We have been busy learning about the planets and space. We wanted to go and see all the planets but we didn't know how to get there. With some thinking and problem-solving we decided to build a space rocket! All the children helped decide how to build it before working together to build it.
This week we have been continuing to explore Elmer's journey through the story. We looked at the Jungle and had a go a painting with berries just like Elmer. We also looked at the pumpkins which had been brought in. Some were small and others were really big, round and heavy. One was cut open and we had a good look inside. The children agreed that the inside was very slimy.
The children had a go at mixing colours to see if we could make all the colours Elmer has in his patchwork. We found out that red and blue make purple, red and yellow make orange, yellow and blue make green and red, yellow and blue make brown!
September with the Engineers
It has been a very busy month getting back to nursery. We have been getting used to our nursery routine and exploring the environment inside and outside.
