This week we have been learning about ourselves! We learned the body parts, made a collage of our faces, talked about our senses and we did footprints, handprints, and fingerprints! The children loved the feeling of painting on their body!
After five weeks of holidays, we were very pleased to welcome to nursery our old and new children! This week the children have been exploring the nursery, meeting their friends and making some new, and they settled down, ready for the new term!Parents, you were all very helpful and we wait for you every Thursday morning to read book stories together. Enjoy the first photos of this year!
Oh! Be careful Aryan, you have to lower your head now!
The children are walking in confidence and as a team!
It seems like Lily found a friend here!
Since we got tired walking, we found a shed and decided to read a story about animals.
Time for fun! Let’s play the ”mystery box”. Logan just had his turn!
Ruby and Sara went on the first trip with our boat!
The children drew circled windows and then cut the cardboard with the help of our school Caretaker, Mr Sean.
A simple cardboard box turned into our boat. The children were excited to paint the boat with their brushes!
The children painted some waves with their fingers!
We learned that we can use our milk cartons to make boats. Children tried to use their three fingers to hold and cut with a scissors the simple shapes they drew, like triangles and circles
Today we had the chance to welcome the parents and carers of our 2-year-olds in the nursery for a special session. Tanya Cogan from the Children’s Centre helped us to set up a variety of activities that support Early Writing. Parents and children joined in the Mark Making adventure, enjoyed the painting, sand and foam but most of all the company of each other. Every child received a pack of resources and a Guide for Mark Making activities at home.
