A lovely first week in May enjoyed by all.

We have been celebrating the Kings Coronation this week. There has been tea parties with all of royalties favourites- including scones. What do you put first though? Jam or Cream? We have been wishing the sun to make a longer appearance by learning all about the sunshine and having sunshine themed activities on Wednesday. We have also been learning all about firefighters and the incredible job that they do. A week full of experiences, like every week at MonkeyMoos.

Today we have celebrated National Sun β˜€οΈ Day and the sun came out especially for us to have fun with!

We have spent great time outside in the sunshine! β˜€οΈ We have been working together to build a train πŸš‚ out of the blocks, using different size shapes and using circles as the steering wheels πŸ›ž. Once the train was ready we all climbed aboard and chu chued our way to the beach. πŸ–

Next stop as we enjoyed building so much as put the tyres πŸ›ž all in a line and added more challenge for us by adding them at different angles and heights. We them stood on a line and waited for a safe space for us to balance, crawl, climb our way across and jumping big at the end!

We have learned about all the weathers today and not just the sun. β˜€οΈ We all had a chance to speak and identify the different weathers and then had to match them together with the correct pictures and objects.

What colours are in the sun?…. After discussing the colours of the sun, which we spoke about red πŸ”΄, yellow 🟑and orange🟠. We turned into scientist πŸ‘©β€πŸ”¬ and made a sun β˜€οΈ in a bottle! Firstly we added oil to the bottle which was then topped up with water πŸ’§ and the colour we decided we wanted to use and lastly we shaked them all together and then magic πŸͺ„ happened and we had a sun in a bottle.

A different way we approached National Sun Day was making our own newspapers. πŸ—žWe looked at a newspaper and spoke about all the interesting fun facts we could see from food, animals and even the king! πŸ‘‘ We then used our imagination skills to interpret our own creation of a newspaper. We had some much fun creating these, they were all filled with rainbows!🌈

In our tuff tray we had a fun firefighting activity set up for the children to play with. We used stray bottles with water to put the pretend fire out and used the fire engine to get us to where we needed to be. We also spoke about how dangerous fire can be and how we have to be very safe around them. πŸ‘§πŸ‘¦πŸ‘©πŸ‘¨β€πŸš’πŸš’πŸ’¦πŸ”₯

We then enjoyed going out to the ball courts were we enjoyed running around playing chase and letting off lots of energy before coming back to nursery. πŸ‘§πŸ‘¦βš½οΈπŸƒπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Just before preschool had their lunch they went over to the field on a hunt to find snails and worms and they did. The children held them in their hands and was very careful not to hurt them once they had finished they put them back where they belong. πŸ‘§πŸ‘¦πŸ€²πŸͺ±πŸŒ

As today was also Star Wars Day the children enjoyed this colour lightsaber activity and did really well to correctly tell their grown ups what colour was what. πŸ‘§πŸ‘¦πŸ‘©πŸ”΄πŸŸ’πŸŸ‘πŸ”΅

Babies have had a great day. πŸ‘Ά

They have enjoyed going down on their slide and laughing when they reached the bottom and did it all over again. πŸ‘ΆπŸ˜„

They joined for the ball courts adventure and also did so well to practise their walking skills and joined in with the older children’s activities. They also thought it was very funny being chased by the older children.

They needed a little rest after such fun being out this morning and sat nicely with their grown ups looking at books. πŸ‘ΆπŸ‘©πŸ“š

The sun has been shining 🌞!!

Today in babies πŸ‘Ά we have been celebrating πŸ₯³ firefighters 🧯 day and May the 4th be with you ⭐️  

In our tuff tray we had a big drawing ✍️ of a fire πŸ”₯ and some spray bottles next to it. The babies πŸ‘Ά used the bottles of water πŸ’¦ to spray and put the fire πŸ”₯ out. This was good for their gross motor skills, squeezing their hands πŸ™Œ on the bottles. 

The babies πŸ‘Ά have liked experience a rice character tray for Star Wars, the character was Grogu made with green and brown rice. The babies πŸ‘Ά used their hands πŸ™Œ to feel the sticky rice. 

The babies πŸ‘Ά later on enjoyed a game of β€˜bowling’ using a ball ⚽️ to knock ✊ down the star ⭐️ wars characters on cups.

The preschoolers and toddlers have had lots of fun today celebrating national fire dayπŸ”₯πŸš’

We drew our own firesπŸ”₯ using chalkπŸ–. We used black paper ⚫️ with red ❀️yellow πŸ’› and orange 🧑 chalk to represent the colours of fire πŸ”₯ we loved making lots of different marks on the paper using the different colours πŸ₯

We also became firefighters πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸš’πŸš’ and put out our own fireπŸ”₯ the tray was filled with yellow πŸ’› and red ❀️ rice and small world buildings🏠 with red ❀️yellowπŸ’› and orange 🧑 tissue paper inside to represent the fire πŸ”₯ our job was to use the spray bottles filled with water πŸ’¦ to put the fires outπŸ”₯

In the garden we had our own tea β˜•οΈ party πŸŽ‰ the table was set out for us to have our own feast🧺. There was chairsπŸͺ‘ and blue picnic Blanket πŸ’™ and lots of food for us to play with 🍰 πŸ₯– πŸ… we had lots of fun using our imagination πŸ’­
