The older children recently found some cheeky visitors in their birdhouse! Some buzzy bees have been having a lovely time building a hive in the warm house.
The children looked up bees on their computer, to see how they could support them while they were in their garden and made ‘bee telescopes’ so they could inspect them closely without upsetting or frightening them.
One of the children told his parents about this and between them they came up with the idea of planting some sunflower seeds to make the garden a more ‘bee friendly’ environment.
They watched a small clip on the computer showing bees making honey, so they had honey on toast as a treat and made some Playdough bumble bees.
"Staff have an excellent knowledge and understanding of the children's individual needs and provide a stimulating environment where all children are excited and motivated to learn. Observations of children are consistently used to plan for children's individual next steps in learning."
Linda Shore, Ofsted Inspector
"This provision is outstanding . All practitioners have high aspirations for children's achievement. This means the nursery is exceptional in the way it meets the needs of all children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, and they make very rapid progress towards the early learning goals."
