Here’s how to get in touch
LEMON SENSORY PLAY
Potato masher printing
This week in our garden we have been focusing on climbing,
using our climbing frame to climb up and down and
the barrel to climb over and through.
Climbing helps to develop children's self confidence, hand eye coordination, flexibility, physical and mental strength as well as their spatial awareness.
This week the children had an opportunity to practice spreading the butter on their cracker for snack.
Spreading is very tricky and messy , but the children love to be involved in the daily activities of the nursery and snack preparation is no exception.
WORLD BOOK DAY
This year world book day has been a little different.
We have been reading some of our favourite books in the story corner.
One particular book Sports Day with Peppa Pig.
Sparked lots of conversation about WHY George was crying.
Children related this too times when they had hurt themselves , telling the adult what made them cry and who or what helped them to feel better.
One of the younger children carefully tried to wipe George's tears away on the page saying Ahh''
Following on from the children's fascination of puddles last week. The children made their own fetching watering and pouring into the tuff tray. Some children worked out that the more water they added the better the splash when stamping in the water. Their was lots of turn taking to use the water tap, although not always easy to wait when you are super excited.

'WE LOVE MESSY PLAY'
The children have been enjoying playing with shaving foam.
Messy play helps develop early fine motor skills,
strengthens hand and finger muscles,
Enhances children's hand eye co-ordination.
This week the Nursery has been focusing on balancing blocks.
Block play offers an open ended, creative and valuable play and learning experience.
Communication and language
