As part of our transport topic, we have welcomed into the Nursery one of the parents to help us with some D & T work. The children have been looking at the design of trains, and then making our own models using recyclable materials. We wanted to build an engine train for the front, and then a series of brightly coloured carriages. We have also made some passengers to sit inside our models! You can watch a short video from our model building session above.
The children have then been deciding upon an imaginary journey for their trains. We want to explore the idea of travel and to think about the possibilities that are available to us. We really appreciate this close parent involvement in the Nursery. It is wonderful that so many of the parents are able to volunteer their time to pass on their valuable skills.
