  • How does your garden grow?

    Published 15/04/21, by Andy Mari

    This week we have introduced the children to our key question ‘How does your garden grow?’ The children were really curious to see the giant beanstalk and giant feet in our role play on the first day of term. Lots of them guessed correctly that our focus story of this week is Jack and the Beanstalk. The children have been busy acting out the story in the role and using the puppets outside. They have also been making and describing their own beanstalks using different resources such as duplo, junk modelling and megablocks in the water tray. They have also been taking on the challenge to count out the correct number of magic beans. This has been tricky as the children have had to use their fine motor skills and mathematical knowledge.

For example learning about the lifecycle of a chicken, we have made chicks using different creative resources and we have been counting out the correct number of chicks.

    The children in Nursery wanted to make a snowman, however, we have not had enough snow for this. We decided to make our own snowmen out of biscuits.
