Time to rescue the penguins!

Published on Thursday 25 January 2018 by Mrs Fox.

This week we have been investigating ice. We talked about what ice is made from and how the water turns into ice. We also talked about other things that might freeze and made our own very delicious ice lollies.

We also got a very urgent letter this week in nursery from the penguins at the North Pole. Jack Frost has been very mean and frozen some of their penguin friends. Therefore it was our job to rescue them. As a group we talked about different ways to rescue the penguins such as “using a hammer, pulling them out, use a wrench and a hairdryer” The children decided the best way was to warm up the ice so it would melt. Therefore we found different warm places around the nursery to see which would melt the fastest. Some of the children noticed that we had small and big blocks of ice. Tom and Estelle said the big block will take longest to melt. What great problem solving everybody, I am so pleased we rescued the penguins!

Our little rays of sunshine this week are Beaux Poulter for doing such an amazing job clapping out the syllables of different objects. Fantastic work Beaux! Ruby Buckle for trying very hard with our silly soup rhyming game. Brilliant work Ruby! Leo Lowes and Evelyn Goundry for settling so well into nursery life. They come in each morning without any tears, which is great to see. Annabelle Gilchrist for her consistent positive attitude and great sense of humour. Her cutting skills have also blown my socks off. Lovely work Annabelle! And finally Paddy-Lambert Cousins for thoroughly enjoying being outsider. He didn't let the weather put him off. He was fantastic at dribbling the football around the garden in some very muddy conditions.
