The children are becoming more aware or the importance of celebrations and customs in different people’s lives, today they have been learning about St Patrick’s Day. First of all they located Ireland on the map, and learned that the Shamrock is Ireland’s national flower. They then discovered that if they mixed yellow and blue paint they made green. The children also experimented with marbling to decorate individual shamrocks.
The babies are learning through their senses by exploring shaving foam. Click on any of the photos to enlarge.
The children planted Calendula and Marigold seeds in the polytunnel, and helped with the fertilising of the raised beds outside the nursery. We look forward to seeing our plants grow and learn about how to take care of them.
Kevin Morrison came for a very active ‘Stay & Play’ session. This not only helped to develop the children’s gross motor skills, but they are also learning that being active is healthy. We learnt some new games ‘Sheep Tig’ and ‘Banana Tig’ and played some old favourites ‘Tunnel Tig’ and ‘Traffic Lights’.
The children have experimented with felting wool in ReStore, and have made these adorable little sheep.
Our ‘Stay and Play’ session was a huge hit with the children. One of our parents came in to make fruit smoothies with us to tie in with our topic ‘Healthy Eating and Keeping Fit’. They were delicious!
This week the children have learnt about Chinese New Year. They made dragons, lanterns, fans, and tasted some Chinese food.
The children were actively involved in making their own pancakes for Shrove Tuesday. They were delicious!
