Throughout the nursery we participated in a range of activities throughout each room such as showing off our best dance moves face painting and exploring red themed tuff trays.
We also celebrated by dressing up in either carnival themed wear or in the colour red both children and staff!
We have all had a fun filled day full of lots of exciting activities, just in time for the weekend
We hope you all have a fantastic weekend and we will see you next week.
This week in Snowy Owls Scarning we are focusing on the topic of “The start of spring!”.
This afternoon we have been enjoying the spring weather and spent some time out in the mud kitchen!
Snowy Owls really enjoyed spending time outside and using the natural resources of twigs, leaves and stones to make their creations such as chocolate cakes, cups of tea and even some mashed potato.
Whilst outside we were also very lucky to find some spring mini beasts, a ladybird and a baby snail. This was a fantastic opportunity for Snowy Owls to discuss what they had found and show care and concern towards living things.
This open ended activity also gave Snowy Owls the chance to enhance their imaginative skills alongside each other and opportunities to share and turn take with different resources.
As the weather is starting to become warmer we will be making great use of the mud kitchen over the coming weeks
Today in Barn Owls as part of our Forest school style activities, we have been exploring what sounds we can hear whilst outside. This is a good way to promote the use of our listening skills by focusing on the sounds we hear.
During our time we could hear a aeroplane , bird and wind. we have all individually drawn what we could hear from an aeroplane ‘my aeroplane has arms ‘ to wind ‘ wind is blue like the sky ‘ forming conversations with our peers .
With our topic being spring we then went on to talking about what we might hear during these next few weeks , Barn Owls suggested we could hear ‘ the Easter bunny ‘ and ‘baby chicks ‘ .
Today in barn owls we have been discussing the first aid training our staff team have been attending. We saw this as the perfect opportunity for some in the moment planning and have enjoyed role playing our very own first aid course and sharing our first aid experience with the children. We demonstrated all the different tools in the drs kit then we practised bandaging our friends arms!
Today in barn owls we have enjoyed tuning into the natural environment around us and listening to the sounds they can hear we used our checklists and listening ears to see what kind of sounds we could hear, barn owls said
“I can hear children playing “
“I can hear cars”
”I can hear the wind “ and
“I can hear birds”!
Barn owls then checked off all of the things they could hear! We discussed the different sounds we could hear and linked to our Phonics we have been practising for example some barn owls recognised that ‘car’ begins with ‘C/K’ and sang our Phonics song for this letter! Well done barn owls
