Today the toddlers thought that porridge would be a yummy snack. They helped to measure out the oats and milk and all gave it a good stir. We then watched it cook “it got very hot”. The toddlers then chopped up some banana to add into their bowls of porridge. This was a “delicious “ snack they all agreed .
Today the toddlers took advantage of some better weather and went for a walk. We decided to look for leaves which were different colours. We also spotted a thistle, some berries “that only birds can eat” we found pine cones and some of the children thought that the pine tree was tickly to touch. We brought the leaves and pine cones back to the nursery so that we can make a lovely Autumn picture.
Today the children have had fun discovering the animals on Old MacDonalds farm. The toddlers discussed what kind of sounds the animals made and what their babies are called. One of the children took the farmer for a ride on the horse. We also enjoyed listening to the story, singing the song and creating our own imaginative play with the farm animals. At one point the barn caught fire and a fire engine was called to put the fire out. Fortunately all the farm animals were saved, hoorah.
Today the toddlers were visiting the big ones garden. They were all very excited and got to try lots of new experiences. The obstacle course was a big hit The children showed confidence climbing up the crates ,jumping off and then making their way through the tyres.
Today the toddlers chose their favourite colours of paint to put in the bags. We then closed the bags and the children used their hands to press on the paint “this felt very squishy “. The children discovered they could then draw shapes and patterns on the bags. The paint also mixed together and made different colours.
Today the toddlers have created a home for dinosaurs.
They chose grass and sand for the dinosaurs to make foot prints in.
We thought pasta,pine cones,twigs and water would be good for the dinosaurs to eat and drink.
The children thought some of the dinosaurs were very big and scary when they roared …..
Today the toddlers made the most of the good weather and enjoyed lots of different learning experiences. They were busy watering the welly plants and riding the bikes . We also created some nice pictures with the paint and played with the playdough. We were very tired after our busy day and happily chilled out in our book corner area outside.
The children could feel the heat from the fire and warmed their hands while they waited on the pakora cooking. They also thought the ash looked liked snow . We even got to try some and it tasted really yummy !!
Today the toddlers have enjoyed using their hands to make leaf shapes for their tree using green paint. After allowing this to dry the afternoon children added on the tree trunk. Tomorrow we are excited to add some cherry blossoms and it will look like the trees near our centre.
