Nursery Learning

Welcome back to all our families. We hope you have all had a lovely Easter break and fully refreshed ready for an exciting term ahead.

We have started this week with an exciting Easter egg hunt in the garden with all the staff and children. Some of the children have been very excited to be back at nursery and have been making the most of the nursery areas. The weather has been fantastic this week and children have spent the majority of their time outdoors. As many of you will have noticed we have been working really hard with the children to develop their garden. It is hoped we will create an outdoor classroom where they go to learn about the plants they grow, plant seeds and nurture the plants and fingers crossed we will have some delicious harvest in time for Christmas. We are still at the early stages if you can offer any help or knowledge we would value it as we are novice gardeners ourselves! We have already noticed an increase in wildlife visiting our garden and have had bumble bees, birds,woodlice and spiders so far. Although the children have not been to the Forest Schools site this week there has been masses  of outdoor learning taking place within the garden.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have now planted the Trees that we received from the Woodland Trust and also some lovely plants that were kindly donated . Thank you so much. However we still have a long way to go. We have had a few comments from parents about how much they appreciate this garden for the children as they dont have access to gardens at home and this is fantastic and makes us even more determined to make a great learning space for the children.

 

 

Other learning in nursery has been lots of loose parts building. We have now put the smaller loose parts and larger block play together and wow! the children have been very busy creating.

There has been lots of mark making going on and a few of the girls have been doing lots of writing of letters to each other. The boys have been creating some amazing drawings of dragons and monsters! All great for developing those early writing skills.
