Welcome to Nursery Sho Lo and Goggles!

We have had two new fishy additions to nursery this week. Meet Sho Lo (Orange) and Goggles (black). As part of our topic ‘Splish, Splash, Splosh’ we will be looking at things that need water to live. So I decided to get us some classroom pets to look after. 

   

  
In other news… The Mud Kitchen has been a great success. We have made some wonderful things using our imagination.

   

  

  

  

Our busy first week back 

we have had a fantastic week back after the Easter holiday. We have been super busy planting seeds and plants.

   
 We also had an addition of some frogspawn into nursery. By the end of the week they had hatched into tadpoles. A frog even visited our pond! 

   
   

Easter week

This week we have done lots of fun activities to celebrate Easter and the end of term…

We have made cute litte chocolate nests, complete with eggs and a chick,

   

     

We have also made some beautiful giant Easter eggs with paper mâché (lots of messy fun)! But I’m sure you’ll agree the finished result is amazing! 

   

         HAPPENS EASTER EVERYONE! see you on April 20th after the holidays!
