The Enormous Turnip

This week in Nursery, we have been learning all about the story of The Enormous Turnip. The children have investigating vegetables using their senses by digging in the soil for vegetables and then preparing soup with them. They got creative when they painted pictures and printed with vegetables and dressed up to act out the story as well as playing with small world characters from the story. They learnt new mathematical vocabulary by pretending to be the turnip getting bigger and bigger and bigger and also the concept of first and last by standing in a line to help the farmer pull up the turnip.

Most importantly, they had lots of fun and loved sharing the story together.
