Nursery – First Half of the Summer Term

We started the new term off by thinking about growing things. We planted cress, beans and sunflowers. We have planted the sunflowers in the Nursery garden so we can watch them grow. We talked about the things a plant needs to grown and read lots of stories about growing, such as The Tiny Seed, Jasper’s Beanstalk and Eddie’s Garden. We also read the books Oliver’s Fruit Salad and Oliver’s Vegetables. We made our own fruit salads, trying some new fruits along the way. Some we liked and some we didn’t; lots of us weren’t too sure about the taste of lime! We also made our own wraps, thinking about making healthy choices and trying to include lots of vegetables. After talking about healthy eating we then thought about other ways to stay healthy. We talked about keeping our teeth healthy, getting lots of sleep and doing exercise. We all loved trying out some new exercises in the garden and also in P.E. We found out how our bodies change as we exercise; listening to our breathing and feeling our hearts beating faster. We finished off this half term thinking about animals and going on a trip to Thrigby Hall to see them in real life. Everyone enjoyed seeing the animals and spending time with their friends.
