Our first week back this term has been very busy with lots of Easter activities. The children used their creative skills and fine motor skills to decorate plastic eggs with felt tips. It was a little bit tricky keeping the eggs still but we used egg boxes and playdough to keep them from moving around while the children made their masterpieces.
There were number puzzles to solve in the shape of eggs.
The children helped make delicious chocolate nests by mixing the chocolate and cereal together.
Egg collages were fun to make. The children used different materials, colours and shapes to make their window decorations. All the children showed wonderful concentration and listening during this activity.
The day finally came when our brand new outdoor play area was ready for us to explore. As you can see by the photos below, we are very lucky indeed!!!!
Painting egg boxes was another of our creative activities. The children engaged in the activity with adult supervision and made some very colourful creations.
On Thursday morning the children went on an egg hunt outside. They found eggs in the tunnel, around the water play area, hiding among the plants and also in the messy kitchen area. It was great fun!!!
Messy play was very messy with shaving foam. The children enjoyed the feel of the foam and they found it funny the way it stuck to their hands.
Story time in our new reading corner was very comfortable this week. A big thank you to Mrs Akoto, we now have some very soft and cosy cushions to sit or lay on while reading all the wonderful books we have.
What an amazing week we have had, new friends have joined the nursery, we have had enormous fun in our new outdoor play area, lots of Easter activities and a new reading corner. We are very thankful!
Have a wonderful long Easter weekend and we will see you all on Tuesday 23rd April.
