Wisbech Nursery July 2020

We have had such a lovely month welcoming back some of our friends into phase 2 and we have been very busy exploring our projects within our bubble groups.

The Under-Two’s bubble group have expressed an interest in nursery rhymes through our “what’s in the box?” song time sessions. The children have been enjoying sensory trays to link in with their favourite nursery rhymes and they have all enjoyed trying to make the dolls better whilst singing “Miss Polly had a Dolly”.  They have even helped find the ducks during water play whilst singing “5 little ducks went swimming one day”.

EYFS LINK: Literacy – Reading–   Interested in books and rhymes and may have favourites. (16-26 months)

Fun Fact: Nursery rhymes date back to the middle ages and the nursery rhyme Mary had a Little Lamb was written in 1830 by the influential US editor, novelist and campaigner Sarah Josepha Hale and it was based on a true story of a girl called Mary Sawyer taking a pet sheep to school. 

Bubble 1

The preschool bubble group have been very busy exploring their castle project and they have been learning about why castles were built and who used to live in them. They were excited to make their own castles using wooden blocks and they have also drawn their own versions of a castle. Some of the children used the grey foam bricks to build their own castle outside and they weighed the bricks to see if they were heavy or light. The children have extended their projects activities through water play and using the water bricks to build their castles on the water to see if they would float or sink.

Fun Fact: The Normans introduced the first proper castles, starting with the wooden Motte and Bailey castles, to England following their victory at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. They needed to protect their new kingdom, so as a result the early years of Norman occupation saw a frenzy of castle building.

Bubble 2

The Toddler and Preschool bubble have been busy with their project of vehicles after they expressed an interest in cars and the way in which they move. They have been busy using the cars in gloop to see what tracks that the cars left behind, and they have been building cars from recyclable materials. Some of the children have been using the coloured lollipop sticks as loose parts to create their own cars. The children have also been busy creating a car wash outside to make sure that the cars were clean.

We have also said a fond farewell to some of our Pre-schoolers as they have left Blackberries to move on to their new Primary Schools. We have had a lovely time celebrating their last day at nursery and the children tried on the Graduation cap and gown. We hope that the Preschool leavers have a fantastic Summer and we wish them good luck in  their new schools.
