Toddlers explore Fruit

Today the children have enjoyed tasting different types of fruit. We sat together and discussed the different sizes, colours and weights of the fruit . We managed to put the fruit in order from smallest to biggest and the we pointed to the fruits that we knew the name of. We discovered that the biggest one was called a pomegranate and that it tasted yummy!

 


We also tried some lemons and limes!  “don’t like it” some children said , others enjoyed the taste. The favourite was oranges and strawberries. We tried passion fruit it was “yucky”.
The children were very engaged and this gave them the opportunity to socialise and and practise new words and language skills. We look forward to trying lots more foods and tastes another day.

Toddlers learn Colours


The children in the toddler room have been showing an awareness and interest in colours recently.

There has been a variety of experiences happening across the week in the toddler room that have helped the children recognise different colours.

The children chose their favourite colours and worked well together to make a lovely stained glass window for our room.

The children enjoyed playing with our 3D bead maze developing their knowledge of the different colours and enhancing their fine motor skills and control.

 

Toddlers – Water in the Sun and Rain

The toddlers have been learning about all the different ways to use water. As the weather was so warm and sunny the pool came out. This was very exciting. We filled the pool and then put some bubbles in. The  children mastered some new skills getting changed into their swimming costumes. We then took turns to step into the pool. We had pouring and filling toys and a lot of splashing.

We have displayed the photos of the pool day in our centre and in our floorbook so that parents and carers can see them privately.

When the rain came we discovered we could turn the puddles into different colours. We explored what happens when you add chalk to a puddle or add water to it. The children thought we can make all the puddles different colours and chose what colour of chalk they
would like. It looks like a 🌈 rainbow.

 

Toddlers and Water🐟💦

The boys and girls were deeply engaged in some water play today.  We explored the different ways we could use the water. We had cold water then some warm water.  We added bubbles and colour to the water and watched the changes it made.The toddlers experimented using funnels, pots, sieves and syringes to watch how the water ran through them . They were developing great  pouring and emptying skills. We then added some sea creatures the children communicated with each other discussing the size and colours of sharks and whales. “I found baby shark “

Toddlers Construction Day

The toddlers were asked what they would like to do today and they asked for building blocks!

The toddlers spent time talking about the towers that they built, making fences for dinosaurs and building race tracks for cars.

They shared the blocks with each other and were learning how to problem solve, t turns and were very creative with their curiosity and building skills.

Well done boys and girls!
