Little Red Riding Hood Visits The Home Room!

In the home room, the children have been enjoying the story ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and exploring it indifferent ways.

The have been looking at story cards and homemade puppets and decided that they wanted to re enact the story themselves and turn themselves into the characters!

Using the different  materials and resources around the room they creatively made different props in order to create the story.

Firework Fun

We have continued our enjoyment with fireworks today in the toddler room where the children helped make playdough in the colour of the night sky.  We added different colours of glitter to represent the sparkles from the fireworks with pipe cleaners and shredded paper to make their own fireworks .

They made edible sparklers using breadsticks, icing sugar and colour sprinkles.  Wow… how yummy!

The children enjoyed sparkly mark making as they drew their own catherine wheels and made their own colourful firework pictures.

Role play

The children in the home room have been very imaginative at creating different pretend play games within the room.

We used material to create one of a kind dresses …

The children started school and brought paper and pens ….

We enjoyed baking some cakes, and made sure we were safe by using oven gloves when taking them out the oven as they were very hot.

Welcome to the Home Room

Hi everybody! Sarah-Jane here,

The children would like to show you around our home room in our nursery and all the wonderful experiences we have.

”Fiona reads us stories, this one is about the zoo animals”

In our small world area, the children were showing Linzi how to build a train track going to the fairy village.

In our home room, we have a kitchen and a living room area. The boys and girls enjoy engaging in role play and imaginative play where they cook the dinner for their babies and talk on the phone to their mums and dads.

The children are role playing a real life scenario in our kitchen area.. Deciding what is for dinner!! Does this happen in your house too?

Here is where we have snack in the home room… Today we are having banana, apples and crumpets.. Yummy!!
