Mrs Wilding's Words Lent 3
Nursery children have been busy learning about weather this week and discovering what happens when rain and sun happen at the same time. Nature has given us sun, clouds, rain and a drop in temperature this week thereby helping the children to understand the topic at first hand. Creating rainbows has aided their physical, colour mixing and colour recognition skills and helped with their counting. They have been exploring ice by touch and tools, using pipettes and food colouring to change the ice and observing large blocks melt over time. When it was raining the children went for a walk and listened to the sounds created on the ground, on umbrellas and in puddles.
Transition children have been learning about using water, where and how it is used in their homes, and its importance for life. They have been busy discussing the process of cleaning and have developed their scissors skills by cutting out pictures of clothing which they have then stuck into a picture of a washing machine. Lots of washing up has taken place in their home corner and the dishes and cutlery are now sparkling clean. I could do with some help like this in my own home!
