What we've been up to...
St. Patrick's Day
The children celebrated St. Patrick’s Day be decorating their very own green clovers.
The opportunity gave the children the chance to engage in a variety of sensory experiences while developing their fine motor skills.
The children used a range of mark making tools to create their own interpretations of clovers.
The children enjoyed listening to the nursery team talk about St. Patrick’s Day which helped them to develop their vocabulary and communication skills.
Mother's Day crafts
For Mother’s Day, the children created beautiful cards for the special people that care for them.
Egg boxes were used to create pretty flower effects and the children were encouraged to mix the paints together to create different colours and to discover the different textures.
This fun learning opportunity enabled the children to talk about what they could see and feel, extending their vocabulary.
World Book Day
On World Book Day the children had lots of fun engaging in several story-related learning opportunities which encouraged them to use their imaginations and come up with their own interpretations.
The children were invited to create a giant caterpillar together as well as being able to create their own butterfly pictures while ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ story was read to them.
They also really enjoyed being able to make marks in ‘snow’ like the animals in ‘The Gruffalo’s Child’.
