Going Green


The morning group went on a visit to Kinwegar recycling centre to find out more about recycling and looking after our environment. They observed the lorries arriving with their full loads and sorting out the contents into the different skips. One lorry was taking away all the plastic bottles to be made into something new. They also saw a roller crusher in action – it was rolling over a piece of wood to crush it into lots of smaller pieces. The children had a great time thanks to Emily and all the recycling team and we hope to continue recycling in the nursery and becoming much more eco friendly.

Happy New Year

Welcome back to nursery we hope you had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We have already had a very busy few weeks – both in the playroom and outside in the garden. We have noticed the change in the weather ouside, it’s very cold and frosty, which means we have to look after the birds in our garden. We have been making birdcakes using ingredients that the birds like to eat cheese, raisins, bread, nuts and broken biscuits. We have also been filling up our birdfeeders with nuts and seeds and putting out fat balls for them to eat. We will be observing and recording what type of birds enter our garden next week for the RSPB little schools’ birdwatch.
