As spring πŸ’ is here we have been spending a lot of our time looking at farms 🚜 and exploring all the new baby animals πŸ‘ who could appear on them. The children have loved getting involved and telling all the Staff and their friends if and when they have visited a farm and what animals they meet. We have also all been enjoying and getting involved in growing our own Cress 🌱 and then making our very own yummy sandwiches. the children enjoyed that s much we thought we would grown our very own Plants and Flowers 🌸 ready to brighten up our gardens in the summer 🌞.

We have had a fun packed day at nursery today, getting involved in lots of fun and exciting activities. Have a look at some of the things we have been up to?

We have used our fine motor skills πŸ‘πŸ»to make our egg πŸ₯š and cress sandwiches πŸ₯ͺ. We used our fingers to break the shells 🐚 of the eggs. We then broke down the eggs πŸ₯š with a fork 🍴. We then added mayonnaise to the mixture. We then added cress to the mixture and mixed it all together using forks 🍴. We then added the πŸ₯š and cress mixture to bread 🍞 to create our very own sandwiches πŸ₯ͺ.

We had lots of fun 🀩 creating our pizza’s πŸ•. We used paper πŸ“ plates and had the choice of what colour we wanted to use for the pizza πŸ• base. We used our fine motor skills to paint 🎨 our pizza base. We then used our fine motor skills πŸ‘πŸ»to add tissue paper to represent the different pizza πŸ• toppings. Our pizzas πŸ• looked yummy.

We have taken part in a Elma the elephant 🐘 tuff tray. In the tray we had an outline of Elma the elephant 🐘 and we used coloured blocks 🧱, rainbow 🌈 blocks and colourful material. We used our fine motor skills πŸ™ŒπŸΌ to place the different objects into Elma the elephant 🐘 to make her colourful like the story πŸ“–. A adult πŸ‘΅ then read us the story πŸ“˜of Elma the elephant 🐘.
