Under the Sea with Nursery

In Nursery we have been learning about life under the sea. Some very brave parents came in and talked to us about  pufferfish (Sami’s dad), sharks (Leonora’s mum) and scuba diving (George’s dad). It was such fun and both adults and children alike enjoyed the talks. Some children even tried on an old fashioned deep sea diving helmet - amazing!

The Nursery children showed their curiosity by asking questions and expanding on the knowledge they had learned. They then went on to investigate pufferfish and octopus by looking at underwater footage of them. The children made books about sharks and chose their favourite sharks to draw, and made lists of what a scuba diver needs, as well as creating a diving book. Nursery made a whole class under the sea collage and added their sea creatures to them each time they learned something new. Did you know that the jelly part of the jellyfish is called the bell? 

This term, the Nursery children have listened to The Aquarium by Saint Saens and The Sea by Debussy and used their reflective thinking skills to communicate how the music sounds to them. 

Nursery pupil, Ottiline (age 4) said: “It sounds like cherry blossom falling from the trees.”

Nursery also enjoyed a visit from their buddies in Form 3 and sang the “Plastic Bag” song by Nick Cope - an environmental song about keeping the oceans clear of plastic. The children then had great fun sharing books and playing in the garden together.
