Our very special guests Paw Patrol have now been confirmed and will be available at 10.30am, 11.30am & 12.30pm for photo opportunities.
This week our Tigers explored different textures and tastes and showed a willingness to try new foods when having an Indian feast for snack
time. We enjoyed onion bhaji’s, vegetable samosa’s, Bombay potatoes, chapattis and poppadoms with a choice of raita or mango chutney dips. All children tried a little bit of everything on their plates and then helped themselves to more, choosing their favourites.
This week we have been spending lots of time in the garden, where we have discovered that we have some baby birds in one of our bird boxes. T
he children have been very interested in the birds as they can hear them chirping and have been asking the practitioners to pick them up for a closer look. The children have also been interested in different ways to make marks outside,they especially enjoyed using the large paint brushes and water to ‘paint’ the side of the slide.
Our trip to Imagine That in Liverpool was AMAZING! All the children really enjoyed themselves whilst there. We decorated our own fridge magnets and bags, explored in the Science area and we even got to paint a real car! We enjoyed playing in the shop and the hairdressers. We also spent some time playing outside in the garden, climbing on tyres and playing in the sand pit.
We have been exploring our malleable area with Lakeisha, who set up different areas of the malleable tray with lots of different resources such as mixing cocoa powder and shaving foam for our swamp, the children went outside to collect grass, flowers, soil and bark, we also mixed salt and food colouring for sand so our animal, dinosaur and farm world resembled real life habitats in the tuff trays.
We also explored colours in the water using glow sticks and making it more fun by watching the water change colour with bath bombs and seeing the water bubble and the bath bomb disappear. We dimmed the lights and made a den over the water tray so we got the full effect of the glow sticks.
