We have all had a great week at Monkeymoos enjoying and getting ready for Easter ๐Ÿฃ. We have spoken about lots of different things this week including finishing lots of fun and exciting activities about our book ๐Ÿ“šof the month and county ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ of the month.

All our nurseries and children have got involved in lots of different activities and this week one of our curiosity days was “staying in touch with each other”. Are four nurseries will be writing โœ๏ธ some fun and exciting letters ๐Ÿ’Œ to each other so we can express how much fun ๐Ÿคช we are all having when at nursery and what exciting things they get up to. This can include some amazing art ๐ŸŽจ work which the children are proud ๐Ÿ‘ of and want to show off. Some pictures of any new things within their nursery ๐ŸŽ“, display boards , activities or tuff trays. We all enjoyed sending them via the post man ๐Ÿ“ฎ and waiting for the to arrive. We can not wait to read them next week and find out what we all getting up to.

We have had a Wonderful Wednesday packed with lots of fun activities like we taking the trip to the post office!!

Today in babies ๐Ÿ‘ถ we have had an amazing ๐Ÿคฉ day! 

We started off the morning getting creative decorating pictures to bring home ๐Ÿก! We loved ๐Ÿฅฐ using our motor skills to hold onto colouring pencils โœ๏ธ , crayons ๐Ÿ– and glue sticks. We enjoyed using our motor skills to hold onto the materials and draw across the paper ๐Ÿ“„ before sticking on feathers ๐Ÿชถ! 

We then went on a little trip to the post office ๐Ÿค to buy an envelope โœ‰๏ธ and a stamp. We enjoyed walking ๐Ÿšถโ€โ™‚๏ธ, looking ๐Ÿ‘€ at the birds ๐Ÿฆ… and posting the letter into the letterbox ๐Ÿ“ฌ .

Today in toddlers we have had a very creative day. 

In the creative room we have been using our fine motor skills to make lots of different marks and letters ๐Ÿ” in the sand ๐Ÿœfor our writing letter curiosity day with our hands , lollypop sticks and paintbrushes to see the different strokes they make .

We have also been super creative placing bubble wrap in two different ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’›coloured paints to create our Easter ๐Ÿฃ cards to go home to our families.

In the construction room we have been exploring how to Make big towers with the large scale bricks and the small bricks before knocking them down and starting over . We were also able to count the bricks and with some encouragement the colours we could see .

The preschoolers had a great day today taking part in our spring activities ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒฟ

In the tuff tray we decorated our own Easter eggs ๐Ÿฅš and Easter bunnies ๐Ÿฐ using shaving foam ๐Ÿช’ and different coloured paint ๐ŸŽจ we chose what colour paint we wanted to use and drizzled it over a paper plate covered in shaving foam ๐Ÿช’ we then used our hands to gently press our eggs ๐Ÿฅš or bunnies ๐Ÿฐ into the paper plate and watch what colourful ๐ŸŒˆ pattern it created๐Ÿ˜ƒ

We also enjoyed decorating our own butterflies ๐Ÿฆ‹ for our life cycle of a butterfly display board. We used lots of different coloured paint ๐ŸŽจ and cotton buds to create little patterns with lots of detail for our amazing butterflies ๐Ÿฆ‹ they look so good up on the display ๐Ÿ˜

Over the last few days we have all had lots of fun getting creative ๐ŸŽจ for our curiosity day today which is to stay in touch with another of our monkeymoos nurseries. We have enjoyed helping to decorate letters ๐Ÿ’Œand pictures to send in the post ๐Ÿ“ฎ.

A few of us then went on a little trip to the post office ๐Ÿค to send the letter ๐Ÿ’Œ. We walked ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿผvery calmly to the post office to buy a stamp before sticking it on the letter ๐Ÿ’Œ and placing it into the letter box ๐Ÿ“ซ

โœจHappy Tuesday!!โœจ

Today the babies have enjoyed being creative and making arks in different ways.

They enjoyed using a thin roller to paint on to paper. They dipped the roller in to different colour paints and moved it up and down on to the paper. They were very excited to see the paint on the paper. ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐ŸŽจ

They also enjoyed mark making in flour in their tray using stencils. They focused well and did some good turn taking. They had fun and engaged well with their peers and grown ups. ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘†

Out in the big room-

The children had a great time at the park before they had their lunch. They enjoyed the slide. Swings and the roundabout. They did so well to walk their and back and listened to their grown ups when they had to. ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿ›

Some of the children enjoyed a focused activity of learning sounds and actions for letters. They choose what letter they wanted to learn and followed their grown ups instructions. They did so well at this activity. ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿ”ก

Some of the toddlers and older babies enjoyed some garden time. They enjoyed riding on the bikes, playing bat and ball and playing with the shape sorter. They also enjoyed mark making on the chalk board. ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿšฒ๐ŸŽพ
