This week at our nursery we have been learning about the role of a carpenter. Both Joseph and Jesus were carpenters and we learned about the tools they used to make things with wood.
Mrs Raine modelled how to use the tools safely as the tools we were using in the nursery were real tools. We practised using the tools and some of us were able to join pieces of wood together to create a piece of woodwork.
Gardening with Mr Bell
Over the last 2 weeks we have been working in our school allotment with Mr Bell. He showed us how to prepare the beds, how to use the tools safely, how to plant our seeds and how to look after our plants. We have planted beetroot, cabbage, onions and sunflowers.
We have been learning the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. He was so hungry that he ate lots of food, and grew into a very big caterpillar.
We have our own caterpillars in Nursery which are eating the special caterpillar food so that they grow too. We are watching them closely to see how they change.
Emilia had some chicks hatch in her chicken coop at home so she brought them in for us to meet. We used careful hands to hold them and we loved how soft and fluffy they were!
