This half term we have been very busy in Nursery. We have been planting vegetable seeds in our garden. We have planted pea seeds, pumpkin seeds, tomato plants and sunflowers.We keep looking to see if they have grown.

We have looked signs of spring in our outdoor area and took photographs on our iPads. It was very exciting and fun.We could see the blossoms on the trees and our daffodils and tulips had grown.

We have been very busy baking this half term. We have made lots of different biscuits, cakes and flower sandwiches. Next half term we are going to make bread like the Little Red Hen in our cookery room.

We have looked at the different animals that can be found on the farm.We found out the different places they lived on the farm, what they ate and what they looked like. We have listened to lots of farm stories such as Farmer Duck.

This week we are going on a dinosaur hunt and hatching dinosaur eggs.........very exciting. We are also going to be paleontologists and search for dinosaur bones in the sand.
