Do you know what World Oceans Day is all about?
Please have a look at our blog post and we will help you learn…….
Please come into nursery and have a look in our floor book and also see our Under the Sea Sway for more learning stories.
If you can think of some PLODs (possible lines of development / next steps) please share your ideas in the comments below or write them on our learning wall in the foyer.
Thank you to all our enthusiastic Grandparents who came along yesterday and got stuck right in to all the activities and joined in at song time! Great fun was had by all!
We are really pleased to hear how many grandparents follow our learning and keep up to date with nursery news by visiting our Blog and follow our Twitter page.
Please have a look at our videos to find out what we got up to yesterday…………
In an earlier post we mentioned children’s learning is recorded and extended through Learning Stories.
Learning Stories are a consultative model of planning, led by the children.
Learning Stories at BEYC are very much influenced by the Reggio Emilia approach; making learning visible and highly valuing the child’s voice and contributions from home.
Our Learning Stories are collated onto Sway (Microsoft Office Sway is an online interactive presentation programme) which is great for revisiting Learning Stories, both in nursery and at home.
Please have a look at the key points about BEYC’s Learning Stories below.
This short video is also very helpful for understanding this approach to documenting learning and planning.
Please help yourself to the materials at the Try at Home table in the foyer to make an eco friendly Easter bonnet.
As an Eco School we very much promote the use of recycled materials and have provided some as a starting point.
You can use recycled resources from your home too if you wish!
Who is going to be super creative and take on this challenge?
We can’t wait to see your finished eco friendly Easter bonnets!
Please wear them to nursery on Thursday 22nd March, when we will be having our Easter Egg hunt!
Can you help us extend our learning all about Space?
Please add your ideas to our whiteboard idea thought bubbles in the foyer or in the comments below.
Our Out of this World Sway shows the direction children have taken their learning in so far, through the Learning Story model of Consultative Planning.
Here are some video clips we have been using to help support children’s understanding of Fair Trade at nursery. Our Fair Trade raffle will hopefully raise enough money to take part in the Toilet Twinning project Flush Away Poverty. Our Fair Trade Raffle will take place on Wednesday 7th March where you can buy tickets for £1 and have a chance to win a beautiful Fair Trade hamper.
