In the Gruffalo Room the children have enjoyed telling stories to each other – this develops their communication skills including pre-reading skills.
They have been doing lots of cutting and sticking- this requires concentration and uses their fine motor skills.
Games such as Matching Pairs and Pack my Bag have been very popular. The children are learning to take turns and working out the rules of the game. They need also need to focus and use their observation skills.
In the ECC we had a Halloween day, many of the children dressed up and we hunted for bugs in the leaves and had a tray of worms to investigate. Some of the children help to carve a pumpkin and found out what is inside the pumpkin.
The children had been watching the diggers outside the nursery, so in the Gruffalo Room we ended up with a construction site. They have worked on foundations, building up the brick work, plumbing and drinking lots of tea.
