Nursery - Owl Visit - Too-wit too-woo
In our literacy, we have been focusing on the story 'Owl Babies' by Martin Waddell. We had a visit from Douglas (tawny owl) and Paul (barn owl) who came from Gauntlet birds of prey in Knutsford. The children stroked Douglas to feel his wonderful owl feathers. The children loved watching Paul fly around the nursery environment. Some brave children even put on the gauntlet for Paul to fly onto.
Nursery - Gardening
We have been talking about how to grow and look after our plants in nursery. Some of the children have removed the weeds from the garden area and planted some leeks in their place. The children decided to water the plants following a discussion about what the plants would need to grow.
Space Week - As part of Understanding the World/Science, we have been exploring Space in nursery. We discussed what we might find in Space and decided to become astronauts and journey to explore the Universe. We discovered that a rocket would be needed to make our journey. The children built a rocket, made moon sand and loved pretending to be aliens.
As part of our nursery phonics, the children put on their listening ears and have been on listening walks around school to help tune in to sounds in the environment. We tried to find some high and low pitched sounds around nursery using beaters.
