Week beginning 08.04.24


Spring is here and the garden is getting prepared! 🌺 The children have helped create a nice wee quiet space to relax and watch the world go by from the top of the garden. Using key skills such as gross motor skills, design, and communication, everyone worked very hard and contributed loads! With only a few finishing touches needed, the children have impressively created their own area in the garden to grow and develop. Always impressed by these wonderful minds 🌱🌈

Fine motor area

This week in the fine motor area the children have been exploring families and self portraits. The children drew their own self portraits, they used mirrors to identify their features on their face. The children then explained who was in their family and drew a picture of them.

Malleable Area

In the malleable area we have been using the book “there’s a monster in your book” we created our own monster using playdough and added pom, poms, pipe cleaners and googley eyes. We used our fine motor skills manipulating the dough into different shapes.


In woodwork  the children’s choice was to follow what they were drawing on their pictures and then designing them onto the wood. We then cut out the pieces of Wood sanded them down and then covered them with colourful buttons and sparkly gems.


Art Area

This week in the art area we have been creating our own Elmer elephants using tissue paper. We have been using the elephant to trace or draw round and then added lots of different coloured tissue paper. We have spoke about what we like about the story and what shapes and colours we can see too 🐘

Acorn Room

Pool party in the acorn room the children had fun splashing and exploring the props. The children laughed and sang songs.


This week in the stem area we have been exploring space. The children helped to make and melt ice and explore the colours that looked like the galaxy. We also used balloons and paint to create planets in our solar system that we found in a space book. As the week came to an end we made spaceships to fly around all of the planets 🚀 🌍 🪐
