We have had a wonderful week in Nursery as usual.
The children loved returning to Nursery after the weekend to see that the ducks had grown. They were now strong enough for the children to have a little hold and for them to go in the water. The children thoroughly enjoyed watching them swim and seeing how they use their webbed feet to move through the water quickly.
On Monday the children enjoyed learning the new sound ‘d’. They decorated their sound card with dotty stickers and found it funny that the ducks could go on the sound shelf.
On Tuesday, the children enjoyed talking about their science related show and tell. The children went into great detail about how the objects moved, changed or transformed.
The children painted pictures of the ducks this week, these will make a front cover for their duck diary. They chose the colours they wanted and remembered to add specific parts of the duck such as their egg tooth and wings.
We also weighed the ducks. We compared them to bricks and worked out that 5 bricks was the same as one duck. We also compared the duck to snack time bear and a duck teddy and we learnt that a duck is much heavier than both of them. We recorded this all in our duck diaries.
On Wednesday, the children enjoyed making something special for their Mummy. They were told to make a flower however, they could choose how they created these. This meant that the children’s creativity really flowed and has resulted in some truly wonderful cards.
On Thursday, we had to say goodbye to the ducks. We talked to the children about how they need to be returned to the farm and why they cannot unfortunately stay at Grimsdell School. The children were sad to see them go.
