The children were exploring different magnetic resources and what they stuck to.
We have discovered our wall is magnetic!
We also discovered we could collect the nuts and bolts using magnetic force!
Today all of the children in Cart Mill enjoyed a teddy bears picnic and an outdoor bookbug session.
The toddlers participated with the older children in a huge teddy bears picnic. They enjoyed singing familiar songs from bookbug sessions and learning some new songs.
We had a great time singing with our teddy bears and enjoyed an outdoor picnic snack .
The easter bunny arrived in the toddler garden today and left colourful easter eggs for the boys and girls.
The children were so excited and had a lot of fun trying to find the eggs the bunny had hidden in the garden.
“Here is the Easter bunny”
“Look mine is in the car”
“I have a green one”
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!
Our new big tyres are a great success in the Toddler garden.
“I can climb over it.”
“I am trying to balance.”
“Look I am in the big tyre.”
We joined them together to make a wiggly worm and the children were using them as an obstacle course
This gave the children the opportunity to walk, crawl, jump, balance, climb and develop their gross motor skills.
The toddlers were signing in today using our new Self Registration Board.
The children find their picture with their name on it and put it onto the board to sign themselves in and let everyone know “I’m here!”.
This is helping to develop early literacy skills with the children beginning to recognise their name. It is also developing their independence.
The children are enjoying this experience in the morning/afternoon.
Today the toddlers enjoyed joining some of our parents for a bookbug session with Jo and Sharon.
We all had fun listening to the story of The Gingerbread Man, participating in action songs, rhymes and singing with the bookbugs.
Some of the children were dressed up as their favourite characters from books to celebrate World book Day.
Today the toddlers were having lots of fun outdoors.
The children had fun rolling and catching the large wooden reel, sometimes they had to run to catch it.
The children were collecting mud from the ground, filling up their jars and emptying it onto our table in the mud kitchen to make a delicious chocolate cake. “look ladies its a chocolate cake “.
We enjoyed using loose parts to create our own pictures,” its a choo choo train”.
Earlier this week the toddlers had great fun exploring their outdoor area covered in snow. The children enjoyed catching the snowflakes in their hands and watching the snow melt and discovered frozen dinosaurs hiding in the garden. They really enjoyed playing in the snow and to finish they made a snowman.
