Two of our children had an idea to make a "cinema". They carefully constructed it using large blocks outside, representing a "screen", a "sign saying what time it's open" and pretending small blocks were "packets of sweets". One of the children then made signs and posted them around the garden to let the other children know it was open!
There's been a great deal of construction going on at Nursery School - from castles to "the biggest bed in the world"!

Christmas activities in Nurture Nursery
Before we decorated our Nursery School Christmas tree, the children have been able to have a go at observing it really carefully and have painted what they can see.
The children in Nursery School have been busy planting winter bedding plants and have created an eco display using old wellington boots.
Physical opportunities in our outdoor area to support children's gross motor skills. Children have really been persevering to balance and walk on stilts around the garden.
In the Nursery School, children have been experimenting with weaving and threading textiles onto a frame and decided that they had created a "spider's web".
Following on from our Autumn Walks, children have continued to be fascinated by the leaves that have fallen in our garden and have been experimenting with collecting them using leaf pickers.
