    We will be using pots and pans to make as much noise as we can and making bread. This will then lead us on to Chinese New Year, we will continue to use our senses to create and explore, we will make a dragon and taste traditional Chinese food.

    Younger Middle Group

    Well done to all the children who have started potty training, you are doing brilliantly. Thank you to all the parents for their support. To improve your child’s independence further we will work on other self-help skills, such as hand washing independently, getting dressed / undressed, putting on shoes & socks etc.

    The children have had fun getting messy this week and we will continue with more messy play in the coming weeks. If your child has wellies at home please bring them in to leave in their box.

    We hope you enjoy looking at your child’s observations through the I connect app, please feel free to add to these with any observations you make at home, this all adds to your child’s development tracker.

    The week beginning 5th February we will be looking at the colour red leading up to Chinese New Year celebrations the following week. Could we please ask parents to dress their child in red all week to support the red theme.

    We will also be looking to replenish our role play resource boxes therefore if you have any unwanted hairdressing items, baby box items – nappies, bottles, feeding, cutlery, bowls etc. Doctors box items, bandages, leaflets, tools etc. they would be greatly appreciated to support the children’s learning. Look forward to a busy February!
