This month we have made the most of the beautiful weather and spent lots of time in the garden exploring the larger equipment such as the slide, swing and the caterpillar tunnel, which we all loved crawling in and out of. The Babies have really enjoyed exploring the water and floating ducks in the garden. Some children started to line the ducks up taking them in and out of the water. The Baby room enjoyed science week. We looked at reflective objects which made patterns on the wall, as well as exploring different colour and texture sensory.
This moth the Little Toddlers have loved getting creative and finding different resources to paint with. We really enjoyed using kitchen roll tubes cut in half and manipulating them into shapes to print with. During outdoor play we have enjoyed taking our messy activities outside, where one of our favourite activities was exploring the flour!
The Big Toddlers have also been investigating during our science experiments. We were fascinated by the experiment where we filled rubber gloves with water and food colouring. We decided to also add some different objects and freeze our gloves and hang them on our water wall outside! The children were keen to explore the difference in the gloves after they were frozen. We have also been taking part in creating our beautiful Spring display, using different mark making techniques including painting our own hands to creative Spring flowers.
This month the children had a Vet role play area. The children have been very interested the variety of activities we have had based around animals, and particularly enjoyed looking our Blackberries pets and pretending to take them on walks.
We also celebrated National science week and did a variety of different science experiments. The children’s favourite experiment one was the exploding volcano. The children all took turns in pouring bicarbonate soda, vinegar and food colouring into their bottles and looking to see what happens. It was so exciting watching the volcano erupt!
