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.
