Caring for Living Things

Here at Levenhall our children have enjoyed visits from Mrs Lowrie’s dogs Sophie and Molly. The children learned some of the commands used such as ‘stay’ and ‘sit’ and were able to walk them and brush their coats. She then brought her baby lambs Speckle and Fudge who were only one week old. The children helped to make up the milk and feed them with the feeding bottles. A great time was had by all.

Recently both rooms have had the experience of watching the  tadpoles develop into frogs. They observed carefully every day and informed us of the changes. Thank you to Mandy and Don who have given the frogs a home in their garden pond.

We now have caterpillars and are awaiting the change into butterflies. Both rooms have suspended a butterfly net and you can see some of the chrysalis inside. Keep watching and you will see them change into Painted Lady butterflies.

Ready, steady,go…….

Gold medals for everyone who took part in our recent obstacle course. The children had their running shoes on and with lots of energy made their way around 5 different obstacles displaying their skills of climbing, balancing, sliding, crawling, jumping and co-ordinating their large movements. Each child had to go around the course 4 times before they were awarded their medal and received a round of applause from parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles who came along to share their support. Well done. We hope to raise lots of funds to help towards our family outing to East Links park.

Mary,Mary quite contraty………

 How does your garden grow? The children have been using their green fingers to plant a variety of seeds, vegetables and plants at nursery. They have planted potatoes in the vegetable plot, beans in the planters as well as carrots and leeks. They have planted individual seeds in little pots to take home either sunflowers, marigolds or nasturtiums. On a visit to Strawberry Corner garden centre the children bought lots of lovely bedding plants to help make the nursery garden look beautiful and hopefully attract butterflies and bees. We have also been enjoying the taste of rhubarb which has been growing tall in the fruit garden.
