Nursery

The Nursery children have been bringing to school lots of robotic toys, cars and dolls for our carpet time, ‘Show and Tell’. We noticed that often the toys could transform into something else; cars transformed into robots, toys played sounds or lit up and dolls had dresses which would change colour when you put them in water, etc.  We used this children’s fascination and interest to open up a new project on ‘Robots’.

We set up a provocation area with real tools, such as screws, nuts and bolts and the children immediately became builders hammering nails and sawing wood - they loved the real life experience. Then the children used various materials to make their own robots and most of the robots were for making food. ‘’My robot makes chocolate cake. My mummy is chocolate cake too!” said Mehri. “This is chocolate milk!” explained Hayul when making her robot. “My robot is for Coca – cola,” Lucka said. “My robot is for making milk and carrot because chocolate is not healthy. It’s not good!” explained Paul.

As many robots were for making milk we decided to follow the ‘milky way’. Children searched on the internet and found two different ways to make homemade butter. One group made butter with their hands and shook a jar full of cream.  The other group used a robot (whisk!) to help them with the other recipe. When the butter was made the children realized we needed to make bread to spread the butter on so we made some too!  What a rewarding yummy Friday we had - the children got to taste their homemade butter and bread. They all agreed that the butter they had made at school tasted better than the one you buy in shops. Great project work, Nursery B!
