Fun at Monkeymoos!!!


At monkeymoos we have been really enjoying the sunshine at last and been spending lots of time outside. We have made sure we are safe and careful by wearing suncream to protect out skin from the sunshine and been stopping for regular breaks to make sure we stay hydrated!!

This week we have followed the childrens interests and had a day exploring and learning all about DINOSAURS! We have thoughts about the life cycle and where they came from. We have learnt about what happened to them and why they are not walking with us now.

The children have enjoyed doing lots of cooking this week, some have made cakes, biscuits, got really involved with helping the chef peel the potatoes ready for tea and some of use even got the chance to enjoy the outside with a bbq. YUMMY!!!!!!

All our nurseries have been giving their children the opportunities to join in with our cultural capital week and explore with some fun and exciting ideas which they may not get the opportunity to experience with their families. For example In worthing we took to the skies in monkey Jets and went on a plane to visit some other countries. Winklebury went to the cinema and choice their favourite film to watch and enjoyed eating yummy pop corn and treats.

Today in babies ๐Ÿ‘ถ weโ€™ve had a fantastic ๐Ÿคฉ day! 

We started off the morning visiting our MonkeyMoos Diner ๐Ÿด. We had so much fun ๐Ÿคฉ looking at the menu and seeing what we could have for snack! We all chose melon ๐Ÿˆ and breadsticks with some milk ๐Ÿฅ›! We waited patiently for our food to arrive and watched our milk ๐Ÿฅ› be poured into our cups! We then enjoyed eating ๐Ÿฝ our snack, drinking our milk ๐Ÿฅ› and having a chat ๐Ÿ’ฌ with each other! 

We then went onto making chocolate ๐Ÿซ chip cookies ๐Ÿช to bring home ๐Ÿก later! We loved ๐Ÿฅฐ spooning ๐Ÿฅ„ the mixture into a big bowl ๐Ÿฅฃ , we then poured in some water ๐Ÿ’ฆ and mixed the ingredients together! Once the mixture had formed a dough we used our hands ๐Ÿ™Œ to roll some of the dough into balls โšฝ๏ธ and placed them onto the baking tray. Once they where on the tray we used our hands ๐Ÿ™Œ to flatten them and then we waited patiently for them to cook. We canโ€™t wait to bring them home ๐Ÿก to eat later โฐ! They look ๐Ÿ‘€ very yummy ๐Ÿ˜‹!

Today in toddlers we have had a super day exploring the different activities in our creative room .
