Another amazing week at MonkeyMoos!!


We have had a wonderful week exploring lots of different activities around National Days. The children have been enjoying Jeans for Genes’s day, the children all wore their favourite jeans to nursery and they got to learn all about different genes that we are born with!

We have also celebrated ‘Talk like a pirate day’!! The children all got to dress up and pretend they were a pirates for the day. The children also took part in a variety of different activities such as walking the plank, making their very own treasure maps and then going for a walking around the community looking for different shaped treasure.

And lastly we enjoyed celebrating make a hat day, the children were able to make different types of hats using lots of different resources!!

Today the children had so much fun playing in our pirate themed boat. They all took it in turns to play in it and told their grown ups they were going to the sea to find all the treasure. πŸ‘¦πŸ‘§πŸ΄β€β˜ οΈπŸ›Ά

In our tuff tray we had a finding treasure activity. The treasure was hidden in soft flour and the children used their hands to find all the treasure. πŸ‘¦πŸ‘§πŸ’πŸ‘‘

This morning the children painted a cardboard box to make a treasure chest. They used brown paint and all did so well to take it in turns to paint. They did this as a group activity and it was lovely watching all children work together. πŸ‘¦πŸ‘§πŸ“¦πŸŽ¨

Babies have been super busy today as well.

They have joined in with finding treasure in the tuff tray in the main room. Once found they showed it to their grown ups. πŸ‘ΆπŸ‘©πŸ’

They also had lots of fun playing in their own tray with shaving foam. They really enjoyed putting their hands in the foam and squeezing it. Plenty of mess today. πŸ‘ΆπŸ–

Today in babies πŸ‘Ά we have had so much fun 🀩 celebrating πŸ₯³ Romanian day πŸ‡·πŸ‡΄!  

We started the day getting creative sticking the coloured tissue paper blocks to the empty flag πŸ‡·πŸ‡΄. We used our motor skills to spread the glue all over the flag before sticking on the correct coloured Tissue paper πŸ’™πŸ’›β€οΈ. 

We then painted leaves πŸƒ on a tree 🌲 using the Romanian flag πŸ‡·πŸ‡΄ colours and a paint sponge. We used blue πŸ’™ yellow πŸ’› and red ❀️ paint 🎨. We used our motor skills to push the sponge 🧽 into the paint 🎨 and then dab it all over the tree 🌲 branches.

The toddlers had lots of fun today celebrating πŸ₯³ national Romania πŸ‡·πŸ‡΄ day today! 

This morning we decorated our own cupcakes 🧁 with the Romanian flag πŸ‡·πŸ‡΄ we all sat down together and chose the cupcake we were going to decorate and then used a spoon to scoop πŸ₯„ either the blue πŸ’™ yellow πŸ’› or red ❀️ icing on to the top of our cupcake 🧁 afterwards we tasted them they were very yummy πŸ˜‹ 

We also decorated our own Romanian flag πŸ‡·πŸ‡΄ using glue and different coloured rice πŸ™ we had blue rice πŸ’™, yellow riceπŸ’› and red rice ❀️ to represent the colours of the flag. We used our hands πŸ™ŒπŸΌ to sprinkle the rice over the top of our flags to turn them into the Romanian flag πŸ‡·πŸ‡΄ we can’t wait to show you what we have made πŸ˜ƒ

Today in preschool we had so much fun 🀩 celebrating national πŸ₯³ Romania πŸ‡·πŸ‡΄ day.

Using our fine motor skills we have been playing with the play dough. We used our hands πŸ™ŒπŸΎ to match the coloured play dough to the different parts of the Romanian flag πŸ‡·πŸ‡΄.

Happy Monday, what a start to the week we’ve had!😁

We put on our jumpers and coats to get ready for the garden, and then raced out the door, eager to ride all the bikesπŸš΄πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ We raced each other up and down the garden, we had to know how fast we could go! Some of the children took it in turns to gently push each other around on the bikes, some children went to the shopsπŸͺ whilst other children when to the beach!πŸ–

In the messy tray we explored all the different things we could do with oats! We filled bowls to the top and used spoons to mixπŸ₯£ We make yummy cupcakes in the baking tray🧁 and sang It’s raining it’s pouring as we sprinkled the oats from our fingers🌧
