In 0-1’s this month we will be learning our colours through physical exploration. We will be using our large sensory tray to explore different coloured paint. We will be using every part of our body to explore the paint and learn some new single words. We will also be exploring coloured edible materials such as ice, pasta, angel delight and custard. We will be exploring what happens when we mix them together and how the ice melts.
In our 1-2 room this month we are going to be learning about colours. We are going to use our developing sharing and turn taking skills to make dens together, talking about the material we are using and the colours of the materials. We will also be taking part in science experiments were we will mix primary colours of paint to create a secondary colour. We are very keen creators in 1-2’s and we will be using our creative skills to make collages using different coloured paper and wool.
You can help us learn the names of the colours by singing this song with us. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7tSN-WH96E
Our baby room takes part in weekly music sessions where we explore the sounds of instruments and our voices. We learn new words and develop friendships.
In toddler room this month we are going to be learning about outdoor creatures. We will be painting and making collages of bee’s, butterfly’s, ladybird’s and even some spiders. We will be learning about their habitat and what types of weather they like best. We will also be using some mini beasts to support our counting skills; “How many spots does a ladybird have?” We will also be taking part in crafts for fathers day using a variety of materials to show the special people in our life that we love them.

Our toddler room takes part in weekly music and yoga sessions. During these sessions we learn all about instruments and learn new words through the use of songs. In our yoga time we learn about movements and ways in which we can move our bodies in response to music.
In Pre-School this month we are going to be learning all about schools. We are very excited for our next transition and will be taking part in lots of discussions around what “big” school we are going to and finding out what our new school looks like and even meeting some teachers. We are continuing with the school theme in our writing area by learning how to write the names of our schools. We are also going to be learning all about uniforms and will be challenged to dress ourselves in a full uniform; how exciting.

Our Pre-School takes part in weekly music and yoga sessions. Throughout both of these sessions we learn all about instruments and listen for the different sounds they make. We also move our bodies during our yoga session, this helps keep us active and helps to develop muscles. In our weekly Fun Fitness session we play sports games and learn all about the effects of exercise on our bodies. We take part in Forest School sessions where we explore the natural environment and talk about nature and where we live.
