New friendships continue to be built and the children are learning to express their likes and dislikes to each other in a polite way. The children are enjoying using the mud kitchen and regularly visit this area of the garden to engage in their pretend cooking.
This term we have been learning about winter. We have made faux snow and the children have had the opportunity to explore frozen ice blocks. They have also found small pieces of ice in the garden which they have been fascinated by. As part of our topic on winter we will be learning about some of the animals that live in the Polar Regions, their names and their habitat. We will also be learning about the animals that hibernate and those that migrate for the winter.
We continue to cook once a week and we are trying to focus more on heathy recipes.
We would like to ask all parents to dissuade your child from bringing toys to nursery as they often get lost, broken or the children argue over them.
We would like to request that children wear shoes on a Friday and not wellingtons, as they are not very safe to wear on the climbing apparatus. If your child is going to come to nursery in wellingtons on a Friday could you please send them with a change of shoes for PE.
Finally, please remember to fill your child’s drinks bottle with water and not juice.
