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.
On Thursday, Kareem’s baby brother came to nursery for a bath! He was so good, and seemed to enjoy the attention during bath time. We watched how his mother got him ready for the bath, and checked the temperature of the water. We had a turn to come and wash him, and dry him too. We also enjoyed sharing a story with him during and after the bath! Can you believe he did not cry at all?
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!
