Term 3 Blog 2021-22

Happy New Year!! and welcome to our Term 3 blog. We have lots to look forward to between now and the Easter break including looking at the themes of Winter and Spring. It will be lovely to experience all the exciting changes in the Nursery garden and woods as we move through the seasons. We will also be investigating our Scots heritage through activities, songs and poetry. As always, we will continue to plan other themes and activities using the interests of the children . We hope you enjoy sharing our journey!

Week Beginning : Monday 10th January 2022

Winter Fun

This week the children have enjoyed looking at some the signs of Winter. They enjoyed playing with the ice in the garden. They explored their senses together and thought it was cold and wet to touch. The children then broke up the ice to make different shapes. Can you guess what shapes they made?

The children also enjoyed playing with ‘snow’, building igloos/snow castles and playing with artic animals

Bird Feeding

The children have also been busy feeding the birds in the garden and decided to make their own Bird Feeders
