This week in nursery…

…we were blessed with good weather whilst across in the woodland. We experimented with digging tools and den building kits. The children had to make decisions about where they were going to work as well as who they were going to work with. They were reminded of safety and making sure that they followed the rules but there was some wonderful imaginative play in the dens that they were building themselves. They had great  fun.

Outdoor Woodland learning…

We arrived at school on Friday to find a pirate had stolen our pirate treasure! So when we got to the woods we decided to make treasure maps to try to help us find the treasure. Our maps worked and we found the treasure!
We are also making butter knives out of wood. First we worked together and used bow saws to cut the wood from the tree and then to cut the branch into pieces that would be the right size for a butter knife. Next week we will learn about whittling the wood to create the knife shape. The children had great fun at learning new skills and some said “I’ve never done this before”.

We were so proud to receive the attendance trophy for another week.

Then went on to celebrate and enjoy ourselves in the woodland. We were very excited to discover that we have chicks nesting in a birdhouse! We were fascinated and this led to a deep discussion and many children asked questions and shared what they know or think about families, birth & babies. They also learned how we had to stay away from that area of the woodland so that we didn’t scare the mummy and daddy bird away. Then they went off to do their self directed learning in different parts of the woodland, including mud kitchen, using digging tools, rope and climbing activities and even building a bird watching den with ropes and tarpaulins.

This week in nursery …

…our story has been about monkeys so when we went to the woodland this week we were monkeying around. We pretended to be monkeys moving through the woodland and in the mud kitchen they made a monkey brew. That was until one of the children noticed that there was a bird in the bird house. We were then trying to be careful and quiet to see if we could see the birds. We then talked about the bird and why the adult bird was coming and going
