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.

 

Fun in the sun exploring our new garden!

The toddlers have been very busy in the nice weather making changes to our outdoor space. They are absolutely loving our new water feature wall which gives them lots of early numeracy experiences as they pour and fill  whilst playing with water.

We also have new storage for the children’s wellies and they are developing their coordination and independence skills by attempting to put their shoes and wellies on themselves! They are very proud when they manage to do it!

They enjoyed the freedom of painting outdoors and playing in the purple sand. The children have also loved exploring othe new dinosaur kingdom.  One of our toddlers was delighted to find a snail and make a little house for it from grass and leaves.

We are looking forward to some more great changes coming to our toddler garden soon!!
