Peterborough Nursery March 2020

by Apr 1, 2020News, Peterborough Latest News0 comments

During the month of March, the children have continued to show interest in the world around them.

Our older children have extended upon their keen interest in story books when our local library bus came to visit us. We listened to some stories, then picked some to bring back to nursery with us. The librarian demonstrated to us what they do to help them remember who their books are with and when they want them back. We have also been looking at cause and effect, exploring and investigating what happens when we mix different things together. For example, corn flour and water compared to plain flour and water.

Our younger children have been planting potatoes in our nature garden. They dug some shallow holes, pushed in the seed potatoes and then carefully covered them, followed by giving them some water to help them grow. They have also been listening to story books about the world around them and their local environment.

Our preschool children have been reading ‘Cloudette’ to learn about the weather, whilst Big Toddlers have been reading ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ and searching our bug hotel for insects. Under twos have been listening to ‘Monkey Puzzle’ and learning about different animals.
