  • Chicks in Nursery

    Published 02/04/24, by Andy Mari

    Over the last two weeks in Nursery,  we have been very excited to watch eggs hatch into chicks! We now have eight chicks. There are six girls and two boys. The children watched the eggs closely and were lucky enough to see some chicks hatching live at school. We have been learning about how to take care of the chicks and have been talking about the life cycle of a hen. Alongside this, we have also created lots of chick artwork using different materials and have displayed these in our classrooms.

  • Spring time in Nursery

    Published 15/03/24, by Andy Mari

    This week in Nursery we have begun to notice the changes from Winter to Spring. We went on a Spring walk to see if we could spot signs of Spring. We noticed buds on trees, bumble bees and daffodils growing around the school. We discussed that it is time to prepare the Nursery garden, ready for planting fruits and vegetables.  The children have been busy weeding the flower beds and filling them with fresh soil. We then planted some onion bulbs as these take a long time to grow.  We can't wait to watch how these change over time!
