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.
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 have been creating their own patterns using these cogs. Learning about pattern through play will help children understand number concepts.
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.
We have been very busy the last couple of weeks preparing for Christmas. We have been participating in lots of arts and crafts activities as well as learning the nativity story.
Everyone looked very festive and cosy today while we participated in Christmas Jumper Day. We will be donating any money raised to save the Children.
Mrs NicDhòmhnaill rounded off our week of stories with a lovely interactive story.
The staff and children of Cothrom Òg would like to thank everyone who took time out to come and read us a story over the past week. We have all thoroughly enjoyed hearing all the different stories from different people. We look forward to seeing you again on World Book Day in March!
On our blog you can read about all the things we get up to in the nursery.
