Yes we can! The woodwork bench is back and we are loving it! We have been focusing on safety and risk assessing while using the tools at the woodwork bench. Look at how busy we have been.

We have been exploring different genres of music in the nursery. Check out our dance moves. Classic rock and roll was a big hit.
Today we explored some of the special jobs bees do. We discussed what pollination is. Then, we pretended to be bees and spread pollen from one flower to another. We do hope this will help them grow and produce more flowers.
Jet Setting in Cockenzie Nursery
The purple and red group have been talking about going on holiday. They found that they could create anything with a big box and decided to make an aeroplane. The children directed the adults how they wanted their aeroplane to look. This is the result!
Why have Burns Day when You Can Have Burns Week?!
This week at Cockenzie nursery we have been celebrating and exploring many different aspects of our Scottish culture. From Scottish country dancing, making our own tartan and learning some Scottish songs and poems, we have had a great time learning about everything Scottish. We had a Burns supper as well as lots of lovely Scottish treats for snack during the week.
The blue group took a trip to the library today and we absolutely loved it! The librarian read us some stories and we borrowed some Christmas stories to share with our friends back at nursery.
Can we make the duck fly?
|Mrs Hardman and the children were able to use a plank, block and cuddly duck to explore forces. They understood about taking turns, and while waiting cheered when another child was successful. The children practised their backward counting from 5-0 in preparation for lift off.|
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!
Our Learning Stories
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!
Ready, steady, go!
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!

Well done red and yellow group!
