The 3-5 group have started a new topic on mini beasts they have had lots of fun exploring outside to see what mini beasts they could find, they found lots of wiggly worms. They also made some ladybug flapjacks which all the children really enjoyed taking part in.
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 nursery enjoy exploring their outdoor environment while developing their gross motor skills and coordination.
What better way to learn about geamhradh than to get fully immersed in the great outdoors, exploring and promoting gross motor skills.
As we are learning about winter, we have made an "ice rink" outside out of some plastic and washing up liquid.
The children were making the most of the lovely calm day and chose to have snack outside. They spent their afternoon transporting the bark from one area to another an made up their own game of 'Crocodile Tig'.
We would like to thank the Coop members for choosing Cothrom Òg as their Local Community Fund cause. We have received an amazing £10,394.29 which will go a long way towards extending our outdoor play area.
Work will commence in February based on feedback from children and parents. We are hoping that members of our community will be able to volunteer some time and experience - please get in touch if you'd like to be a part. You'll be able to keep up to date on the works here on our blog.
On our blog you can read about all the things we get up to in the nursery.
