Paper play in Nursery 1

We have been playing with tissue paper in N1. We enjoyed scrunching the paper and throwing it. And finally, we collected the paper from the floor and put it into the basket!!

These kind of plays help our kids to understand how to use some objects, in this case, paper. Also, they learn to understand prepositions such as “under”, “on top” or “behind” by carrying out the action (playing and scrunching the paper).

They learn as they play and have fun. What else??

N1 explores with goo!

This week Nursery 1 used all their senses when exploring the mysterious goo. The children were fascinated to see blue powder turn into goo when the teacher added water. We even learned how to say ‘Wow!’.

At first some children were hesitant to touch it but with encouragement from their teachers and friends they quickly got stuck into the fun! We all had tremendous fun and have been strengthening our fine motor skills.

Research on Language Acquisition in Plurilingual Kids

This week a team of researchers from the University of Barcelona visited us to carry out research on Language Acquisition. They want to understand how plurilingual kids acquire language and how can it affect how they learn.

The first stage of research was carried out last year and now they are extending it to confirm some of their initial findings, which are really interesting. The children who participated in the research were highly motivated and loved watching the stories in different languages that were on a very “strange” big  screen.  Here are some of them with their certificates!

We love it when storytellers come to St Peter´s to entertain us. We learn so much more when having fun.
We love reading stories but when we can see the story come to life is when we can really feel the magic!
The Blue Mango Theatre Company came to visit us this week to perform ´Jack and the Beanstalk´. The children loved it so much!
