Nursery – Ducklings

  • Jaspers Beanstalk

    We read the story of Jasper’s beanstalk; where he plants a broad bean, and it doesn’t grow. We planted our own beans and learnt that they need warmth, water and soil to grow. The roots have started poking through which is a good sign. We played in the soil with the tractors. We also learnt about brushing our teeth as part of our healthy me topic.
  • Mr Wolf’s Pancake Day!

    We read the story of Mr Wolf’s Pancakes in preparation for pancake day.
    The children helped with mixing the batter for the pancakes. Once the pancakes were cooked, the children tasted the pancakes with a choice of different toppings. We ended pancake day with pancake flipping competition.
  • The Little Red Hen

    We have been exploring the story The Little Red Hen. In the story the hen makes bread and we have been making bread too.

    Once baked the children spread butter on the bread and tasted it. We also tried different types of bread as well as mixing flour and water to create a dough. It got very messy!
