This month our topic has been transport. The babies have enjoyed playing out in the garden in the cars and on the small bikes, and we have also linked the topic into our sensory, messy and creative play. We have also been singing some transport rhymes during circle time, with our favourite songs so far: “The Wheels on the Bus” and “Row your Boat”, using musical instruments to make different sounds as we sing.
This month the Big Toddlers have been learning all about different zoo animals. We have been getting creative and having a go at painting pictures of our favourite zoo animals, as well as dipping the small world animals in the paint to create different pictures using their footprints. The children are also learning different fun-facts about the animals throughout this term, please keep an eye out for these on our parents board.
In Preschool this month we have been very busy in our Little Chef’s Cooking Club, creating lots of different treats to take home and share with our families. The children have been developing their confidence using the child-knifes safely to cut up the different ingredients, as well as using rolling pins and scissors to assist with their cooking. We are already looking forward to our next cooking club as the children have been discussing with Chef Carole what they would like to make.
