The babies have had great fun exploring the dark den and different light up sensory resources. They have been watching the fish swimming in the light tube too. They have also been exploring a variety of textures and showed interest when exploring the different messy play – paint, gloop, soil, shaving foam.
The children in preschool have been learning about the life cycle of a butterfly. They have watched them grow from tiny caterpillars into big caterpillars, then cocoons and watched them coming out of the cocoon as a butterfly. They spoke about the patterns on their wings, made observational pictures and gave them some fruit. All the butterflies were given names then after 3 days they were released in the garden.
Also in the preschool the children have been taking part in PE sessions, supporting their independence skills when dressing and undressing. They have been using their bodies to move in different ways and exploring the different movements they make.
We have been exploring music and movement within the nursery and using lots of different props and resources to create our dances. Older children have been putting on talent shows, creating their own costumes.
In the garden we have been planting seeds and talking about what the seeds need to help them grow. We are taking turns to water them and are excited to see what they will grow into. Also in the garden the children have been looking for insects, going on sensory walks and acting out our favourite stories – Bear Hunt and the Gruffalo.
