Something magical happened last week in Nursery 3. The children created their own Mini Enterprise with the help from the GCSE business students in Pre-U. Both, the students in Pre-U and the children in Nursery 3 learned together to work in teams, to teach and learn and to take part in a collaborative business project.
It was amazing to see the children create their own Cookie Shop. They were involved in every stage of the whole business process. And that means a lot!
Within their teams, they were responsible for; market research, product design, buying ingredients from the classroom shop, baking and decorating the cookies, coming up with a brand name, decorating their shop for the big day and finally the role play part in which they would sell the cookies at their shop to the parents.
It is a great way to get the children to think of the bigger picture whilst paying close attention to the small details.
Getting the children to take pride in what they have created and worked so hard for was such an easy task as all of the children enjoyed the process so much.
A big thank you to the parents for showing up on the day and really embracing the role play task. Role play is such an important part of the young childs education and it means a lot to us that we could share this with you.
We cannot wait to do it again soon!
Nursery 1 are all set for their ´Easter Egg Hunt´ this afternoon with the parents.
They have their hats and baskets at the ready.
Have you ever tried painting with feathers?
Children love everything about feathers from the colours to how they feel all soft and fluffy.
It´s nice to explore with the things in our environment and that´s exactly what they did. The children in Nursery 1 explored by using the feathers to paint with. By swirling and mixing the different types of paint, they were able to create different patterns and textures.
Painting strengthens fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination so open up a bag of feathers and have fun!
Look where Nursery 3 have been!
Yesterday, the children experienced an unforgettable day at Can Montcau farm.
Feeding the animals, milking a cow, holding baby rabbits and chicks, learning where eggs come from, a picnic in the sunshine and naming the new-born chick are just a few of the things they got up to.
They had so much fun and cannot wait to go back in the near future!
There´s no better way to paint flowers than to get outside and see them in their full glory and that´s exactly what they did.
The children at their after school arts and crafts club, took their paper and pencils and went to the beautiful secret garden at the bottom of the playground where they found lots of different flowers blooming.
They looked closely to find the different patterns, colours and textures and tried to copy them.
Take a look at some of the work they produced…
Awesome performance by the N3 children today. We all knew the kids and their teachers have been busy learning the lyrics, actions and some sign language too! And finally, we enjoyed a great adaptation of the Eric Carlet’ story “The very hungry caterpillar”. Congratulations everybody!!
A Good Read
There’s nothing better than spending time with your nose in a book in the company of good friends, especially when you’re beginning to understand how to read!
