Nursery are learning about growing plants

This half term Nursery are learning about growing.

We have made a lovely garden centre in our role-play area for the children to explore and have a go at planting seeds. They have had lots of fun pretending to be gardeners, digging in the soil and sweeping up the mud!

We have looked at and planted lots of flowers in the garden. The children have also  talked about the different colours they are and how they all have unique shaped petals, the children then had a go at painting their own flowers.

The school is having a sunflower competition to see which class can grow the tallest sunflower, the children in Nursery have all helped to plant and care for our sunflowers and they are doing well.


This week we are looking at how and where vegetables grow. The children will have a opportunity to look and taste different vegetables. We are also going to grow some cress and use vegetables to print with.

The children will be learning how to recognize, count and write their numbers to ten this half-term.

The children will also be continuing to learn their sounds through the read, write inc.  programme.

If you would like to help your child in their learning in nursery please come and talk to one of the nursery staff.
