This week in the nursery, we welcomed Emily, Kate and Jude for their first days, whilst Mimi and Etta did two days! Throughout all these new experiences and discoveries everyone is doing remarkably well. It has been a busy week, and we’ve had a number of children showing an interest in space exploration. 5,4,3,2,1…blast off! The ideas begin. Lucius: “I saw rockets last night!” and “we need a launch pad!” Charlie: “If the children go to the big playground they could run around and be shooting stars!” Clara: “I know what fairy dust is and I can bring some in”. Whilst playing impromptu instruments the children created a song, “Rockets, rockets flying through the air”. Finally, using paints, glitter, buttons and other found items the children created a map of the galaxy! It’s all very exciting.
