Pre-school have been experimenting with colour mixing this week using powder paint and water. They used bottles and pipettes to squirt water onto the powder and watched as the texture began to change. They then used brushes to mix all the paints together and commented on how the colours merged and created what they called "fireworks!" πŸŽ¨πŸŽ† ... See MoreSee Less

The children have spent some time in the garden making perfume. They had fun collecting leaves and flowers to place into a bowl of water. We added herbs and spices which they enjoyed smelling using words such as, 'Spicy, cooking, like grass.' The children extended this play and went from making perfume to, 'Making soup!' Yummy! ...

The toddlers enjoyed planting seeds this week. They used tools to dig up the soil and placed it into pots. They planted their seeds and watered them. Throughout the course of the week, the children have been looking after their plants by watering them regularly. We have also been discussing how they need sun and water to grow. The children are very excited to see their seeds grow into flowers! πŸŒΌπŸŒΊπŸŒ»β˜€οΈ ... See MoreSee Less

Pre-school have planted some seeds this week in the hope of growing their own vegetables! We spoke about what the seeds may need to grow and how we need to look after them.

We thought it would be nice for parents to see some of our recent dishes, that our brill chef Iain has made for the children. This is just a few of our delicious homemade (no added salt) lunches, puddings and teas. πŸ™‚

Very very tasty what a great chef.

The children have participated in a gardening activity where they have used buckets and spades to transfer soil into a planting pot. Once the pot was full, the children sprinkled the flower seeds into the planting pot, later watering them with a watering can. We talked about nature and 'how it works' during the activity, learning that plants need sun and water to grow. We will be observing and taking care of the flower seeds in the next few weeks, discussing what changes we can see and ensuring the seeds are watered so they can grow. The children were very engaged and showed great interest in this activity πŸŒΊπŸŒ»πŸ¦‹πŸ ... See MoreSee Less

The children have enjoyed reading 'Elmer The Patchwork Elephant' throughout the week, where they have participated in various activities linked to the story. One of their favourite was decorating a big Elmer using patchwork materials where we have talked about colours and textures. We have then set up a jungle, and we have worked on recalling the story during play where the children have showed how well they have remembered the story! The children have also drawn their own little Elmer using paint dabbers and colouring pencils, making their own patterns 😊 ... See MoreSee Less

Pre-school have been exploring different textures using a variety of activities including sand play, playdough and water beads. There have been lots of conversations about the textures using descriptive language such as "it's squishy", "it feels like jelly", "gritty", "it soft and bouncy" πŸ–πŸ’¦ ... See MoreSee Less

The toddlers enjoyed an activity where they explored germs. The paint represented the 'germs' and the children were able to wash the germs away using lots of soap and warm water. We also discussed with the children the importance of washing our hands to support their understanding further! ... See MoreSee Less
