Wonderful Winter

We have continued to explore Winter this week in Nursery. We have enjoyed the story ‘A Little Bit of Winter,’ where we learnt about how Hedgehog hibernates during Winter, but asks Rabbit to save him a bit of Winter so that when he wakes up he can see what it is like. Could Rabbit keep his promise? We talked about what Winter feels like and investigated the difference between warm and cold objects. We then started using lots of different materials to make a den for Hedgehog to hibernate in. We found some materials worked better than others as they could keep Hedgehog warm and dry during the cold months. We also had some special scratch paper and pens to write messages to Rabbit and played ‘Snowflake Swat’ in our outside area, finding numbers and using swatters to identify them!
