Learning in the Nursery

Our Learning Experiences 2020-2021



The children have enjoyed building their muscles using the new rope we have tied between two trees! Some children use the muscles in their arms to hang and pull their head up above the rope and other children have challenged themselves to get their feet to touch the rope. All this activity is building core, shoulder and arm muscles which will support their fine motor control and writing in the future.


Mrs Robinson's rabbits visited us in Nursery recently and as well as learning all about how to look after rabbits we were lucky enough to be able to stroke them gently. We do hope they will come back to visit us again soon!


After all the lovely, hot weather we had we have enjoyed running around in the rain and catching raindrops in bowls.


We have watched for weeks as our caterpillars have grown and become chrysalides. At the end of last week beautiful butterflies emerged and after a few days gaining strength and feeding on fruit and sugary water they were ready to be released.  After about 40 minutes of resting on children's shoes, legs and hands their flying improved and they away they flew.
