Today we all enjoyed the benefits of our Russell Hill convenience store. Samantha converted our home-corner into a really ‘super’ supermarket. It was stocked with all the sorts of things you would find in any really good supermarket, such as fruit and vegetables, milk, eggs, washing powder, cereals, to name but a few items.
As parents and carers are now acutely aware, our children have been learning about life cycles of different animals at Russell Hill.
We have had the fantastic opportunity to hatch real chicken eggs. For the last 25 days we have been observing the eggs and finally on 25th day we had movement. WOW!!!!!!!
We have had the opportunity to grow our very own butterflies.
For the last 25 days, we have been observing the caterpillars and finally, on Friday 26th April 2019, we had 33 beautiful Butterflies. WOW!!!!!!!
As parents and carers will already know, we have been learning about life cycles of different living things.
After learning so much about the life cycle of a caterpillar, the opportunity was finally here for the children to watch and document at first-hand the different stages a caterpillar goes through before it turns into a beautiful butterfly.Continue reading Arrival Of Our Caterpillars
Easter means just one thing… an Easter egg hunt, and where better to have it than in Russell Hill’s lovely garden.
As we went into the garden, we had a surprise visit from the Easter bunny, we got so excited, we all started jumping with joy. It was great to have the Easter bunny at our nursery especially as he had a basket full of Easter eggs and other treats for us.
Today we visited the Natural History Museum. We have been learning and reading about dinosaurs so it made sense to go and see some.
We were all very excited as we entered the dinosaur exhibits. Everywhere you looked there were dinosaur bones hanging or towering over us. We were not scared as it was obvious we had more muscles than they did, they were no skin and all bones. There were big, small, familiar and unusual looking dinosaurs.Continue reading Natural History Museum.
No Christmas period is complete without a visit to the pantomime. So it was only right and proper that we took a trip down to the Harlequin theatre, to indulge ourselves in the obligatory Yuletide festive pantomime limitations. Snow White is a much-loved story and all the children were looking forward to seeing it. Before the trip we read the book so that we were familiar with the storyline.Continue reading Snow White Pantomime
On 7th MARCH 2019, Russell Hill celebrated World Book Day. There were some fantastic costumes, the and children and their parents were very creative.
The costumes ranged from scary dinosaurs to superheroes that saved the day, and the children were very excited to show their costumes off. The children were more than happy to let their imagination run wild and even took on the different roles, which was great fun to see. However, Felicity took the role of her costume character very seriously; she was absolutely determined to stay in character all day, which was really delightful to see.
The staff also dressed up in some crazy costumes from Minnie mouse to Oompa-Loompas. Parents looked on with amazement as the staff also stayed in character all day.
We all had a fantastic time!!!
