We have had a wonderful range of learning taking place this week. We have had children involved in exploring spiders, their webs and indeed making their webs.
Of course this week we also had our cake sale for the Macmillan Cancer Research Fund; where we raised £95.26p! Our thanks to all our parents and carers who helped with the baking or indeed with selling of what was truly scrumptious cakes!
This week saw the first of our premier showing of our children's animation project. The children's stories were absolutely wonderful, demonstrating a partnership with parents, children and school. A very special thanks to Dolly's and Florence's Mum who provided us with her great knowledge and expertise. Our thanks also to Maria (the teacher) who helped co-ordinate the project.
Don't forget our garden will be open tomorrow (Saturday) for gardening and cooking! Hope you can join us!
This week we have seen children continuing to harvest vegetables from our garden to cook with; as well as developing their knowledge about where foods come from. Additionally; children have been involved in designing and building a range of models. Some other children have also been involved in developing their skills in sculpting with clay and some children have been developing their counting skills through participating in a range of number games. Of course we had the police stables visit the nursery this week, which provided a great deal of excitement, curiosity and awe and wonder!
Please remember we would very much like all families to bring in a picture of their family with a brief description of where your family comes from.
Have a lovely weekend and enjoy sharing books with your child!
A very warm welcome to all the new children and families who started at Rachel keeling Nursery School this week.
The school has been very busy with a wide range of learning experiences taking place within the nursery. Such experiences have included children learning how to sculpt with clay: using both their hands and clay tools to shape and mould the clay. In addition to this experience, the children have also been extensively involved in harvesting our 'home grown' rhubarb from our garden. Through this experience the children have been engaged in problem solving how to remove the rhubarb, as well as developing skills in cutting as well enhancing both their observational skills and curiosity by watching how this amazing fruit changes through the application of heat.
Additionally some children have been conducting a survey to establish what we should do with our wonderful pumpkin in our allotment; all will be revealed next week! Have a wonderful weekend.
