On Wednesday all the children took part in sports day, those who stay all day even took part twice! The children did a short replay race, a beanbag relay, a race balancing a quoit on their head and finally a full lap around the track. Then it was the parents turn who took part in the bean bag relay. A big thank you to all the parents who came and a huge well done to all the children. We have some very fast runners even at this young age, very promising for the future!
Today we had a Very Hungry Caterpillar story cafe in Nursery. Mums, Dads and Grandmas came to Nursery and listened to the story with their children then took part in lots of hungry caterpillar activities together. We painted butterflies, made caterpillars out of tissue paper, play dough or duplo, played bingo and tasted the different fruits from the story. Everyone had lots of fun. A big thank you to everyone who came along!
We were very surprised when we arrived at school yesterday to find that we had not one but three chicks hatched. They have surprised us by making an early appearance! The children were very excited to sit around the run and watch the chicks eating their food and keeping warm under the heat lamp. We can’t wait for the rest to hatch now!
We have a tank of tadpoles in Nursery. The children are enjoying watching them very closely, using the magnifying glasses to take an even closer look. They have been talking about what the tadpoles eat and what will happen to the tadpoles as they grow bigger. Some children have helped Miss Draper to go and collect fresh pond water from the school pond to keep the tank nice and clean for the tadpoles.
As part of their growing topic the children in Nursery have enjoyed playing in our new role play baby clinic. They have been bathing the babies and getting them dressed and talking about how we look after babies. The children have also brought photos of themselves when they were babies into Nursery to look at.
As well as going on the bus this week the Nursery children have been enjoying lots of Easter activities. They have made some chocolate crispy nests using melted chocolate and cornflakes. The children have also coloured and cut out Easter eggs and played with our sensory tray of rice with eggs and chicks.
We hope that you all have a lovely Easter holiday!
