'Terrific Transport'

The children have continued to enjoy their topic exploring different kinds of transport in the air, on the ground and on the water.  Lots of them brought their bike or scooter to Nursery and drawed a picture of it using the charcoal and explored how it moved with experiments in the garden.  They made threaded wheels to hang up for a display about the wheels on their bike or scooter.  We shared the story of 'Whatever Next' this week and have used the props to retell the story.  The children trained to be astronauts in the garden - practising their balance skills and keeping fit.  We also made paper aeroplanes and tried different ways of making them fly further than each others.  Next week we will be looking at water transport and will be making model boats from a variety of materials to see if they will float or sink and explore the story of 'Noah's Ark.'

Welcome  to Nursery and we have had a fantastic start to the School term.  The children have settled in well and are busy making friends, finding out where equipment goes and have got much better at listening!

This half term our topic is 'Terrific Transport' and we have been exploring, aeroplanes, cars, lorries and buses.  Next week the children are going to bring their own scooter or bike to Nursery to talk about and we are going to draw pictures of them, experiment to find out how far they travel and describe to each other how they are different.  We will also be exploring space craft and water transport.

As always, please feel free to ask the Nursery Staff if you have any questions.
