This week we have had a lot of excitement and explored varied activities, from learning about Star ways day to train day. no matter what it was we had a lot of fun and explored new topics along the way, the children had a lot of fun learning new things and giving themselves a challenge at there same time.
May the th be with you! Happy star ️ wars day!To celebrate this day, the babies have been painting :artist: stars ️ with paint brushes Emma spoke to them about the colours they were using; and praised their wonderful work! This helps develop their creative skills as well as fine motor skills and hand eye coordination. We also listened to music on the sono system so we could have a dance!Meanwhile, the toddlers have explored flour. We made different marks and shapes in it with our hands and fingers helping our fine motor skills. We have also explored painting :artist: using our hands and sponges :sponge: We got absolutely covered in flour and paint! Toddlers have focused on our fine motor skills using Lego and making spaceships out of it! We’ve had a very exciting day!While this was happening preschool were showing off their footwork leg :leg: and arm skills with footballs ️. They were using feet or hands to throw or kick the balls into the goal . They worked as a team to get a goal or defend the goal and took turns to kick or throw the balls. To acknowledge Star Wars Day preschool have been using scissors to cut out their own stars ️ and decorate them to make sparkle and shine. This has developed using tools safely on top of an awareness of people interests around the world
The children have used truffles and dipped them into the paint and stamped them onto paper to see what marks the truffles left.
They also enjoyed making chocolate truffles out of play dough, they also used different numbers to see how many truffles they could make. But not forgetting making their very own truffles, they mixed all the ingredients together and put them in the fridge to set.The children have also enjoyed being independent helpers by buttering their own toast and picking what toppings they wanted. They also have been helping dish up their own food and washing up once they have finished.To top the day off, we had delicious truffles made by our wonderful catering company, HungryMoose!!
National Tain day 🚂and the children 👶 have been busy creating their own train 🚊🚂🚅 pictures, they were very clever in naming the shapes ⚫️🟥🔶 as they made their pictures.
They were so excited with their pictures, they worked together to make a great big train track 🛤.
We have all been exploring the different textures in our space tuff tray, the moon sand felt really funny running through our fingers.
In babies 👶 they have been exploring the coloured blocks 🟥🟧🔷🔲, they lined them up on the window sill and watched the sun reflect the colours into the room, they also built towers 🧱and then took turns in knocking them down, they also enjoyed playing bee boo through the larger blocks
