The children have been going into the Pre-school outdoor area developing their physical skills on the climbing frame and using the bikes and cars. 

 

The children enjoyed having the opportunity going into Pre-school to hold and look at the baby chicks.

 

The weather was wet and windy so we took the opportunity for children to have fun puddle splashing. Even though the children got really wet they had lots of fun. 

 

During the May half term we changed our role play area into a building site for the children this was a huge success and the children have all enjoyed this learning experience.

Lots of fun and learning took place take a peek............

The children have had a couple of busy weeks- for focused activites they have been developing their fine motor skills by threading cheerios onto pipe cleaners , and making connections between the marks they make by painting with objects from around the room.

They have also still been having fun with the outdoor water wall and the babies in the role play area, both areas have been a great learning experience for all the children. Also children have been learning to blow bubbles using straws in the water tray they had lots of fun.
