This week we have been encouraging the children to develop their self help skills by helping to prepare their own snack.
We are learning how to use a child’s knife safely with adult guidance “like this, so we don’t cut our fingers”
We are developing an awareness of how to recycle our food waste.
We are tidying up after ourselves and are very proud to be making our own snack.
Today in the toddler room the children have been developing their gross motor skills by using the Lego cars to create pictures with different coloured paint.
We also made the most of the nice weather out in the garden, without the need for wellies and suits ,playing in the purple sand watching it sparkle in the sun.
We have been taking part in the Wildlife Trust’s 30 Days Wild challenge. Can you do 30 simple but random acts of wildness? At Cart Mill we certainly can! Today we decided that walking in the grass in our bare feet was quite random. The children loved the feel of the grass between their toes. Some of them were extra wild and even tried some mud between their toes!
As the weather was so nice last week the toddlers enjoyed a morning in the park. The swings were a big favourite with the climbing frame coming in a close second choice the children decided.
