What a lovely week it has been!


We have had a wonderful week, with many National Days explored. The children have been exploring Lions and their natural habitats. Who can roar like a lion?? We have also taken a trip to Nimibia. HungryMoose provided some lovely desserts which you would get when you visit Nimibia. We have also been tasting some delicious rice pudding for rice pudding day, delicious!

Today we celebrated the King of the jungle 🦁 on the 10th of August each year it is world lion day, this is to show awareness of the decline of the lion population. We ROARRR -ed the day away in the only way we know how… With a lion based sensory tuff tray where our Monkey Mooers liked mixing the coloured rice and construction blocks together to give Leo the lion the funniest mane!🦁

10 little ducks went swimming one day πŸ’¦ ….. The children enjoyed singing along and also learning the common and much loved nursery rhyme, we extended the song to 10 to include all the ducks in our water tray. The children scooped the ducks in to the net and splashed in the water.🐀

Barnyard Mania! πŸ„Our farmers took to the farm themed tray to help the farmers round up all his animals that got stuck in the mud by using the different trackers to pick them up and drive them safely back to the farm!🚜

Pasta Smash!πŸ›  Our children were tasked on finding a tool of their choice and seeing how much pasta and spaghetti they could smash up within five minutes. The Monkey Mooers took it in turns to hit the pasta into tiny pieces until they were all gone!πŸ”§

Magic Movements!πŸƒTo finish off this busy day, the children took part in Activate where they listened to Sticky Kids and followed the instructions to yoga, dancing and practicing on their stretching, balancing and running skills!🚢🎢

What a wonderful Wednesday! 

Today in babies πŸ‘Ά we had so much fun 🀩celebrating Namibia πŸ‡³πŸ‡¦ day.

We got creative by sticking blue πŸ’™ red ❀️ and green πŸ’štissue paper to paper to create Namibia πŸ‡³πŸ‡¦ flags. We also used coloured paint 🎨 and lollipop sticks. 

Then we explored an African safari πŸ¦“πŸ¦’πŸ¦themed tuff tray. We had lots of fun 🀩 playing in the rice crispy sand and coco powder mud. We loved taking the animals πŸ¦›πŸŠ to the waterhole and making them all muddy. After this we rescued πŸ›Ÿ traped animals πŸ…πŸ¦’ by using our motor skills to pull tape off them. We also enjoyed playing with ice 🧊 cubes that had animals in πŸ…. We enjoyed watching them melt letting the animals out.

Today the preschool and toddlers had so much fun🀩 they started off the morning by doing an activity! The activity was painting the flag of the country Namibia πŸ‡³πŸ‡¦ using colouring pencils ✏️, feathers πŸͺΆ , different coloured paint 🎨, glitter ✨ and much more!

Then they also did a tuff tray which was based on a safari theme! It was made out of Astro turf and on the Astro turf were different animals πŸΌπŸ¨πŸ΅πŸ¦πŸ¦“πŸ†πŸ¦œπŸ¦’ and around the animals was rice crispies which the children used to dig their hands in and feel the texture of the rice crispies as well as eating them! 

On top of all that they got to ride a safari truck πŸ›» across some wooden blocks which was set out as a path so you could take the safari truck πŸ›» across the path to see all the different animals πŸ¦πŸ¦“πŸ¦’πŸ¦œπŸ†πŸΌπŸ¨πŸ΅ that were in the safari! Then we came outside and played on the slide πŸ› as well as with the tyres πŸ›ž and the dinosaurs πŸ¦• going roarrrrr! 

Finally we also played in the mud kitchen β²πŸ‘©β€πŸ³ and made some yummy 🀀 cupcakes 🧁 and some yummy donuts 🍩. We also got to see the guinea pig and we got to watch her run πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ around her crate and eat some yummy πŸ˜‹ vegetablesπŸ₯•πŸ₯¦
