    A busy time in baby room as our new babies are settling in  and our old timers are busy exploring the room, especially our recent addition the Natural Area. This is also being set up in our outdoor area, please come and have a look, it is a work in progress so any suggestions would be gratefully received. We are continuing with our numbers and colours theme during July as well as introducing a variety of media activities, the edible sand and soil continues to be a favourite. Can we once again ask for family photos for our display.

    Little Toddlers

    Many thanks for sending your animal related photos in for our display, we still have some space to add more if you haven’t sent any in yet. We are looking for pictures of you visiting the zoo, farm or sea life centre or photos of your pets. We would also like family photos, if you haven’t already sent yours in  please do so, this really helps the children with their learning regarding home life, cultures and family.

    We will continue to enjoy lots of messy play activities and explore the new outdoor area, please don’t forget to pack spare clothes, sun cream and hats. Many thanks

Please remember to supply spare clothes and shoes. Thank you for all your donations for our home corner, we are always grateful for  donations of items such as kitchen utensils, jewellery, old handbags etc for the children’s role play.

    Little Group

    This month we will be looking closely at sensory activities and this links to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). We will be getting messy, muddy, wet, sticky, gooey and exploring lots of other sensations. We will be tasting different foods and discussing how they feel to touch, smell and taste and we will be using new descriptive language.

    Middle Group

    Over the next couple of weeks middle group will be exploring their creative skills through play and focused activities. We will be exploring a range of senses and exploring the outdoors.

    Our children are thoroughly enjoying our dinosaurs topic, learning about pre historic life through a range of activities including making fossils, looking for dinosaurs and exploring the ice looking for frozen dinosaurs. Overall we look forward to having a fun filled July giving the children lots of opportunities to stimulate their interests and explore the summer.

    As holiday season is upon us the hall children will start the month with ‘let’s go camping’ this will involve lots of fun activities inside and outside including a bbq tea. This will then lead on to ‘holidays’. We know lots of the children have either recently been on holiday or are due to go, please share your holiday photos with us so we can discuss then with the group. If you are due to go away we would love it if you could send us a postcard.

    Barney Bear will be coming home with your child shortly, please look after him, have fun and take lots of photos for us. Thank you

    Natalie, Lyndsey, Chloe, Claire and Julie
