Welcome to Woolavington Nursery.
Children aged 2-4
'Making the most of every moment'.
The early years are a time where children progress and grow at a rapid rate and where children are bursting with awe and wonder, fun and joy. The staff at Woolavington Nursery recognise the special responsibility they hold as custodians of the early years and do not lose sight of this treasured opportunity. We provide stimulating indoor and outdoor learning opportunities that nurture all areas of children's learning and development.
We have had a busy start to the summer term, as we follow the children's interests using our 'In the moment' planning.
On returning to nursery after our Easter holidays the children were very excited to see that not only had the sand pit being filled up but it had also flooded, resulting in us having a very squelchy area to play in. When our wellie became stuck this proved to be very funny - there was lots of giggling and laughter.
With the lovely weather we have been able to spend a lot of time outside in the garden, building den's, exploring the selection of building blocks and taking our favourite activities outside.
We did some bubble painting, shared stories and some on the children even put on a show for everyone.
To celebrate the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle we made crowns and went to join the school in their high tea party.
For science week we did a selection of experiments, colour mixing using hand prints, cake making seeing the changes that occur, ice painting once the children had chosen which colours they wanted to make, rescuing baby dinosaurs from their frozen eggs - we needed to be very careful so that we didn't hurt the babies. The children then went on to make a nest and to care for the babies until they were collected by their mummies. We tried a flower experiment where we placed the white flowers into coloured water, the skittle and smartie experiment and then finished the week with rain storms - this was a lovely activity where the children had a clear cup of water with shaving foam on the top and then using pipettes squeezing food colouring over the top.
Science week photo's are in the gallery.
