Mini Entrepreneurs in Nursery 3!

minientrepreneurs

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!

Learning about disabilities

Children have a natural curiosity for the world around them and we want to teach our children here at St Peter´s that it´s ok to be curious and ask questions.
Embracing their curiosity gives us the advantage when approaching new teaching opportunities.

This term the children in Nursery 3 have been learning a bit about physical disabilities and have been taking part in numerous activities in order to get a sense of how a physical disability could affect their day-to-day life. Some of the activities they have been learning in the class consist of; Sign language, taste testing and guess the person whilst blind folded.

A visit from Primary

We feel that listening to stories is so important for children as it enhances listening skills, improves vocabulary and encourages them to use their imagination.

This is why we were so happy this week when two special little girls from Primary asked if they could come down to read the little ones a story.
They chose a book they felt would be beneficial to them and relate to what they are working on. The book they chose was, “The time it took Tom”, and the reason they picked this book is because it consisted of colours and counting.
