The children in the nursery enjoy exploring their outdoor environment while developing their gross motor skills and coordination.
Sensory play is an important part of early childhood development as children use their senses to explore the world around them.
The children in the baby room were being introduced to the colour blue. They participated in various creative and engaging activities to support their learning.
The children in the baby room made some delicious pizzas and smoothies for snack. They really enjoyed making and tasting them.
We started our new topic 'Spring' off with a visit from some pet lambs. The children got to learn a little about how to take care of lambs when they have been orphaned and got the opportunity to feed them. We will track the progress of the lambs as they grow.
The children attended a felting session at ReStore with Rebecca Cotton. They made their own sheep using different coloured wool.
The children enjoyed trying something different this Friday, by learning about stick weaving from Mary Carol. We also made postcards that will be sent to Malta as part of Mary Carol's art project!
As part of our 'People in the Community' topic in the 2-5 room, the children spent some time being 'Firemen/women'. As part of this activity we discussed the importance of fire safety and the importance of Firemen/women in the community.
In this activity the children were learning about chemical reactions. They made a 'volcano' using edible ingredients, although the verdict was not a tasty one.
On our blog you can read about all the things we get up to in the nursery.
