Growth

In Nursery we follow the children’s interests and have flexible planning

At this time of year, the children are very interested in a couple of topics, these are:

  • Growth of plants and animals
  • Minibeasts

Both of which you will be able to see in and around your house, garden and local environment.

We have already seen that some children have been busy growing at home and going for lovely walks in the woods close to their homes, therefore I think they may really enjoy learning some more about this.

BBC Bitesize

BBC has just created 4 maths games based around a garden and growing. The program is called 'Bud's number garden.' We enjoyed playing these games.They are aimed at year 1 children, but there are parts of each game that nursery children would enjoy!
