Nursery Latest News Spring 1 – Week 4

We started our final week of polar exploration with another question – How do penguins stay dry? We learnt that they have a waxy coat on their feathers which help to repel the water. We tested this adaptation by colouring in a penguin’s tummy with a white wax crayon, then spraying blue coloured water on the penguin’s tummy to see what would happen. We found out that the water does not like the waxy coating and left the penguins tummy dry.

In phonics we have been practising our listening skills through different activities. We have been recognising different sounds we might hear inside, and outside, as well as sounds we could hear in different environments. In maths we focused on the number 4, learning different ways it could be represented and how to form the number. We used numicon and dominoes to categorise the different representations we could see.

With spring on its way, we have been looking out for signs of spring. In our nursery garden we have started to see flowers blooming and even a bumble bee came to see us. We learnt about how flowers grow and what they need to grow. On Tuesday we had went up to the hall to listen about Alice Hemming’s book The Leaf Thief.
