Throughout December, our children have been participating in lots of Festive activities. Their Core stories for this month have been That’s not my snowman by Fiona Watt for the Under Two’s and The night before Christmas by Clement C Moore for the Over Two’ The children have been captivated by the magic of Christmas at story time.
In November, our Under Two’s have been exploring Dinosaurs. They have been busy playing with and exploring the dinosaurs in a variety of ways; they have created patterned pictures with dinosaur stamps, used the toy animals to create marks and prints on foil and role played with the dinosaurs in cereal based sensory play trays.
During October our Under Two’s have been learning about wild animals. They have been busy playing with and exploring the animals in a variety of ways; they have created patterned collages with animal prints, used the toy animals to create marks and prints on foil and role played with the animals in sensory based play trays.
We are moving forward into 2020 with our new Learning ethos Forest Schools. Forest schools give freedom, space and natural resources for children to plan and promote their own physical development through play and to allow children the time and space to develop skills, interest and understanding through a range of activities which provide practical, hands-on experiences in a natural environment both indoors and out.
