World Book Day in Bumblebees

We had a fabulous time dressing up for World Book Day in Bumblebees class. Can you guess what book characters we are? 

First up, the Morning Nursery...

And here are the fantastic costumes in Afternoon Nursery!

We all took part in a book hunt where we had to match characters to book covers. Later on, we looked at the globe and thought about different countries around the world. We then learned a new Russian story, Teremok (Little House)...

Later, Boris the bear, came to visit us and showed us some Russian things from his suitcase.

We counted different items he had to see what there was more and fewer of.

Boris taught us how to count in Russian, too.

And after all that hard work, we did some Russian dancing!

Morning Nursery Farm Trip

A HUGE 'thank you' to all the parents who have made our trip to Woodlands Farm possible!!! The children have had a fantastic time as you will see from the smiles on their faces. 

The wheels on the bus go round and round...

The mummies on the bus go chatter, chatter, chatter...

Whilst the children enjoy the view out of the window!

Old MacDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O.

And on the farm he had some cows...

....and some pigs...

...and some sheep, E-I-E-I-O.

We even saw some new-born lambs!

The children enjoyed looking at the chickens and doing a bit of bird watching...

However, one of the highlights of the trip was jumping up and down in muddy puddles!

After a long walk, everyone tucked into their well-earned snacks!

And finally, for a last chance to have a run round and round the garden...

and a cuddle to put the icing on the cake!

Forest School Friday!

On Friday, Caterpillar and Spider Class had their first Forest School Session!

We began our session at Base Camp where Karen (our Forest School leader) taught us the Forest School rules.
Karen also introduced us to all of the Forest School areas: -
The digging pit.
The den.
The secret paths!
The stick pile where Karen showed us how to carry the sticks safely.
We had a great time exploring all of the areas!
We enjoyed digging in the digging pit using all of the tools.
Lots of made cakes!
My cake has a cherry on the top!

We have made 16 cakes!
We found lots of minibeasts in the bug area and enjoyed looking closely at them using the magnifying glasses and pots.

I found a wiggly worm!
The secret paths were good fun to find and follow!
This is a photo of the royal family in the den!
We are kings, queens and knights! The king and queen sit on the throne!
At the end of Forest School we returned to Base Camp and washed our hands and then had a hot chocolate and biscuit.


 We had great fun at Forest School and are looking forward to going again next week!
