We’re going on a worm hunt!

We had fun in the Mud Kitchen today… we went on a worm hunt!

First we worked together to lift the logs to search for worms…it was wet and warm under there and that’s what worms like…the children were very brave and picked them carefully up.

We collected lots of worms, chatting about how we looked after all insects and creatures.

So we then decided that we needed to make a home for them.

We got a container and decided to fill it with leaves, sand, grass and some wet sloppy mud… all the things that worms love and then we popped them in their new home…

they absolutely loved it…

…and so did we!

Being creative…

The children love our creative area.

It enables provision of a new set of skills for self expression and communication as well as giving an outlet for them to express and cope with their feelings.

There is no right or wrong, we encourage the children to try out new ideas, new ways of thinking and problem solving, as well as being able to practise and develop known skills…

just look at the concentration on these lovely faces…

… and their fabulous creations and happy faces!

Some of our children’s creative master pieces, all unique and individual…


Layla’s Mr. Norman mask…

Harrison’s rocket with super blasters…

Lottie’s space rocket that’s as tall as her…

Millie’s owl puppet…

Grayson’s collage owl…

…and Isabella’s Bill, with added squares to make him just right! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We love celebrating our children’s creativity!

 

FS2 PE – A fabulous, physical Wednesday

This week during PE, we have been working on our physical development.

We have been focussing on our overall body strength, balance, co-ordination and agility and developing and refining our ball skills, by catching throwing and aiming.

On our obstacle course, we were able to practise moving more fluently, with developing control, balance and spacial awareness.

We used the hurdles, to practise our jumping and landing skills.

 

We all all had a amazing time…regular exercise helps to keep us healthy and happy!
