The Great Outdoors Nursery 22/4/20

Hello nursery children.

We are now in Spring and if we were in school, we would be learning all about The Great Outdoors. One of the areas we would be looking at is Life Cycles. We would look closely at the life cycle of the butterfly and the chicken, with real eggs to watch hatch. There would of also been an amazing owl display from The Cheshire Falconry.

Just because we are not in school, it doesn’t mean we can’t learn about these wonderful things. We are able to go for a walk with our families. One park I know which is not busy is Boggart Hole Clough in Blackley. On the lake at present there are 4 sets of ducks with ducklings. There are herons to see and  if you look closely enough there are terrapins on the logs near the island. 

We can also watch information videos on Youtube and CBeebies on BBC Iplayer.

Books to read and watch.

Owl Babies by Martin Waddell, a wonderfully illustrated book about three baby owls who are waiting for their mummy to feed them.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson. These books are wonderful for learning about the Life Cycle of the butterfly and of course they cover lots of different areas of learning aswell.
