  They experimented to see if the material waterproof, strong, heavy, light, could float or sink.

  

……Then they explored their uses.  Could they build with it, could it stack, could it hold it’s shape…….

…..They took their learning outside to explore further where they experimented with forces and how things move…..

….Some bairns were very interested in magnetic forces, push and pull and others really enjoyed exploring mark making in the sand using different tools and materials.

….Magnus explored forces of push and pull using his body and feet – he even made his own ski’s!

We had lots of fun outside as always………

…building, climbing…

…..Jumping, sunbathing….

 

 

 

…..flying kites, experimenting with sound, pony jumps and building….

….Bikes and scooters pedalling with a passenger and negotiating corners with an extra wide bike!

…..Pony cuddles, walks to the shore,

 

 

 

 

 

…..and of course jumping in muddy puddles!

 

 

 

 

 

 

….And finally…..

…..baking, tea parties, painting with pineapples and pineapple play doh…..

 

 

….cosy stories, colour sorting and lemon tasing…..

…….music making, instrument skills, rhythm….

 

 

 

 

 

We were kindly donated an amazing castle!  The bairns carefully followed the instructions to build the castle themselves and some went on to make their own castles using all their knowledge of building and material properties they had already learned in their experiments….
