Nursery room

Hello dear families from the Nursery room.

Today children had a beautiful day exploring, playing, singing and sharing with their friends.

Early at the morning Miss Charlotte encouraged children to use their fine motor skills and roll a smooth play dough pretending build some carrots for our little peter rabbit. Children helped educators to mix the ingredients while having turns and exploring with their senses the fragrances of some plants from our garden. Children were rolling, touching and cutting the playdough doing a beautiful job coping Miss Charlotte carrots.

Later, children enjoyed the amazing weather playing at the outside area, children were very interested on ride the bikes “their favourite outside toy this week” Miss Aida helped they to jump on the bikes and push a little bit it allowing children to have a ride on the bikes. Children F an A were so excited trying the different bikes and showing the educators their achievements. New challenges doing physical activities allow children to stimulated all their bodies while scaffolding on their physical and social development.

Children had a quite time exploring their senses touching, looking and playing with feathers, they put it on their faces, head, arms doing a little bit of tickles playing with it. At the end they added the feathers to their special gifts for Easter.

Today children follow the guitar accords singing, dancing and exploring the sounds from it. Educators play some songs as twinkle twinkle little start and little peter Rabit song encouraging children to join they using other musical instruments. Children X and V were very curious doing different sound with the guitar while copping the educators movements. Music is a beautiful tool to stimulated children senses and cognitive development.

What an amazing week we had doing different Easter activities as art crafts, singin, dressing and reading Easter stories. Have a lovely Easter weekend.

Vacation care

Hello dear families

We just can’t believe we have come to the end of the week ! It has been so fun and productive for our little ones. This morning we baked our very own Easter biscuit, and what a great experience it was as we got the opportunity of Learning a life skill and also enjoy doing so. We started by adding flour then crushing the butter , and then Adding the egg, cinnamon and milk to roll. Everyone just wanted to have a turn and patiently waited for that. After having extra dough the children decided to use it for play as they pretended to cook.

After a yummy morning we put our hats on and sunscreen in readiness for our excursion to the youth shed. The many social amenities in it are simply amazing and prompt our gross motor skills, by having to slide of the big long slide, playing in the ball pool, climbing around the play ground, The list is endless. To cool off all of that steam the children sat for a drink of water and of course the biscuits we had just made.

Furthermore in the afternoon, we were so tired after using all our energy at the youthshed and took the time to relax by reading our books and also making some Easter baskets. This enabled us to use our imagination as we looked at the pictures to tell our own story, as well as made the baskets.

Have a great long weekend and happy Easter

Thursday 18th April

Hello dearest families and happy Thursday

We had a lovely morning playing outside with our friends and in the water tray with some small insects and frogs. Miss Laura sang a song about frogs; “Five little speckled frogs” and when they jumped into the pond the toddlers made the frogs jump in with a big splash. Child c had a go at counting how many frogs he could find. Our toddlers are getting very good at their numbers but counting how many objects is still a tricky one.

After some tasty morning tea of some raisin toast, we explored a new mat on the floor which had lots of colourful fish and octopus and even some mermaids on it. Just like our toddlers like looking at story books, this large picture was a brilliant talking point and the children noticed lots of interesting things. Miss Mackless noticed one of the children was tapping her hands on her legs like in a song we sing about ‘ducks on a pond’. Miss Mackless helped extend the child’s interests and learning by imitating and creating music with her hands by tapping them on her lap too. Soon all the children on the mat were joining in, going hard and then soft, fast and then slow. What a lovely moment.

Outside we stripped off our shorts and skirts and had an impromptu water play, led by the children’s interest in water. We put the sprinklers out and they loved splashing, running through the water, trying to catch the water in containers and generally enjoyed the feel of the water on their skin and hair. After a good soaking, we all ran around and chased our friends to stay warm and dry off a little before getting changed. What a fun experience.

We hope you all have a lovely long weekend and enjoy Easter if you chose to celebrate this holiday.

See you all on Tuesday

Miss Laura, Miss Sam and Miss Mackless
