The children loved the yellow rice Miss Smith had made and were showing their fine motor skills off using tweezers to pick up the rice. Soon the water tray was the same colour with slices of lemon floating in there for the children to squeeze and squidge. The children were also doing some fantastic painting at the easel mixing their reds, blues and yellows to great effect. Olivia was painting a beautiful picture for daddy using red and blue to make purple.
Mrs Black was following on from Miss Smith's green foods yesterday and picked sunny yellow foods to look at. The children were very good at identifying melon, lemon, peppers, corn and even yellow tomatoes. Then they were using yellow tissue paper, melon seeds, paint and pom poms to create their own pictures of the fruit they had been looking at. Stellan and Jasmine finger painted bananas and they looked brilliant.
Out in the garden Katie was cooking up a storm making a pie with broccoli, peas, celery and sprouts. The boys and girls were talking about what makes them a likeable person. Leo knew that being a friend to Logan was good because it makes Logan happy. Jack knew that his wee sister likes it when they are best friends. Mums and Dads can see all the children's answers up on the wall in the hallway - they are really worth a read!
Snack today was pitta bread, houmous, cherry tomatoes and apple slices all washed down with milk or water served up by Mrs Friel.
At Reflection Time Mrs Black read the very popular book "Sharing a Shell". Anna was very excited because she has this book at home. The story reminds the children that it is nice to share with their friends and help each other out. The children talked about their friends and what they liked to play with at nursery.
We will see you all tomorrow for more fun discoveries and learning.
