This week saw the grand opening of Kexborough Nursery’s Post Office and to properly get in to the spirit of things we decided to write a letter together to the one and only Santa!
We worked together to think of questions to ask and of course the question we decided on was “Will you come and visit us?”
We arrived to a big surprise when we saw that Santa had sent us a letter back! Hes a little too busy to visit us right now but he asked if we would like an Elf to come and visit. Which of course we eagerly accepted!
BBC Children in Need exists to change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. Their vision is that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood and the chance to reach their potential.
BBC Children in Need is currently supporting over 2,800 projects in communities across the UK that are helping children and young people facing a range of disadvantages such as living in poverty, being disabled or ill, or experiencing distress, neglect or trauma. In the last grant year alone, support has helped change the lives of over 589,000 disadvantaged children and young people, right here in the UK.
Today, our children dressed up and brought in a voluntary contribution which will all be set off to Pudsey and his team. We raised a fantastic £202.10 so thank you to everybody that contributed.
We can’t go over it, we can’t go under it. Oh no! We’ve got to go through it!
We have been busy in nursery makeing story maps of the ‘We’re going on a bear hunt”. We worked together to remember the story, using the book to help us. We started at the beginning and drew pictures of different parts of the story right to the end!
To celebrate science week we decided to be scientists and carry out our own experiment!
We started with boiling hot water, which we were very careful not to touch. We then added a cup of sugar and all helped to mix it until it had all dissolved which seemed like magic! We then added some food colouring and watched as the water changed colour. We dipped a lolly pop stick into the water and then worked together to sprinkle sugar on to the wet end. Next we had to cool the water down, thanks to a clever suggestion to put it in the fridge, the water was cool in no time.
We have left the lolly pop sticks dipped in the water to wait and see if our crystals grow!
We have been exploring pumpkins in FS1. We all tried to hold the pumpkins but they were very heavy! We felt the smooth skin on the outside too. We then carefully took off the top of the pumpkin, it smelt very strong, some children thought it smelt like strawberries. We then worked as a team to scoop out all the insides of the pumpkin, it was very slimy. We saved all the seeds from our pumpkins to use later and used the pumpkins as decoration for our Halloween party!
