The boys are outside, enjoying some time to investigate the amount of water that has gathered in the tyres. One found a star fish in the sand area and took it up to put it in the water, telling us "it needs water to survive". Also ‘double trouble’ gathering water for their mud pies! Our poor mud kitchen took a bit of a battering in the recent gales, but this doesn’t stop us having some messy outdoor 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.
The Daliburgh Thrift Shop very kindly donated a play kitchen for the children in the baby room. The children have enjoyed role playing making tea and lunch, and even doing the dishes!
December has been a very busy month. The children in the baby room have been making snowflakes, stockings, snowmen, stars, and reindeer for our Christmas display.
They also made reindeer dust and very cute Christmas cards for their mams and dads.
They all had loads of fun at our Christmas party dancing all day long, enjoyed some party food and goodies, and they all looked their best in their lovely outfits.
The children in the baby room have been busy making some spooky Halloween decorations.
They also enjoyed sensory play by exploring lots of different textures, such as spaghetti worms, beasties in jelly, and the inside of a pumpkin.
The children in the baby room have been learning a little about autumn. They investigated different textured leaves and they also made leaf biscuits and hedgehog cakes.
Baking is a great activity to develop early numeracy skills.
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 made some delicious pizzas and smoothies for snack. They really enjoyed making and tasting them.
Once a baby's vision begins to develop, they love to look at faces. Mirrors help babies learn self-awareness. Our baby is playing peek-a-boo with himself.
On our blog you can read about all the things we get up to in the nursery.
