In the nursery garden, we had an overgrown area. Over the last few weeks we have all worked hard digging out the overgrown weeds and tree. The plan was to create a herb garden however the children have decided this area makes a great spot to dig. The staff listened to the children as they decided what tools we needed (Spades were the most popular) and we are still deciding if we should wear all in one suits, tabards or just stick with welly boots.
As part of our risk assessment in the nursery garden we found that our planter needed to be removed. The children helped with the removal of this and we moving the mud from this to our bedding area.
While we were over at the tyre structure in the school we visited the school gardening area where we found plums, apples and raspberries. We brought these back to nursery to taste and have made an apple crumble.
We have looked at our own facial features – hair colour, eye colour and our emotions. We have been learning to recognise 2D shapes through lotto games and on the interactive whiteboard and learning to identify these in our environment.
We are learning to follow some visual timetables for handwashing and participating in the nursery snack routine.
