October with Autumn Colours

There is a distinct autumnal feel to the nursery at the moment. This month we have been collecting tins of food for the homeless to celebrate Harvest Festival and the lady from the soup kitchen will be coming to pick up the food and teach the children where it is going and why. The pre-school children learnt a song to go with this about  fruit and vegetables which  was posted on our app.

Baby room have been looking at picture cards this week to extend their vocabulary and learn new words as well as being taught by reading new books. The babies and staff enjoyed getting P1150626 thumbmessy with shaving foam although some babies would only explore with a finger while others wanted to roll around in it! We have pumpkins in every room and babies are using theirs to learn their facial features by placing eyes ,nose, mouth etc on the pumpkin to resemble a face. To extend their fine manipulative skills the babies have also been using chunky chalks to mark make and some of the older babies are practising feeding themselves with support.

Jungle room have been using their pumpkins for various activities , they have made a lantern which makes the room look nice and cosy and inviting which the children love. They have also used them to extend hand-eye co-ordination by hammering golf tees into them which they had a lot of fun doing and they made glupe out of the pumpkin flesh and glue which provided a valuable sensory experience and made some great paintings by using spin art with a salad spinner.
