Nursery Latest News Spring 1 – Week 4

We started our final week of polar exploration with another question – How do penguins stay dry? We learnt that they have a waxy coat on their feathers which help to repel the water. We tested this adaptation by colouring in a penguin’s tummy with a white wax crayon, then spraying blue coloured water on the penguin’s tummy to see what would happen. We found out that the water does not like the waxy coating and left the penguins tummy dry.

In phonics we have been practising our listening skills through different activities. We have been recognising different sounds we might hear inside, and outside, as well as sounds we could hear in different environments. In maths we focused on the number 4, learning different ways it could be represented and how to form the number. We used numicon and dominoes to categorise the different representations we could see.

RSPB’s Great British Birdwatch

Today the Eco warriors took part in the RSPB’s Great British Birdwatch. We located ourselves near the allotment beds because we’ve heard lots of chirping there before. We only saw one little sparrow making the noise but we did see a lot of pigeons, one blackbird, 2 crows, 1 magpie, 4 black headed gulls and one red kite.

It’s not too late for you to take part at home too – you have until the 19th February!
