Bit of birdwatching!

The children were spotting birds – do you know they found magpies, rooks, wood pigeons, sparrows, gulls, starlings and falcons. The rooks were in their nests so the children had a go at making their own nests.

Windsor Nursery School welcomes the Mayor and Mayoress of Wolverhampton

 

The children of Windsor loved meeting the Mayor and Mayoress and enthusiastically gave them a tour around the nursery and garden – showing them how and where to climb, inviting them to make playdough creatures and asking if the gold chains they wore were to protect them.  They were keen to share their interests and special learning journeys, which capture their play and learning. We would all like to thank the Mayor and Mayoress for spending time with us. It was a very rich experience for all.

Windsor Builders

The log cabin in forest school needed some repairs completing on them. The children were very helpful and worked out how levers can help us with heavy work

Terrific for 2’s – exploring forest school

Research shows that the most important way that young children learn is through movement. Take a look at how the outdoor environment stimulates the children’s motivations to move, explore and learn. Note how the children explore the natural environment with their bodies.

Tree Planting

The children are really noticing the changing seasons – the buds, the leaves appearing. They planted some ‘baby trees’ too. They also noticed that they had shadows as it was so sunny – but that the big puddle had dried up! All these things offer so many rich, real learning experiences.

One child when asked where the puddle had gone said ‘a worm had sucked it up’, another child suggested they needed to dig to find it.

Its amazing how children have these theories about how the world works – look out for those questions and don’t feel you need to correct their current understanding – just offer them ways to test their theories out.

Taking a look at nature

The children have been collecting sticks – Sharon showed the children how to listen for the cracking sound when they snapped so that they knew they were dry and good to burn. There were lots of interesting things to see, long wiggly worms, new leaf buds and yellow daffodils. They loved making the fire especially as that warmed the water for the hot chocolate!
