The easter bunny arrived in the toddler garden today and left colourful easter eggs for the boys and girls.
The children were so excited and had a lot of fun trying to find the eggs the bunny had hidden in the garden.
“Here is the Easter bunny”
“Look mine is in the car”
“I have a green one”
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!
Today in the toddler room Spring was in the air! The children were using forks dipped in paint to print lovely tulips on to coloured paper. They were then using paint brushes to paint stems onto their pretty flowers. This created a good discussion about Spring and what flowers appear at this time of year. The children also enjoyed the novelty of painting with forks!!
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.
Our new big tyres are a great success in the Toddler garden.
“I can climb over it.”
“I am trying to balance.”
“Look I am in the big tyre.”
We joined them together to make a wiggly worm and the children were using them as an obstacle course
This gave the children the opportunity to walk, crawl, jump, balance, climb and develop their gross motor skills.
The toddlers were signing in today using our new Self Registration Board.
The children find their picture with their name on it and put it onto the board to sign themselves in and let everyone know “I’m here!”.
This is helping to develop early literacy skills with the children beginning to recognise their name. It is also developing their independence.
The children are enjoying this experience in the morning/afternoon.
Today the toddlers had fun investigating shapes.
They were using the coloured lollipop sticks to make squares, rectangles and triangles!
They were identifying the different colours of sticks, concentrating on making their own shapes and filling the shapes on the floor with the lollipop sticks creating patterns.
Today the toddlers have spent time washing the babies and their clothes using lots of bubbles.
We also choose lots of different materials to decorate our ginger bread houses, each child made their own design.
Today the toddlers enjoyed joining some of our parents for a bookbug session with Jo and Sharon.
We all had fun listening to the story of The Gingerbread Man, participating in action songs, rhymes and singing with the bookbugs.
Some of the children were dressed up as their favourite characters from books to celebrate World book Day.
