Merry Christmas

The staff here at Meadows would like to wish all our parents and children a very merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you all back here in the new year. It’s been a very busy year for all staff and children, with welcoming hello’s to new faces and sad goodbyes to some of the older ones on their new adventures. Here are just some of the things we have been up to ready for christmas

Look at the work the children (with the help of Lisa) have done transforming an outdoor area into a hive of activity for digging, planting and growing and a dinosaur garden. If you look in the corner, you can see the bug hotel, we now await new arrivals!!

Tomatoes

We have been growing some tomatoes in the garden and they are now growing really big. We have been looking at them closely this morning and have noticed some baby tomatoes starting to grow!

Today we have been playing in the sensory tray. We used rice and pasta to make a pretend birthday cake. We used long pieces of pasta to stick in the top to make candles!

We have been looking at different textures this week. We have been looking at lots of different objects and describing the texture of them. We used soft fluffy material to make somewhere for our dinosaurs to play. We used the green material for the grass, the grey material for the mud and the blue material for the water. We had lots of fun pretending the dinosaurs were going swimming and playing in the park!

Fun in the Sun

The weather has been lovely this week and lots of the children have enjoyed playing in the paddling pool and playing with the water hose! We have done lots of water based activities this week to help us stay cool. We have also been learning about how important it is to stay safe in the sunshine.
