Staying in and staying safe!

We are keeping ourselves busy, healthy and fit both indoors and outdoors.
In the morning we are working out with Joe Wicks PE sessions  (really a chance for my 3 children to laugh at me trying to get fit)

Getting out daily for a walk or bike ride, using the trampoline or shooting some Hoops with the basketball.

Jamie and I cut the grass yesterday another little work out!

In the nursery the children enjoy ‘Jump Start Johnny’, it’s available on you tube and are doing a work out for children and parents everyday.

We have birthday celebrations in our house today .
We decided to make Marc some very special birthday cards.
Looking forward to some cake later  🍰
Please stay at home and stay safe!

Stay and Play Week November 2019

House Building

This afternoon the children had great fun working together in the construction area using the building blocks to build their house. They  were discussing with each other which shapes and sizes of blocks would be best to build their house. The children were developing their social and communication skills using problem solving, enquiry based learning as well as working as part of a team.

“Let’s use the big  building blocks”

“We need to use our hammers to make sure it doesn’t fall down”

We had such great fun all working together as a team to build our house, the boys decided to expand it and turn it into a castle.

“It’s so big”

Developing our self help skills

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.
