What a fantastic week it has been


This weeks national day was Earth Day. we spoke and learnt lots of interesting facts about our earth and the children enjoyed taking part in all our fun Earth day activities.

✨Happy Tuesday!!✨

Today in the baby room πŸ‘Ά we’ve had lots of fun!. 

This morning we played in a dinosaur and mud tray!!πŸ¦•the babies loved using the dinosaurs to stomp in the mud! We were roaring to each other and babbling away to our grown up!. 

Later on we used the dinosaurs and did a painting activity!🎨 the babies placed the dinosaurs πŸ¦– into the paint pallet and then started to stamp on their paper!πŸ“„ the babies loved stomping the dinosaurs onto their pieces of paper and looking at the patterns and shapes made on the paper!. 

We also enjoyed playing with the duplo blocks and using them to build towers! Just look at all the fun we’ve had today!!. 

Out in the big room- 

This morning for the toddlers group time they enjoyed playing in our messy tray in the messy room. The tray was based on Earth day. They had to scoop up all the thin gas that were bad and place them in to the bowls to make out earth clean. They did so well scooping up things using a small spoon. πŸ‘¦πŸ‘§πŸ₯„πŸŒ

The children enjoyed building an obstacle course with their friends and grown ups and then we made it in to a fun game of building it bigger and taking it in turns to walk along the bricks. We put our arms out to balance and then we jumped off at the end. We had lots of fun. πŸ‘¦πŸ‘§πŸ§±

This morning for pre-school group time they practised their numbers. They had to tell their grown up what number was on the card and then place it on to the bingo board. They did so well at correctly knowing each number and putting it in the board. πŸ‘¦πŸ‘§πŸ”’

They also have enjoyed writing and practising to write their names. They used a different colour pencil of their choose and copied their name labels. They sat well and focused for a long amount of time. πŸ”‘πŸ‘¦πŸ‘§βœοΈπŸ–

Food collages!🍞 Using all different types of dry foods, we crushed them up to make food collages! We had spaghetti, breadsticks, wheatabix and ice cream cones! So creative!🎨

When the children headed inside, they wanted to make and decorate some homes for the ladybugs to live in!🐞 Using different shaped and sized logs, the children used lots of different colours to decorate the logs and make the ladybuygs houses cosy and colourful!🏠

πŸ’¨Parachute✨ We had garden time this morning flying the parachute and using it in different ways such as getting the MonkeyMooers to hide underneath it and flying it or putting the ball on top of it and trying to make it go as high as possible it was so much fun and the were filled with excitement and joyful cheersπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜†

This morning in babies we had lots of fun in the garden🌿. We played 3 Billy goats gruff whilst stomping over the trolls bridgeπŸŒ‰ and practiced our balancing skills on the stepping stones. We used our gross motor skills to do lots of running and burn out energy before sitting down for lunch🍝.

Today We have been enjoying our baby rainbow tray🌈 exploring the different textures of the felt and the ribbons, as well as making lots of lovely music with the ribbon bells✨.

Happy Thursday!!

Today in babies πŸ‘Ά we’ve had a brilliant 🀩 day! 

We started the morning getting creative 🎨 starting to make our Easter 🐣 cards! We absolutely loved πŸ₯° having our hands πŸ™Œ painted 🎨 yellow 🟨 before printing them onto the paper πŸ“„. We thought πŸ’­ it was very funny πŸ˜„ when we had our hand 🀚 painted πŸ–Œ and laughed πŸ˜‚. 

We then went onto exploring our tuff tray. We had fun 🀩 making our own salt πŸ§‚ dough! We loved πŸ₯° using our hands πŸ™Œ and motor skills to hold onto a wooden spoon πŸ₯„ and mix the flour, salt πŸ§‚ and water πŸ’¦ together. We then used our hands πŸ™Œ to knead the dough before using the tools to roll it out and cut it!

Today in toddlers and preschool we have had a super day . 

In the creative room we have been using our fine motor skills and hands πŸ™ŒπŸΌ to make marks in the flour in the tuff tray . We got super messy and was able to make different marks , wiggly lines and also start recognising letters πŸ”‘ in our names.

On the creative table we have been making Easter eggs πŸ₯š with lots of stickers and rolling different coloured paints to make them super unique.

We’ve also had so much fun in the garden playing different games like what’s the time mr wolf 🐺 and also hide and seek 🫣which we super enjoyed . Our teachers also got the bubbles 🫧 out and we ran around the garden trying to pop them .
