Thank you to Laura Skinner who dropped off 3 chicks to visit last week. This week Laura dropped off 2 runner ducklings and a chick to visit – as you can see, all the children loved the chance to get to hold the chicks and ducklings. It is so important for the children to have these opportunities, as some children wouldn’t otherwise experience this. They were all so careful when holding the chicks and duckling, asking questions about them, what they eat, where the mammies and daddies were and where they sleep. Laura has offered to drop the duckling back once they are a bit bigger so the children can see the difference in them, how they have grown, how they look when their feather grow in and how they change colour.
The 2-3's topic (Na tri Mucan beaga) is coming to an end - they made pig biscuits which they enjoyed doing.
The baby room are finishing off their chicks and lambs for the spring wall - this was even more fun after we had a visit from the lambs on Wednesday afternoon.
In connection to our topic 'An t-earrach' across all the groups, we had arranged for some visitors to pop into the garden... 6 pet lambs. Everyone got the opportunity to give them all a bottle of milk. The lambs were well behaved and didn't eat our daffodils! Its good to be able to learn about different baby animals that are born in Spring.
On our blog you can read about all the things we get up to in the nursery.
