Welcome to our Nursery Page!!
‘Are eggs alive?’ was the topic for this half term in nursery.
The children went on a walk and we looked for signs of spring in our outdoor areas. We discussed the flowers that has grown and how the trees had begun to grow new leaves.
Next we learned the story ‘The very hungry caterpillar’ and learned about how butterflies started off as eggs. We had our very own caterpillars in nursery and watched them grow from tiny caterpillars into huge caterpillars that changed into cocoons. We think they will change into butterflies after the school holiday. We made a big hungry caterpillar from balloons, paper and glue and we painted our own caterpillar pictures.
While our caterpillars were busy eating and growing, we got our very own chick eggs. We kept them nice and warm in the incubator until one morning, we came to school and five chicks had hatched!
We had four yellow chicks, these were boys and one brown girl chick. Because the chicks looked the same we couldn’t pick names for all of them so we named them Thing 1, Thing 2 and Thing 3, we named the brown hen chick Henrietta and the yellow boy with stripes, Chickaloo.
When our chicks were busy eating and growing bigger, we did some planting outside in our wild area and inside we planted our very own sunflowers and beans.
We have had a great time in nursery learning about life cycles and growing.
