Exploring with shells…..paint, sand and water😁


Gail was at the beach over the weekend and collected some shells for the toddlers to explore 👁


We printed with the shells investigating the different sizes and textures of the shells.


We used a variety of resources to create designs


We listened very hard to try and hear the ocean


We transferred the shells into the water to play with, also to clean our shells

We made sandcastles and decorated them with shells….how pretty

What a lot of fun we had today 🥰

 

 

 

 

 

Fun Fridays singing in the sun.

What a beautiful week it’s been at Cart Mill. The sun has been shining and we have all been engaging in our learning experiences outdoors.
Today we were taking part in ring games. We were singing some old favourites and learning some new , long forgotten rhymes.


First we got ourselves into a circle, then we played our first game “in and out the dusty bluebells” we were a little unsure of this game but luckily Jo was on hand to show us how to play it.

Then we played “5 little men in a flying saucer”, “5 current buns”  and “ring a ring roses” it’s was such much fun and we all got a turn of playing a different part in each of our ring games.


Taking  part in ring games teaches us lots of skills, such as counting, turn taking, learning new vocabulary, social interactions and much more.

After all that fun, we finished off with Emma’s favourite song “the Friday feeling” we got to stamp our feet, jump up high, turn around, clap our hands and shout out loud.

What fabulous fun times in the sun on a Friday to round off another great week at Nursery.
