Dragonflies have had a great month learning lots of new things. Continuing on from April the children were still very interested in the human body and how it works. We done a very messy experiment to make our own poo! We used wheetabix, coffee, orange juice and tights. We used the tights as intestines for the children to see the process of poo being made in the body. The children found it hilarious but did not want to touch the poo at the end of the experiment so we flushed it down the toilet.

Children are learning about being fair and taking turns. Children have been voting each day for which story they would like to be read before lunch. Each child gets a counter at welcome time and puts it in the tub in front of the story they would like to hear.

One of the Dragonflies went on holiday to Spain, when they came back they told us all that they speak a different language in Spain and it’s called Spanish. We have looked at different languages within the room, focusing on French, we have been counting to 10 in French and learning how to say different colours in French.

We have started to free flow from the messy room, quiet room and the garden. Children can move their name in the hall to the area they would like to play in, they place their name next to the photo of the area they are playing in. This is helping some of the newer dragonflies with their name recognition and giving all of the children more choices in where they would like to play.

Our children have been exploring technology a lot this month, using the remote control cars and robots. We have also been using the children’s mobile phones to call people in the messy room from the quiet room. We have also been exploring direction using the bee bot.

Also this month we have received new bikes without stabilisers for in the garden. A few of the dragonflies have enjoyed showing their friends and staff that they can ride a bike on their own without support. A few of the children have learned to ride a bike here at nursery and a few more are beginning to get the hang of the new bikes and only need a little support.
