Today’s yoga thought us how to  wash our hands and defeat the germ monster!  We learned the 6 movements to washing our hands and becoming a soaperhero!!

Step 1  RUB YOUR PALMS

Step 2 THEN CLEAN THE BACK

Step 3 BETWEEN YOUR FINGERS

Step 4 THEN YOUR NAILS

Step 5 TWIST YOUR THUMBS

Step 6 DRY YOUR HANDS

“We always have to wash our hands to not get sick.”

“We got the germ monster with the moves”

“I like the germ yoga, it was the best one”

 

Let’s Get Busy With Paint!

Using paints that the children selected, they explored their self expression and created their own masterpieces! The children mixed colours to make new ones, discussed their works of art with their peers and explored what tools they could use. Using our hands to paint was a favourite!

Take a look at these fabulous paintings in our garden gallery!

 

Some comments from the children. 

“I’m making a rainbow with all the colours”

“I’m painting a picture of me”

”It’s a picture for my mummy. Her favourite colour is  blue”

“It’s a picture of the sky. Look at the clouds that are so big”

Let’s Explore Colour Mixing

Today in the nursery garden the children have been exploring colour mixing. We used yellow, blue, red and white paint to mix experiment and see what other colours we could make.

“ I put the blue and the yellow together and made green!”

“ I put lots of blue and a little red, I think it looks purple”

Exploring what happened when we added white paint.  “ It’s gone pink” when mixing the red and white.

“I tried blue and yellow and it’s green”

“The orange is yellow and red, i needed lots of yellow”


The children were using their fine motors skills to use the pipettes and collect the paint to add to individual tubs.  They also used the colour wheel to and learn and explore colour.
