Throughout February, our babies and Toddlers have been learning about colours, they have been playing and exploring with colours in a variety of ways.

Their Core stories for this month have been Elmer and Elmer’s Colours by David McKee. The children have enjoyed joining in with the stories, as well as recognising lots of different colours.

The young children have explored colours, through paint, sticking and sensory trays filled with pasta and rice, cloud dough and gloop. The children enjoyed using the elephants to make coloured marks on their paper and they got creative by making their own colourful elephants from empty milk bottles.

Our Preschool children have been discovering space and learning all about the planets. Their Core story has been “Whatever Next” by Jill Murphy. The story tells of a little bear’s adventure to the moon.

The Preschool children having been making star biscuits in Cookery Club, recognising their name to make name rockets, making rockets using everyday recycling, retelling their core story with role play props, using space themed playdough mats with glittery space playdough and making moon and star pictures.

Fun fact: Jupiter is large enough for the earth to fit inside 1,000 times.
