STEM week Day 4 Nursery

 Today we explored materials in the nursery. We began by sorting out the toys we had into groups depending what they were made of. Some were made from wood and some metal others were plastic.

Through our discussions we began to think about the paper we use. Paper is used lots in our classroom as we love to make pictures but we wondered where it came from.

The children were fascinated to discover that paper is made from trees. Our Reception friends joined us and we watched how paper is made in a paper mill and then thought about how to recycle paper.

We ripped newspaper into small pieces and mixed it with water, then shaped it and left it to dry to create new pieces of paper. 





We had such a fun and busy day!

The Nursery children had a visit to the jungle today. They found out information about the different animals that live in the jungle and explored moving like different animals. The sloth was one of our favourites it was lots of fun moving slowly.






Watch out for the slithering snakes!

We then went on a fantastic bee hunt through the woods with Miss Hopkins, searching for the bees and finding out bee facts on the way.
