What a fabulous week we have had at MonkeyMoos! We went down to the depths of the ocean and learnt all about the sea creatures that live there. We have also been sharing lots of love whilst celebrating Best friends Day. We have also visited a childhood favourite- Donald Duck!
We have enjoyed having a tea party in the home corner . There were lots of different foods .
The children have also been creating their own volcano. The children have enjoyed being creative with paper mache. They have done a great job and we can not wait to see what it will look like.
As well as paper mache they have enjoyed painting their own volcanoes and drawing the biggest volcano . Great job everyone.
In babies they have enjoyed enjoyed going on a walk with the older children going to the shops .
Then they enjoyed some splash time in the water .
The babies have been experiencing a sensory tuff tray; feeling different textures, including flour, rice and ice The children used cups to fill and pour the flour or rice and watched it fall back into the tray. They were all fascinated that the ice made the flour stick to it and that it was cold on their hands ! They spent a long time and high concentration on this activity.
They have been listening and dancing to music and moving our bodies in different ways. Toddlers have been exploring printing using paints. We used paint brushes and looked at the strokes they made on the paper. We also used the paint brushesto paint our hands. The toddlers then pressed their hands against the paper and made pretty handprints.
The toddlers have also been building objects using the magnetic shape. We made a bal ️using the magnetic shapes but we couldn’t kick it otherwise it would break! Toddlers have done some quiet and calm reading. We looked at lots of different books. Some had animalsin and some had people in. They were very exciting!
Preschool have been exploring their creativity today by using stamps to make pictures using paint . This engages them in conversation about the pictures they have chosen as well as counting how many times they stamp as they create a picture. The children have also been engaging in exploration of the ICT equipment such as phones and cameras . We have been looking at the buttons to discuss how the items work in order to engage in imaginative play using the items.
The children have enjoyed exploring different sensory items today. In the messy tray we had baked beans, chick peas, rice pudding and sweet corn. 🌽 The children had lots of fun guessing 💭what the rice pudding was by smelling 👃 and saying “it smells like milk.” 🥛
They have also enjoyed water 💦 play by splashing in the water. They also had the coloured objects and was naming all the animals they could see and what different sounds they made.🐄🐯🦆
We also had a visit by a “big truck” that was collecting the skip. They watched by the fence as the truck moved up ⬆️ and down, ⬇️ at the end it beep his horn and waved bye.👋🏻
