We grew cress just like The Little Red Hen grew wheat. We had to wait a week for the cress to grow.Then we had fun making cheese and cress sandwiches. We learned how to butter our own bread and how to portion out the cheese and cress.
We did an experiment in Nursery. Finding out what would happen when we combined water, yeast and sugar. It was amazing!! The yeast was activated by the sugar and produced a gas which in turn made the balloon expand.
In Nursery we read The Little Red Hen. Working together we made bread rolls. We weighed the ingredients and mixed them all together. Once that was done, we rolled out the dough into balls and then cooked them. We really enjoyed this activity.
During science week we had lots of visitors. We met reptiles and small furry animals. Some of us also took part in the science fair!
We had a fantastic turn out for ‘Family Friday’ were we made cards and collages for all out family and friends.
In April Ned cam to visit us. We read to him using story maps of the very hungry caterpillar.
We like to get comfortable on our sofa and share our love of reading with our friends and even Ms Edge.
In Nursery our story was The Gingerbread Man. To get us started we made so very tasty Gingerbread men.
During Citizenship week we had a visit from some lovely Police Women. They told us about what they had to do for their job.They let us try on some of their uniform and even let us wear their handcuffs! We loved this visit so much.
For Cultural week, Nursery learned about South Africa.
We had a great day when we came in dressed up in our safari clothes.
We all went on a safari around the Nursery to find the jungle animals.
Lions, tigers, elephants!
It was Cultural week at Hallsville, on one of the days we all came in wearing our Cultural clothes.
We also brought in some of our cultural foods from home for all our friends to share.
It was very exciting to try new foods.
We all dressed up as scientist for Science week.
In Nursery we explored mixing colors together to see what colors we could make.
We made pink, green, purple, brown and even black!
Stay and be Festive
We all worked independently together to build our own park. We made a see-saw and a slide.
It took us a long time but we really enjoyed ourselves.
In Nursery our new book for the next 3 weeks is The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Using large paper and paints we all painted pictures of the different fruit the caterpillar ate. We had fun exploring different colours and fruits.
We became Bug Detectives!! Using our magnifying glasses we set off to find as many bugs as we could. We found worms, fly’s, ants and lots more.
Enabling Enterprises Day
In Nursery we were asked to design our own mode of transport that would go through a swamp, up a mountain or under the sea.
Once we had drawn our design we used different construction materials to build it.
What wonderful designs!
Stay and be Festive
The children and their parents got in the festive spirit at Nursery.
They decorated Gingerbread Men and made Christmas cards and decorations.
Build A Tower
For one of our activities we had to give ourselves a challenge.
These children challenged themselves to build a tower with 20 wooden blocks.
Good job everyone!!
We have been reading Whatever Next and learning about space.
Using large black paper and paint, Nursery worked together to paint what they think they would see in space.
They painted rockets, planets,stars and aliens.

Star is the School Dog and she came to spend the day with us. It was so lovely to see her and to get to stroke her.
We even gave her a check up to make sure she was okay. We all love Star.

In Nursery we always enjoy playing games with the parachute. Everybody is always excited to join their friends.
In Nursery we used the tweezers to pick up the sticky red spaghetti. This is great practice for our fine motor control.
In Nursery we like to explore the digging area to see what we can find. It takes a lot of work to dig a hole!
