During the month of April, we have been exploring various sensory trays relating to bugs and the environment. The children have been on bug hunts in the garden and have participated in our garden club planting their seeds to grow and look after.
Spring is such a wonderful time of year. Our children have been busy exploring the world around them springing into life after the winter.
Our babies and toddlers have been exploring sensory water trays with flower petals and during our Mother’s Day stay and play used flowers as a means of mark making.
During the month of February, our younger children have been exploring the colour red using a variety of different media. We have been enjoying the Nursery rhyme The Queen of hearts.
Mixing, stirring and pouring were all part of the children’s play in our mud kitchen. Mud Play is important for children to develop and practice their fine and gross motor skills, increase awareness of their senses, particularly touch, improve hand/ eye coordination and develop their social and emotional skills, including taking turns and leading/following directions.
We have been getting in the festive spirit ready for Christmas, we held our annual Christmas party with a variety of activities for the children and parents to participate in. Santa visited our nursery and the children all were given a present.
