The toddlers have loved our new water wall! It has been a great opportunity for the children to explore many areas of their learning development. They were shown the effects created as the water was poured in firstly by an adult. They all had the opportunity to then pour the water in themselves. This developed their fine motor skills as they used cups and jugs to do so. The children explored quantity while pouring and demonstrated good cooperation as they shared and waited to have their turn. They were extremely fascinated by this activity, observing closely how the water passed down through the bottles from the top to the bottom.
Here are examples of what some of the children said:
'My hand is wet.' 'Look at the water, it's going to the bottom.' 'I can pour it in!' 'It feels cold.' 'The water is high.' 'The bottle is getting full.' 'There's no more water left now.' ... See MoreSee Less
We’ve had a busy few weeks in the Pre-school getting our school leavers ready to graduate to big school. They all loved having their graduation photos taken and had so much fun at our leavers party!
It is always a time full of mixed emotions for everyone. We are so proud of how far the children have come and have loved being a part of their journey. However, it’s also a sad time as we have to say goodbye to some of our very special friends, some of whom we have been caring for since they were babies.
We have loved every smile, every laugh, every story you have shared and every cuddle you have given. As always we have been overwhelmed with the cards, gifts and kind words shared and would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our wonderful families for being a part of Nursery Rhymes – you will all be very missed! ...
