We have had a very busy first week back in the nursery. Some of the children were showing an interest in sealife, so we have been learning about different creatures that live under the sea. We have read a variety of sea themed books and looked up videos to find information on sharks, whales, dolphins and more!
In the art area, we have made our own fish designs, printing and playing with sea creatures and shells in the water tray.
The children have also been engaging in roleplay, dressing up as pirates and building boats in the construction.
For snack, the children asked to make biscuits and pasta, so we have been busy cooking, baking and practicing washing the dishes after. We have also been experimenting while making our snow dough, using different types of conditioner to see what colours and scents we can create. The children have also been doing good turn taking while playing board games, such as a pirate memory game and a colour matching game. In the garden, we have been enjoying the bikes and playing red light, green light.
The children have also been enjoying dressing up and dancing. Our favourite songs of the moment being Let it Go and the Floor is Lava.Finally, we would like to welcome our new friends that have joined the nursery this week and who are settling in very well, as a well as our two new Early Years Practitoners, Stephanie and Lucy.
