Week beginning 14th February

What a lovely last week of term we have had in Nursery! The children have been working super hard and have impressed both Mrs Dickinson and myself with their phonic and number knowledge. 

We have continued on with our topic of Zoom Zoom Zoom We're going to the Moon. We have enjoyed learning about the Solar System and all the different planets. We became scientists and completed an experiment called 'Bubbling Planets' where we made our own version of planets Earth and Mars and used different ingredients to make them bubble!
