I am delighted to let you know that we are a FINALIST for the Food Award in the National Awards scheme run by Nursery World Magazine.

What's happening NOW at Blue Grass Purple Cow

As some of you may have noticed, the caterpillars are still inside their Chrysalis in our butterfly net hung in Reception, we are hoping that they will transform into beautiful butterflies next week, completing our topic on Butterflies and Bees.

 

Moving on to our topic this week, we have 'Water, Water Everywhere!' This sees the first of our 'Water Days' on Monday where we will have lots of outdoor activities based around water, such as a water slide, water racing and our under-sea inflatable. Our second 'Water Day' will be on Wednesday. Can I just remind everyone to send in some spare clothing for your children to change in to on these days.

 

The Meadow will be painting with ice, bathing the babies and scooping up water in our water tray, as well as using the watering cans to feed our plants.

 

The Orchard will look at items that float and sink and trying to find out why. They will be learning to make their own boats using folded paper and having races down the drainpipes.

 

Whilst over in The Brook they will explore where our water comes from, they will be problem solving on how to cross the river without getting wet and building rafts out of crates.

 

Another fun filled week ahead and hopefully the weather will hold out for us.

After a busy start to the Summer with two weeks of Blue GRASStonbury, Butterflies, then Bees, we move on to one of our favourite topics Water, Water Everywhere.

The week will consist of exploring and experimenting with different ways to use water and how water helps us. The Brook will be looking at rivers, waterfalls, canals and reservoirs, while The Orchard explore washing, splashing in big soapy puddles and, how water helps our plants. The Meadow will be exploring the sensory approach; different coloured water each day, emptying and filling and, having a paddle with their feet.

Wednesday 8th Aug and Friday 10th August are Water Days.

On our Water Day we will be having different stations of water fun and you can guarantee we won’t be staying dry! You should already have received an email with information but, we kindly request that you bring a labelled bag of spare clothes for your child on these days.

Other Information 

Jenny and Kori recently attended Forest School training and it has been a big focus of our outdoor practice over the past few weeks. We hope the children have shared some of their outdoor learning experiences with you or that you have seen pictures in their Day in the Life Reports and on ParentZone. We are continuing to use Forest School to influence our outdoor practice of using natural resources. Jenny has also created a display in Reception, with photos and examples. Please take a moment to have a look.

I hope you all looking forward to a fun, wet week next week!
