Tulips have enjoyed exploring natural resources and zoo animals today.
Today in Poppy room we celebrated Red Nose Day by creating our own little red noses. The children enjoyed tearing and sticking the cotton wool as well as identifying the colour red. All the children loved finding their eyes and mouth and we learnt the song “Head, shoulders, knees and toes”. They loved exploring the different textures of the cotton wool when dry and wet.
This morning we had fun exploring an Easter sensory tray in Daisy room. There were lots of different textures for the children to explore and they enjoyed finding the little eggs and flowers that were hiding in there too.
This week in Tulips we have been doing a lot of creative Easter activities. We started the week off with a bug hunt where we were lucky enough to spot a baby rabbit, we created beautiful daffodil paintings, made our own chocolate Easter nests and were even super lucky to find a ‘dinosaur egg’ which we carefully brought inside and painted. To finish off the week we have made Easter cards, iced and decorated cupcakes, gone on an Easter hunt to find all the eggs the rabbit has hidden and lots more.

We have enjoyed exploring a sensory farm tray this morning in Daisy room! I used a variety of cereal, such as weetabix for the hay bales and crispies, Cheerios and shreddies for the different areas for the animals. The children really enjoyed exploring the tray and moving the animals around, listening to the different sounds that were made as the animals stood on the different cereal. We also talked about the different noises the animals made, encouraging the children to imitate sounds and name animals that they were familiar with! The children played for such a long time and focussed throughout the activity.
Bluebell room have done body painting this morning! the babies had lots of fun making marks with their hands and with the brushes!
In Tulips today we have been using our chalk boards to draw different facial expressions.
