OUR FIRST GREAT NURSERY BAKE OFF!
This afternoon we held our first great nursery bake off. We split into small groups to make sultana buns. The children were able to weigh, measure and mix the ingredients independently. We learnt about where our ingredients come from and how to use scales to weigh out our ingredients. We followed a pictorial recipe, used mathematical language and engaged in scientific learning about how things can change when something else is added or heated up. The children also learnt how to use knives safely and the dangers of hot ovens in a kitchen.
When the buns were cooked the children all tasted their cooking. Most of the children thought that their sultana buns were "delicious"! The children and practitioners really enjoyed the experience which provided hands on, visual learning and the opportunity for adults to work with children more closely, engaging in lovely conversations. We will be cooking again next week. Please can any outstanding snack money be brought in so that we can continue to provide these valuable learning experiences. Thank you!
The New Garden Nursery Team!
Welcome back to our returning children and a warm welcome to our new children starting Nursery this week. Last week we were busy carrying out home visits with our new Nursery children so some of you have already met the new Garden Nursery team.
Miss Halliday - Class Teacher
Mrs Kembery - Practitioner
Mrs Barnes - Practitioner
Mrs Street - Practitioner
Every child is allocated a member of the team as their key person so please ask if you do not know who is your child's key person. We all work closely with your children so we are all able and available to speak to you about your child. We look forward to working with you and your children this year!
What will we be doing?
This term we will be focusing on settling children into Nursery, building positive relationships and ensuring children feel confident within their new learning environment. We will be exploring changes in the natural environment as we head into Autumn and learning about Harvest. There will be lots of exciting activities on offer every week, as well as, cooking activities. Please have a look at a few photos from this week below.
Welcome to Garden Class!
On this page we will add pictures of the exciting things we have done!
