Today we explored flowers with afternoon Pre-Nursery…
I asked, “What’s on the table?” #pn31, #pn15 and #pn14 tell me “Flowers.” #pn15 continues, “They’re bright.” Mrs Riddell asks, “What colours can see?” #pn15 replies, “Pink and blue.” #pn15 says, “White, I love white.” #pn32 says, “Blue and yellow.”
Miss Carruthers points to the leaves of the flowers and asks, “What are these called?” #pn15 tells us, “Leaf.” Miss Carruthers pointed to the bud of the flower and asked the children what they thought it was but they were unsure so we told them it was a bud; the part of the plant where the new shoot, leaf or flower develops from. #pn17 identified the stem.
We passed the flowers around and encouraged the children to smell them; #pn15 said, “It smells good.” #pn18 pretended to sneeze after smelling the flowers!
I asked, “Where do you see flowers?” #pn17 tells me, “In the park. I got some in my garden.”
We then used the flowers to create a beautiful piece of mark making by dipping them in different coloured paint.
