The children in nursery have settled back in after the long summer break. We have also welcomed some new children to our group. All children have enjoyed exploring the nursery both indoors and outdoors.
William brought a bag of apples to nursery that had fallen off the apple tree in his garden. We talked about the apples and described the colour and texture during group time. The children decided they wanted to make apple crumble with the apples. We wrote a list of the ingredients we would need after looking in a recipe book. Mrs Crowe went to the shops and collected everything off the shopping list.
Later in the week we worked with an adult to peel and cut the apples.
Next we put the pieces of apple in a pan and added a little water, sugar and cinnamon. We slowly stewed the apples and left them to cool.
Meanwhile the children worked with Mrs Iley to mix crumble using the flour, butter and sugar.
The children have been to our Forest School site today for our first session of the year. We all had so much fun exploring.
