In the baby room we will be learning about different kinds of animals, we will be making our very own animal pictures using various materials; this will enable the babies to use their senses to explore different textures.
During world Book Day the babies can come along dressed as their favourite story book character. Pictures of their favourite stories will be created using lots of different materials, paint, chalk etc the children will experience how to make different marks using their fingers and the palms of their hands whilst creating these pictures.
We will be encouraging our babies to become very vocal during story and rhyme times, their favourite songs will be sung, and the children will be encouraged to join in with story time by making sounds and noises and actions.
Snack time will be fun as the babies can indulge in trying new textures and flavours on Pancake Day.
Our main focus in the toddler room is going to be World Book Day, we are going to read some of the children’s favourite stories and rhymes and also introduce some new exciting ones to keep the children interested, the children can then choose a picture from their favourite book or rhyme and take this home to colour in with their family. The pictures will be displayed in the room for everyone to see.
A new display will feature all the children’s favourite stories. The children have been enjoying ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ and ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’.
The children will also be getting involved with Pancake Day and Red Nose Day.
The theme for Red Nose Day is Mickey and Minnie or Red and White.
Our Pre-School will have lots to celebrate, with their friends at nursery and with their families at home.
Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day)
We will be making our own pancakes, choosing the toppings we want to go on our pancakes and then tucking in and having them for snack. The children will learn what ingredients are used to make the batter and learn about measurements.
Comic Relief (Red Nose Day)
We will be raising money to support Comic Relief, the children will learn about the importance of helping one another, making it a fun day for everyone they will be baking cup cakes and biscuits, designing their own red and black pictures to display, dressing up as Mickey and Minnie, making masks, ears and headbands and getting really messy as they get their hands in the strawberry jelly.
World Book Day
We will be joining in with World Book Day, our staff will be dressing up as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, our Snow White will be played by Sonia. We will also be sharing and reading some of our favourite stories. The children absolutely love ‘The Hairy Toe’.
All our mums/carers are invited to join us for a spot of afternoon tea. Tea and cakes will be served along with an afternoon of games, stories music and movements.
