For our summer topic, the theme in the 4-5 room is holidays. Over the past couple of weeks, the children have had great fun planning where they want to go on their holidays and have engaged in some great conversations about what they will be getting up to on their travels!
The children have also been busy making their own tickets and passports, set up their own airport and have even made their own plane which they have really enjoyed. The children also took part in discussions about the various ways they can travel on holiday.
Today we held our 2021 Graduations at Cothrom Òg. We are sad to say goodbye to Thomas, Emma Rose,and Coinneach. Wishing all three the best of luck for school.
The 0-2 group have come to the end of their Roban & Robag topic. The children have enjoyed listening to the story and loved the part when the crab gets Roban's tail. Here they all are finishing off the wall display.
The 0-2 group summer wall is coming along nicely. We've been making flowers, colouring in the ice-cream van, and the children have been making representations of themselves for their play park wall display.
The last couple weeks the 3-4 group have been working on their mini beast topic. They have had lots of fun exploring outside in the sun and looking for mini beasts with our magnifying glasses. They have been creating mini beasts for our display wall, they made some snails using egg cartons, they also took part in a sorting bug game which they all did great in. The children are still really enjoying this topic. The children put their bug hotel out and are waiting on some guests to visit.
We have now come to the end of our Old MacDonald topic for the children aged 4-5. We had great fun learning about what kinds of things happen on the farm and just how busy Old MacDonald was!
This week in the 3-4 Room we have had lots of fun creating our mini beasts wall. We have done lots of colouring, painting, scissor skills and getting messy with glitter which they enjoyed. We painted our bug hotel which we are going to put outside next week, the children cant wait to see what insects come to visit.
The 0-2 room are also busy with another topic ‘pàirc-chluiche anns an t-samhradh’ (summer in the park) they are creating a play park theme and have also got their own ice cream shop, which they love to role play in. they have all taken part in making homemade ice cream this week and they have gone down a treat.
The 0-2 room are reading the book ‘Roban agus Robag agus am Muir Mòr Gorm’ they are engaging well to the story and are enjoying learning about under the see animals. Becca’s dad very kindly got us some real life crabs, sea urchins and star fish. The children were very excited to see them and the crabs seemed to be the favourite.
In conjunction with our spring topic the 3-5 group have been learning a little about Old MacDonald and his farm. The children have engaged well with this topic and have been taking part in various activities, which have included some ploughing and feeding of the many animals on their pretend farm.
On our blog you can read about all the things we get up to in the nursery.
