Outdoor Area

The Early Years Team spent yesterday afternoon developing our existing outdoor area, we added tyres for planting, a new mark making area, a seating area using a large cable reel and logs as seats, we also have some new number logs for balancing on.

These little girls were very helpful carrying our new plants through.

#alr really enjoyed helping fill the tyres with soil.

#mc and #sh worked together to travel on the bike. #lha had fun pushing her bicycle around the track. #gg developed her bilateral co-ordination when pushing down on the pedals on the bicycle. #ld enjoyed making music in the music area of the outdoor provision.

#mc, #jg, #lha, #gg and #sh were very keen to explore the new multi-play structure.

Exploring Pumpkins

Mrs Riddell kindly brought in her beautifully decorated pumpkin from home; Pre-Nursery had lots of fun exploring it.

#sh said, “Pumpkin,” “Star,” and “Flowers.”

#mc said, “Twinkle twinkle,” as she pointed to the star. She then pointed to the mouth and eyes, saying, “Mouth” and ” Two eyes.”

#lha said, “Eyes.”

#srw, #erc, #ec, #alr, said, “Pumpkin,” when we brought the pumpkin over it. #srw pointed to the star and said, “That looks like twinkle star.”

I ask, “What’s inside? What could be shining bright?” #srw tells me, “A light.”

#erc says, “I’ve got a pumpkin bucket.” I ask, “What do you use it for?” She replies, “I’m going to say trick or treat please.” I ask, “Will you wear something different?” #erc said, “A princess dress.”

After taking the lid off, #erc and #srw worked together to fit the lid back inside the pumpkin.

I say, “Look at the front of the pumpkin, what can you see?”  #erc tells me, “A flower, I like flowers.” I ask, “What do you like about flowers?” #erc remained quiet.

Pre-Nursery trip to the park. 

Our communication and language focus is the story,  ‘The Three Little Pigs,’ we’ve been talking about the materials that each house is made with.

Today, afternoon Pre-Nursery went to Wavertree Playground – this is often referred to as ‘The Mystery’ – to collect sticks!

 

#erc knew that the feathers came from the birds.

The children showed great listening and understanding skills when they were running and able to stop and go when asked!
