By mixing washing up liquid and water the children discovered the wonders of bubbles! We experimented with bubble wands of different sizes and shapes to see how this would effect our bubbles. The results were very exciting as you can see. The children noticed that some shapes created better bubbles than others and the more we blew, the bigger our bubbles got!
We love looking through our learning stories to remind us of all our achievements and experiences throughout our time at nursery. The ante pre-school children should all have their learning stories at home right now to share with their adults and return them back to nursery by the end of the week and the pre-school children will have their learning stories home next week so that they can keep them forever!
Today was sports day! Unfortunately due to the current circumstances we couldn’t invite all our adults but because we didn’t want the children to miss out we continued as we would, without spectators. For this reason, the children had the opportunity to cheer the other groups on from their bubbles.
We had a running race, an egg and spoon race, welly throwing and a bean bag race. Every child that participated was achieving, healthy and active today and we all had so much fun!

Look at the purple group go!
Well done red and yellow group!
This week we visited the Primary one playground as our very first transition this year for the pre-school children going to school. We played a game and spoke about our feelings about going to school. The children were very excited and had a lovely time.
We have watched our tiny little caterpillars grow and transform into butterflies and today we let them go. We learned so much about their life cycle and about nurturing them and felt like proud parents watching them spread their wings and fly off.
Hope everybody has had a wonderful long weekend! The caterpillars in nursery have been very busy in their chrysalises and I think by tomorrow we may have some new additions to our nursery. I think they are getting ready to make an appearance! If you look very closely, can you see them trying to wriggle out?
We love playing in our garden in all weather, especially when it rains! Thank you to our adults for bringing our waterproofs and wellies in to enable us to make the most of these enormous puddles! Look at how much fun we had in the blue and orange group and in the purple group too!
Following our discussions about recycling at gather this morning, we took a walk to the recycling centre in the school grounds. We took our used paper and cardboard and spoke about what might happen to it when it gets taken away. Come and see what we got up to.
The blue and orange group have been exploring the story of The Hungry Caterpillar. We have been using props and puppets to help us re-tell the story. As well as developing our literacy skills, it has helped us remember the order of the days of the week.
At nursery, we have been busy planting vegetables in our garden. We have been discussing ways in which we can nurture our plants to help them grow.
