What did we do through the month of January?

We have been busy with a mixture of children choosing activities to engage with, adults leading some activities about emotions and sharing stories on Tapestry, for those children at home.
Children have been mark making with the pens just like the adults use and with pens attached to wooden spoons to draw on paper on the wall.  They have enjoyed playing with small world resources such as the Happyland sets and they have been problem solving by connecting tracks together.  They have been building up their resilience to play outside in the very cold weather we have been experiencing and have been responding to adults’ suggestions to play games to keep themselves warm, such as running to different places outside or moving around like a particular animal or object. We have also played with Cloud dough which is hair conditioner and cornflour mixed together – it was good fun and feels interesting to play with! The adults squirted shaving foam on the easel!  We used our big arm movements to make marks in it

Fundraising

We have various fundraising activities throughout the year, many are ones that the children can participate in making it a fun way to raise money for Nursery resources. Due to the current climate we have had to re-think on some of these but are able to go ahead with the likes of our ‘Pancake Toddle’. This will take place throughout the w/c 8th February where the children will navigate obstacles and hurdles, balance over beams, step through hoops and weave in and out of cones and pancakes are enjoyed by all at the end!

Over this year we have raised the following:-

Sponsored Find £377 – we have been able to buy some more books for our book corner and also add to our puzzle collection

Lucky Wheel Draw £190 – with this money we purchased new waterproofs ready for the wet weather and snow

Pancake Toddle £237

A huge thank you for all parents/carers for your continued support!
