We looked at the book 'let's look at a puddle' to link in with our 'weather' topic. The children sat beautifully and we talked about splashing in muddy puddles. We looked at objects which might float and sink. Thursday 11th July 2019

We made fairy cakes!

Investigation area - shredded paper with sea creatures. The children enjoyed feeling the texture of the paper and hiding the animals within the paper. The children loved blowing the paper and making it fly everywhere.

Painting with rollers to create patterns and marks.

During our story time we looked at the book 'the wind blew' the children were able to identify the; front page, back page and title of the book. We then went out into the nursery garden and explored the parachute and balls. We had fun moving the parachute high and low. We talked about the different types of weather and what to wear in summer and winter. 


EYFS Statement - interested in books and rhymes and may have favourites (16-26 months)

The toddlers have been filling and pouring using cups in the water. We enjoyed watching the waterwheels spin and we observed how fast wheels spun. The children were amazing at putting their aprons on by themselves. Thursday 4th July 2019.
