Is it magnetic?

Date: 17th Jun 2022 @ 7:19pm

Nursery children have experimented with different materials to explore which ones are magnetic and which aren't. After tryig to stick the magnet to the radiator with success they believed that magnets must stick to hard, smooth objects, however when they then attempted to stick the magnet to the wall they realised this must not be the case. The children explored the classroom and concluded that the objects that did stick to the magnet were all metal!

Nursery children have had a very interesting week learning about planets and aliens. We have sang '5 little men in a flying saucer', made rocket ships to fly in to space using the big bricks outside, used our creative skills to make our own aliens and rockets and loved reading Julia Donaldson's The Smeds and The Smoos!

Science Week

Date: 20th Mar 2022 @ 4:42pm

This week the children have enjoyed making Suet Balls to feed the birds. the children safely used a knife to cut off lumps of fat, they then used the warmth from their hands to melt and mould the fat and rolled it through the mixed seeds using their fine motor skills to squeeze all the seeds in! The children then chose spots around the Nursery playground to hang their balls from trees. We have used our excellent observation skills to watch out for any hungry birds!

Warming Winter Soup

Date: 28th Jan 2022 @ 12:18pm

This week we have been very busy making our own vegetable soup. The children selected the vegetables they would like to add, they helped to peel and cut the vegetables and finally (the best part) they got tp taste their soup!  The children used excellent sequencing langugae to describe how they made the soup. We also had some very interesting descriptions of the taste such as 'delicious', 'tasty', 'smooth', 'warm' and 'scrumptious'. 

It's Christmas Time!
