STEM week

We have had an absolutely incredible week for STEM week.
The children have been amazing and have enjoyed all aspects of the week. We have all been scientists, engineers and mathmaticians taking part in thhought provoking and exciting activities.

Activities that we have been apart of include: making boats with junk modeling, making lava lamps, sea themed observational drawing, floating and sinking testing, smoothie making, Plasticine boat making, boat racing.
We planned and made boats out of different materials where we then tested to see if they floated on the water.

We have also had a great experience with some fish where we got to touch them and explore them close up.

We have had talks from Plymouth Marine Aquarium and Wembury Centre which was fantastic so a big thank you to those people for coming in to tell us some amazing facts and show us some great artifacts.

Towers of 10

Our children have been learning to make towers of 10. They started by counting out 10 cubes from a large box of cubes and then made a tower with said cubes. This made a tower of 10.

The children were shown a group of items before being hidden. They then needed to write down the the number of things they thought were being hidden.





















All children tried very hard at writing their numbers and developed their estimation skills.













Exploring the outside

The children have enjoyed exploring the outside and looking for mini beasts. They used magnifying glasses to enlarge the bugs that were found and were encouraged to lift things to look underneath.

Nature Nursery

In our Nature Nursery session this week we made chick nests using natural materials. The children all had a pot each and had to go hunting for the hidden bowls that were in the environmental garden. The bowls had different materials to help make our nests. Our nests consisted soil, leaves, sticks, straw, acorns and finally a chick.

Taller or shorter

The nursery children have been starting to learn about tall and short. They were all given 2 minutes to make a tower and once the time was up they compared to see which one was the tallest and which one was the shortest.
