Thursday 15th October
Good evening everyone,
I hope you all had a good day. Wherever you looked in nursery today there were busy, happy children engaged in the learning activities. Children were practicing their fine motor skills by continuing to explore autumn and drawing and cutting out their own leaves, there were potatoes of all sizes to mash and bash in the sensory tray and children cooked a delicious autumnal butternut squash bhaji. In the two year old class children enjoyed making a friendship collage together. They used their autumn leaves to make a vibrant and colourful display.
Out in the garden children were learning all about bulbs and were busy planting them out, ready for a beautiful spring display. October is bulb planting time, so if you do have a garden now is the time to plant out snowdrops, crocus, daffodils, tulips, alliums etc. ready for a beautiful spring display. If you don’t have a garden a pot of spring bulbs on a window sill or balcony will bring a welcome splash of colour after the winter months.
This is a lovely time of the year. We are also celebrating Black History month during October, this isn’t a once a year activity, equality and understanding difference are firmly embedded in our think equal curriculum, however we have an additional focus on black history during this month and mark the month with discussion, stories, music, dance and cooking activities.Have a lovely evening.
