Nursery children see the first signs of sunflower shoots

The sunshine has worked miracles on our sunflower patch this week! There has been lots of excitement as the children have noticed shoots growing. Using the visual life cycle of a sunflower, the children were able to identify that the next part of the flower to grow will be the leaves.

Our World Map is now displayed in the classroom awaiting lots of pictures of countries you have visited. A big thank you to Charlie for his Lanzarote photos. All the children listened attentively to Charlie's exciting news of his visit to see a volcano. This led us to create our very own volcano using a range of resources - a very messy experience!

The children love exploring our outdoor area every day. Please ensure your child has appropriate clothing so that they can enjoy their play outdoors. It is also important that your child has at least two full changes of clothes in their bag in case we need to change them throughout the day. As the weather is getting warmer, the children are enjoying lots of water play. Their favourite this week has been making bubbles.

Next week, we will be continuing with adding to our World map by identifying animals that live in the different countries.
