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.

 

We’re going on a local walk!

In the home room this week we decided to take advantage of the nice day and go for a walk around our local environment.

The children were looking for different colours and numbers that they could find and they were also collecting different autumn materials as this is what they have shown an interest in talking about: autumn and the leaves changing colours.

N and E spotted numbers on the postbox as we were walking past…

”I found number 9”
”number 7 Linzi!”

The children noticed from a distance that they could spot a house that stood out from all the rest, can you tell which one?!

”There’s a yellow house it’s so big”

I and R spotted numbers on a fence as we were walking past, do you know what numbers they are?

”I can see a 9 and a 3, what does that make?”

D and A were using mathematical language and conversationĀ  at the top of the hill saying that ”we are so high up look how far up we came”

Most importantly, we were making sure we looked left and right and listened and looked for cars coming to ensure that we all crossed the road safely!
