Super Science Seed Update!

This week our seeds have really enjoyed being in their little green houses with the warm sun shining upon them.

On Monday morning the seeds had already started to sprout, just days after we had sat them on their damp beds of cotton wool, and by Wednesday it was plain to see how our seeds were quickly changing.

The children were excited to see how much they had changed…
By Friday they had shot up even more. The shoots had got much, much bigger!

See you soon for another seed update…

Super Science! 🪴

For ‘British Science Week’ the children have been finding out about seeds and plants and what they need to help them grow. We have been using our senses to explore. The children have been doing their good looking and good talking to carefully look at plants and flowers and describe what they can see and the changes that have occurred, we have described what we can feel and also what we can smell!

We have put some seeds onto some damp cotton wool and have given the seeds their own mini greenhouse to help keep them warm and ensure they get plenty of light. We have used vegetable and flower seeds, the seeds looked very different, some were big and some were very small, some were round like little footballs, some were long and thin and they were different colours too. We had to be very careful with the tiny seeds and hold onto them tightly with our pinchy fingers! We are looking forward to seeing what happens to our different seeds…

Please come back soon so we can show you how our seeds have changed…

Brilliant Books!

Fundraising - World Book Day

The children all came to school dressed as their favourite book characters. Nursery was filled with all sorts of animals, princesses, superheroes, children from our favourite traditional tales as well as those from newer stories that have become very popular with the children. They all looked brilliant and their friends enjoyed guessing who they were! I wonder if you can guess too…

The children enjoyed lots of wonderful activities inspired by some of our favourite traditional tales. They retold stories using puppets and props…

The children took on different roles and retold the story of the Gingerbread Man…

The children also helped build houses for the ’Three Little Pigs’, they thought carefully about their construction and made sure they built a wolf proof house to keep the pigs safe as he huffed and puffed and blew down the house of straw and the house of sticks! They remembered to add a chimney to their house, so they could trick the wolf into their hot cooking pot!

The children used their imagination to create their own characters, making some fantastic hand puppets that they will be able to use to tell their own stories…

We talked to our friends about our favourite stories and characters. We sang songs based on stories and of course we enjoyed listening to stories too! We do love stories and we are great at joining in to help tell the stories through the repetitive refrains.

Happy Book Day! Happy reading Nursery!
