Goldilocks and The Three Bears sensory play
The nursery team combined the children’s love of sensory play with one of their favourite stories ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ to create an engaging experience.
It was a brilliant sensory opportunity for the younger children while also being a great way for the older ones to develop their early literacy skills.
The team set up the porridge scene from the story using porridge oats, bowls and spoons.
They encouraged the children to scoop, fill and feel the textures of the oats, while the story was read to them.
Learning the colours of the rainbow
This month the children have been learning all about different colours of the rainbow.
This learning opportunity provided the children with a variety of different areas of learning, from learning about the different colours of the rainbow to identifying and naming them.
The younger children also explored the texture and enjoyed the sensory experience of the cold paint.
The children had lots of fun getting messy!
Painting the sky
The children have been making the most of the recent lovely weather.
They used mirrors to look up at the sky and used a range of resources to create their own interpretations.
As well as being a creative experience for the children, it contributed to their understanding of the world around them.
Making flower dreamcatchers
The children had lots of fun making their own bread rolls.
The opportunity was provided in a COVID-secure way with each child being provided with their own piece of dough and all resources being sanitised before and after use.
The learning experience allowed the children to learn about the process of making bread while exploring the different textures.
The children also made marks in their dough to help them to identify their own.
