Babies 2 Room
Some of the children have been learning how to look after babies. We used the dolls that we have in our role play area ,as well as the children’s own spoons, plates, cups and bottles that they use in nursery, so that they could feed their children using “real life” equipment. We also bathed the dolls, and got them dressed and even put some nappies on them!
Our Younger baby room has had some new starters this month. They have enjoyed exploring their new surroundings and making some new friends with the other children and adults.
The two new children really enjoyed exploring our garden area, moving around our Astro turf and feeling the different textures.
The toddler children take part in Rhythm time every week. They have great fun learning about different pitches, tones and rhythms. They use lots of different instruments to make a range of sounds, as well as following on from beats and songs. They also use lots of visual aids such as cuddly toys and parachutes.
Pre School children went outside to explore the snow. They all wrapped up warm and looked at the marks they could make with their hands and feet. They discussed the changes that they saw and then collected some snow to bring inside to explore how they could make it melt!
The Pre-School children enjoyed a Trip to Clent Hills where they went on a dinosaur hunt! The children walked to the top of the hill and pretended they were dinosaurs and searched for footprints. We then went on a dinosaur egg hunt in the natural play area, finishing off our day with a lovely picnic.
The Toddler children enjoyed their first Yoga session! The theme was all about the Beach. The Children took part in a yoga story where they had to move in different ways to act out the parts of the story. They learnt all about balance and stretching as well!
Exploring Textures and Colour
The babies enjoyed exploring texture and colour by creating different pictures using Vegetables. The children also created their own marks and are beginning to explore mark making and fine motor skills!
The Babies enjoyed a visit from the Animal Lady. She brought lots of different animals and some of the children were brave enough to hold or stroke them!
Letters to Santa
The Toddler children have enjoyed writing their letters to Santa. They also practiced their fine motor skills using sellotape and scissors to wrap presents.
Pre-School have been exploring different building structures.
All of the children came dressed as their favourite superhero to raise money for the Neo-Natal Unit at Russells Hall Hospital.
Christmas Place Mats
Babies 1 enjoyed making their own Christmas place mats. They explored different colours and textures, moving their fingers around in the paint to create different marks on their card.
