Here are some ideas to do at home.
This week start the 30 day lego challenge and let your imagination run wild!
Go outside into your garden and look for:
Good luck and have fun!
Miniature Spring Garden
Collect items such as, twigs with buds blown down, moss, lichen, fallen petals, small stones, flowers there are plenty of etc. Find an outdoor corner or fill a wide, shallow container with soil, sand or compost and design your miniature spring garden. Water it gently each day and watch the buds on the twigs burst into leaf.
Task-Design a Woodland Creature
In class we looked at the book ‘The Gruffalo’ and we talked a lot about what the Gruffalo looked like.
Now it’s your turn to draw your own woodland creature. Colour it in and then describe it to an adult.
Enjoy music sessions with your children to boost development and mood. Your children have regular Boogie Mites music sessions at nursery and they will love taking part with you at home. Boogie Mites are offering free live sessions for you to join at home over the coming months and access to the videos via their YouTube channel: https://bit.ly/BoogieMitesYT
If you follow their Facebook page (https://bit.ly/BoogieMitesFB), you will get updates on the sessions available. You can find lots more information about the benefits of music on their website and blog. https://boogiemites.co.uk/

In our science workshop we explored bubbles and made our own snake bubble blower. We experimented with the different properties of liquids by making sensory bottles (glitter bottle or a wave bottle). We used magnets to investigated which objects were magnetic and which were not.
We used made rainbow collections from our outdoor environment to celebrate the diversity of nature.
The children used the feely box to explore the textures of different materials.
Our last activity was a rainbow skittle experiment.
We were very busy scientists!
