Inspire your heart day 💖
In babies 👶 we have been decorating invitations for the queens 👸 jubilee for our parents. We used glue and tissue paper as well as lots of different colour paints 🎨🔴🟠🟣🔵🟢. The babies 👶 enjoyed exploring the garden 🌿 it was sunny ☀️ but also very chilly 🥶. We made sure we had our hats 🧢 and coats 🧥 on too. We liked crawling through the tunnel and walking over the bridge.
The toddlers have been inspiring our hearts with art!💜💖❤️🎨 We challenged our creativeness ✨and imagination ✨by decorating some hearts with different materials! 💖We used different coloured paints 🟢🟡🔴and sponges, glue and silver glitter✨ and practiced our cutting skills with scissors✂️ and some ribbon!
We have also been very busy in the garden today🪴🪵We have been playing in the sand and water 💦trays, using different containers to mix them together and see what happens to the sand! 🧐🤩We have also been playing a hoop throwing game to try and throw the little hoops into the big hula hoops!
On top of this we have been building towers🏗️ with the stickle bricks and making a car ramp🚙🏎️ out of the building blocks.
In preschool 👫 we have been expanding our numeracy, being creative, encouraging each other, doing a little sight seeing with in the nursery and so much more. 🎨🖌️🥳
We started off with our 🚀 ⛽ Before our activities based on the multiple rooms To create a free flow experience for them. First off we did a “Road Safety” activity where the 👦 👧 began to learn about various road signs, how we drive on the roads 🚗, what can make them dangerous ⚠️ and what we can do when 🚶🏻♀️ along them. This proved to be a success and effort was shown from all children.
We then came to sit down and give ourselves a little rest by doing some number skills and counting all the way to 1️⃣5️⃣! With a combination of using our hands and having our peers encouraging us it became a fun environment. 🎉👫🌳
Happy Chinese New Year!
It’s the year of the Tiger🐯!
The children have celebrated Chinese New Year 🧧 in many ways today.
They used their artistic skills to create a rawrring tiger 🐯, they used glue, scissors ✂️, and their finger skills to fold the paper, at the end they stuck two lollipop sticks together!
Spin, jump, twirl and hop went the children to the Chinese music. 🎵 They held hands 🙌 with their friends and spun around in circles, whilst others were creating their own imaginative dance moves. 🕺
Throughout the day the children have been showing an interest in Chinese numbers and have been having a go at copying some numbers on their own.✍️
We loved looking at and exploring the different animals found in the wetlands 🦡🦆 As an activity we coloured in what we thought the animals look like.🦆🖌️
In babies we enjoyed exploring what a wetland 💦🏔️ we enjoyed moving the water around with our hands, using the Dinosaurs 🦖 to explore the wetlands and using equipment to move water 💧
In preschool we loved saying what we knew about wetlands coming up with wet 🌊 and cold 🥶 we also enjoyed playing with Moon sand, 🌕🏝️ the children loved mashing the sand between their fingers, moulding it into shapes and playing with it 😀
