Throughout February, our Toddlers have been exploring Colours. Their Core Story has been Elmer by David McKee. They explored the metallic paint, when making their artwork to celebrate Chinese New Year.
Throughout January, we have all been exploring the Arctic. Our Core Story has been Snow Bear by Piers Harper.
We have been getting in the festive spirit, ready for Christmas, we helped to choose the Nursery Christmas tree from Golding’s Nursery.
This month we have had lots of fun exploring dinosaurs. We have been exploring dinosaurs in a variety of sensory trays, such as swamps, cereals, gloop and paints. This supports children’s fine and gross motor skills and their sensory skills.
We have been on Nature Walks and collected leaves, acorns and pine cones and we have used them to support our number recognition and counting skills, as well as extending our Mathematical language by talking about the sizes and shapes of pumpkins. Our Core story this month has been The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson. We even made our very own Gruffalo Crumble in our Little Chef’s Cookery Club. Please ask us for the recipe if you would like to have a go at home.
