The sensory experience of the water balls last week was such a success we kept them for another week, this time simply adding eight spiders. Everyone enjoyed searching for and playing with eight legged mini-beasts, in amongst the cool and calming water balls.

This week we continued focusing on patterns. We revisited the concept of what makes a pattern and those able enjoyed the challenge of completing and making more complex patterns. Under the stairs, our ‘role play nook’ transformed into a garden where the children created stories while sharing delicious picnics and tending to the vegetable plants. In the Letter Room, Nursery enjoyed gently taking care of the scented herbs, digging in the soil and filling plant pots in our garden centre. Inspired by Claude Monet’s Waterlily Pond, the children spent time creating paintings of colourful gardens using watercolour paints.

On Thursday we will celebrate St Patrick’s day. The children are welcome to come to Nursery wearing a touch of green!
