Nest News - November
Junior Nest update
This month in Junior Nest it has been about the ocean and its creatures. The children have been busy making sea turtles, rainbow fish, crabs and more, to put in our sea cave in our room. For the older children this required painting and cutting skills, which the children managed very well. To extend this interest of the ocean and its creatures, the children have been singing and acting out counting rhymes, games and songs. We had an aquatic water trough outside filled with sea creatures and shells for imaginative play. We watched a short movie called “A Whale’s Tale” which helps clean plastic rubbish away from all the sea creatures, suddenly the whale needs help, and a young boy comes to the rescue. This started discussions about our ocean environment, and how to care for it and the sea creatures.
