Throughout August our Babies and Little Toddlers have been exploring Summer. They have enjoyed feeling the sand and water in the garden as well as getting messy with the paints to create their own artwork.

They have shared photos of their holidays, as part of parents and partners and have enjoyed looking at these as they were displayed in the room.  

EYFS Link: Expressive arts and design– Notices and is interested in the effects of making movements which leave marks. (16-26 months)

Our Big Toddlers and Pre-schooler’s have been talking about their communities and all the people that help us.

The children were asked what they would like to be when they grow up, lots of the children wanted to be builders. We created a fun space for the children to become builders, they put on their hi-vis jackets and used shaving foam, water, and sand to build their walls. The children worked together with their peers to ensure that these walls would not be blown down in the wind.

The children have also been busy exploring in the garden, looking after the plants and vegetables to see if they need more water. They have looked at the different parts of flowers using their core story How do Flowers Grow. The children have noticed that the tomatoes are now turning red and the cucumbers have little prickles on them. The children have enjoyed looking after their vegetables as well as tasting them.

EYFS Link: Can talk about some of the things they have observed such as plants, animals, natural and found objects. 30-50 months
