There was lots of fun and learning going on at nursery today. The house corner is still being used for Stonelaw Café. The children are enjoying pretending to be waitresses and chefs, lots of lovely food has been prepared and sold in our café. Euan was in charge of the till today, he did a very good job adding up and giving people their change! The book corner was also very popular, the children were answering questions relating to their favourite stories using the Bloom's Buttons questions. On the floor we also had the castle and knights, duplo train set, stepping stairs and balancing beams. For technology we had the giant floor piano and the tablet. On the maths mat we had sorting materials with the scales and giant tweezers. We also had the connecting elephants and sequencing cards which were very popular today. Matthew M's Mummy brought in some lovely fresh lemon smelling play dough, all the children were keen to play with this.
Miss Smith and the children continued learning about Earth, some of the children drew fantastic pictures in the floor book.
Others were building towers using the Duplo, these weren't ordinary towers, these towers spelled out their names!
Snack today was oatcakes with cheese or butter, melon and strawberries with a choice of milk or water to drink.
At Get Together Time we learnt five new Makaton animal signs to use when singing Old McDonald had a Farm: cat, dog, sheep, cow and pig! The children are really enjoying learning to use Makaton sign language and are often asking how to sign new words.
Today it was Euan's turn for Show and Tell, he brought in two of his favourite story books all about Supertato! Euan was able to read these stories to his friends with a little help from Mrs Blain.....Well Done Euan!
Just before home time we have great fun playing with the giant scrunchie. The children were very good at listening to information and instruction to move the scrunchie in the right direction.
