This half term we have been learning about ‘New Life’. We had baby chicks in Nursery and the children enjoyed looking after them. They fed them, held them and also helped clean out their house. Children remembered to be very gentle and had a go at some observational drawings. We also went on a visit to St. Leonards Farm in Esholt and had an amazing time with Farmer James. Staff, parents and children enjoyed time in the fun barn, looking around the farm, holding the animals and also having a tractor trailer ride.
In Nursery the children have enjoyed playing in the spring cleaning area and also in the baby role play area. We had a visit from Jason’s baby sister and Haris’s baby sister and the children really enjoyed this. The children have been bathing baby dolls in the water area and have been singing lots of nursery rhymes to their baby dolls.
Next half term we will be learning about our local area. We have a trip to the café, library and also the park. In addition, we will have a graduation ceremony for the children moving to Reception and also have a sports day planned. We will be taking part in the annual Summer Fayre and look forward to raising money for our Nursery. Children will also be learning about mini-beasts and our core story this half term is ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. We will be looking after some caterpillars and watching them grow into beautiful butterflies. When they are fully grown we will realise them into the wild. We will be building a bug hotel in the nursery garden and will be looking for different mini beasts.
