Emergency services a visit from the police.

We have been busy talking about the emergency services and this week it is the turn of the police. The police officers came to talk to us they told us about what the police do and how they help us. Then we went to the police vans and met the police dogs. We learned:

‘Police dogs sniff to help find people.’- Ella

‘The police keep us safe.’-Marni

The Little Red Hen

We learned that the school and nursery would soon be getting some chickens. As we were talking about chickens so much we read the little red hen story.

We made chicken hand prints.

We made up our own stories as well, some of the children read them to the rest of the nursery class.

A visit from Moira’s chickens.

We were all excited to have a visit to the nursery from some real chickens. Moira very kindly brought in a cockerel and a hen for the children to see. Everyone was keen to see them and talk about them. They were put in our nursery garden.

We got to name them.

Portia wanted to call the cockerel Milo.

Ella wanted to call the hen Ruby.

We talked about being gentle with the chickens and fed them some of their food.
