Nursery News July 2017

Trips

This month the Rabbits and Foxes have been learning about Summer. Within our Summer topic, the children wanted to learn more about holidays and transport so we turned our home corner into an airport and have been learning about holiday destinations around the world. We have also carried out surveys of the modes of transport the children and teachers used to go on their holidays.

The Hedgehogs have had a great time exploring baking activities this month. We have been exploring the different textures of the ingredients and had lots of fun mixing our ingredients together with our spoons (and hands!).

We have all been getting out and about to the Meadows, the Fruit Shop and the Care Home this month. We have been taking our clipboards with us so that we can record what we see on our walk, using tally marks beside pictures of objects eg. dog, bike.
