  • Chicks in Nursery

    Published 24/03/23, by Andy Mari

    This week in Nursery we have had a delivery of some special eggs! This has been a very exciting time for the Nursery children. 

    We put the eggs into an incubator, and we have been keeping a diary of how the eggs have changed. 

    On Tuesday our first chick hatched out of an egg. We watched the chick become nice and fluffy and we were able to move it into a brooder box, so we were able to watch them more closely. 

    As the week went on all ten eggs hatched! We now have 4 girls and 6 boys. 

    We are very excited to see how they will change over the coming week.

  • Science in Nursery

    Published 10/03/23, by Andy Mari

    This week in Nursery we have taken part in a science experiment for science day. 

    We all followed a recipe to make our own Gingerbread men and tested to see what happened to them when we put them into water.

    The children predicted that they might fall apart when wet. 

    We put the Gingerbread men in the water and as predicted they became all soggy, the water became murky and they fell apart.

    Luckily all the children had made two Gingerbread men, so they still had one left to decorate and eat.

    In Nursery we are Scientists.

The children followed a simple recipe to make their own pancake and enjoyed tasting them. We used words to describe how they tasted. Some of these were; yummy, sweet, soft and delicious! We discussed how to be safe whilst cooking and that only adults should fry the pancakes as the pan is hot!
