Emily from Wild Things Uist visited us today to lead outdoor play. When the weather got a bit too rough we played inside instead.
Emily brought in fish boxes that we used to make a space ship, a plane, and a ferry. We went to Alien Pizza Land in our space ship, and to Barra via Madeira on the ferry.
Wearing our hi-viz jackets and helmets we pretended we were builders as part of our new construction topic. One of the most important parts of being a builder is to have a tea break!
We also played with loose parts to independently exercise our imagination
We celebrated Chinese new Year by making our own chicken and vegetable Chow Mein with prawn crackers.
Interactive and "messy" play is a great way for young children to develop their motor skills and playing with others develops important social skills such as co-operation and sharing.
We are learning about shapes and colours by playing with different blocks. It takes lots of concentration, but it's also fun!
The children in the baby room have been making foot print penguin and hand print robins for their winter topic.
They also celebrated Robert Burns and got to try haggis, neeps, and tatties - as well as a little bit of Irn Bru! Kenny very kindly came in and played the pipes for us too.
On our blog you can read about all the things we get up to in the nursery.
