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!
Number recognition is part of the daily routine in the nursery. Some of the children in the 2-5 room took part in an activity where they were given a number between 1-10 and were to count out the correct number of blocks to match that number.
Tha a' chlann ag ionnsachadh an dath buidhe.
The children in the 0-2 room are being introduced to the colour 'buidhe' in many different forms.
The children have been taking part in lots of different activities whilst learning about winter.
They made their own snowflakes using glue and salt, and some "snow slime" for some sensory play.
They went for a walk on a frosty morning to find some puddles frozen over with ice, and found some ice to take into the nursery to see what would happen to it.
The children have been creating their own patterns using these cogs. Learning about pattern through play will help children understand number concepts.
