Good Afternoon Families
Loads of fun learning activities have been enjoyed by all our little learners today.
During our outdoor adventures we had so much fun hiding from our friends in the circus tent, popping their heads out letting out a little roar as their friends passed by, Archie and Jaxon thought they were so funny when they startled their friends, ( cheeky monkeys) loads of language development and social skills during this funny and exciting experience. Blocks also of interest with our little ones counting each block as the tower grew bigger and bigger, until crash it would topple down everyone Would clap and cheer and start all over again,
Yep, playing with blocks is geometry for toddlers! Stacking blocks is not only beneficial because it develops hand-eye coordination or social skills, but it is also beneficial because during block stacking toddlers begin to think like mathematicians. Specifically, they learn the most basic concepts in geometry and fun.
We zipped around on our bikes, kicked balls, chased bubbles and manoeuvred around the obstacle course, strengthening our gross motor skills and spacial awareness.
Annie was our chief bubble blower today, blowing so many bubbles as she swished the bubble wand through the air, even managing to catch a bubble on the wand Well done Annie!!
Isla and Summer enjoyed each other’s company as they climbed the soft foam blocks, and giggled with excitement as they ran down the slopey one.
Soon it was time for lunch, our little ones favourite today Pumpkin Soup with toast and a salad bar was on the menu. It didn’t take long for them to gobble it up Yummo!! While we waited on our lunch we sang Old Mac Donald Had A Farm. We all love singing along and mimicking the noises of each animal, today it was even more exciting as our hand puppets helped with the song. Saylor, Birdie and Pip all wanting to give the fluffy puppets a cuddle.
During our afternoon play we all enjoyed listening to a story, playing with the LEGO blocks, home corner and musical instruments.
We have all had such a wonderful day, thank you for sharing it with us ?
Have a great afternoon everyone, and we will see you all again soon.
Love Miss Deb and Miss Shafagh xxoo ❤️❤️
