Another fabulous week at MonkeyMoos


We have had a wonderful week exploring lots of different activities around National Days. The children have been enjoying getting all cosy doing doing lots of Autumn activities such a leaf hunt, leaf painting and even using conkers to paint with! We have also celebrated Alpaca’s by having an Alpaca Day!! The children all got to make their very own Alpaca, the children also had a conversation with each other on what an Alpaca looked like and where they had seen them before.

And lastly we celebrated Strawberry Cream Pie Day, the children enjoyed making their very own Cream Pie by using play dough and shaving foam.

Strawberry cream pie Thursday!!

Today in babies ๐Ÿ‘ถ weโ€™ve had so much fun ๐Ÿคฉ celebrating ๐Ÿฅณ strawberry ๐Ÿ“ cream pie ๐Ÿฅง Day! 

We started the day getting creative ๐ŸŽจ painting the pips on strawberryโ€™s ๐Ÿ“. We used black ๐Ÿ–คpaint and earbuds to create small circles โญ•๏ธ on the strawberry ๐Ÿ“. We used our motor skills to dip the earbud into the paint ๐ŸŽจ and dab, dab onto the picture. 

We then explored a strawberry ๐Ÿ“ play dough tray. We created our very own strawberryโ€™s ๐Ÿ“ by squishing the play dough into a ball โšฝ๏ธ and sticking a green pipe cleaner into the top. 

We then explored a red โค๏ธ strawberry ๐Ÿ“ water ๐Ÿ’ฆ tray. We enjoyed splashing around in the water ๐Ÿ’ง and eating the strawberries๐Ÿ“. We used the red cups to scoop the water ๐Ÿ’ฆ and move it around the tray. We also used our motor skills to build towers using the red โค๏ธ bricks ๐Ÿงฑ.

The toddlers had lots of fun ๐Ÿคฉ today celebrating ๐Ÿฅณ strawberry ๐Ÿ“ cream pie ๐Ÿฅง day! 

In the creative room we made our own strawberry ๐Ÿ“ cream pie ๐Ÿฅง we used paper plates as our base and we used red shaving foam โค๏ธas our strawberry cream filling ๐Ÿ“ we used paint brushes ๐Ÿ–Œ to spread our strawberry cream across our paper plates, to finish off we carefully placed ๐Ÿ‘Œsome cut out strawberries on top ๐Ÿ“

We got creative and decorated our own strawberries ๐Ÿ“ using green ๐Ÿ’šand red paint โค๏ธ for this we used cotton buds to carefully dab the paint ๐ŸŽจ across our strawberries ๐Ÿ“ we loved making little dots on our strawberries and seeing how the turned out ๐Ÿ˜

We got messy in our own strawberry filled water tray, our tray was filled with redโค๏ธ water ๐Ÿ’ฆ and lots of strawberries for us to explore ๐Ÿ“we loved splashing around in the tray and feeling all the different textures. We spoke about the colours we could see ๐Ÿ‘€ and what the strawberries felt like ๐Ÿ“.

Preschool have been exploring Strawberry ๐Ÿ“ cream pie day. We have been using fine motor skills to roll and cut our strawberry ๐Ÿ“ play dough. We are also creating our own strawberry ๐Ÿ“ cream pie by mixing ๐Ÿฅฃ๐Ÿฅ„ and making our creation to eat and to top off our fantastic experience we will be creating our own strawberry ๐Ÿ“ smoothie. So much fun ๐Ÿคฉ and excitement for today full of lots of yummy ๐Ÿ˜‹ fruit and full of smell ๐Ÿ‘ƒ and taste ๐Ÿ‘…. Their imagination ๐Ÿ’ญ has no limits today.

Today is also Alpaca day so in the writing area were learnt some fun facts about Alpacaโ€™s. Some of the grown ups and children have seen Alpacaโ€™s at a farm and enjoyed stroking them. ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฆ™One of our preschoolers came in to baby room and read the babies a story. Babies really liked this and did well to listen for a short amount of time. They enjoyed pointing to the pictures and babbling back to the preschooler. As well as having a preschooler read a story they also enjoyed looking through a variety of books by themselves. ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘ฆ

Babies have also enjoyed going off to play with the toys we had set up today. They enjoyed building with the duplo bricks and playing with the small people. ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿงฑ

Today when the preschoolers went on a walk before lunch they enjoyed going on a nature walk to find autumn things. They found conkers, conker shells, sticks and different colour leafs. ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿ

The toddlers enjoyed painting in the tuff tray activity. They painted an autumn painting using autumn colours of yellow, brown, red and orange. They used a paint brush and dipped it in to the paint and mark made on the paper. They focused well and had lots of fun. ๐ŸŽจ ๐Ÿ‚
