Chinese New Year

Apple Nursery have been learning about how people celebrate Chinese New Year. We enjoyed exploring our Chinese themed tray and dancing to Chinese music as well as watching ‘Let’s Celebrate’ on CBeebies to learn more about Chinese New Year.

Exploring ice

Apple Nursery’s topic this term is ‘Let it Snow’. This week we have been reading the story ‘Elmer in the Snow’ and exploring ice. We enjoyed touching the ice and talking about what we know about ice. We discovered that using salt and leaving ice in a warm place helps it melt and turns ice into water.


Apple Nursery have enjoyed exploring water in science and using technological toys this week as part of our STEM activities.

Science Challenge – can you make the water stay in a cup when you turn it upside down?

We have been giving instructions to Code-a-pillars to make them move and using remote controllers to control Rugged Racers.
