A very warm welcome back to all our children and families this week. It has been lovely to see the children returning to their routines in nursery and telling us all their exciting stories of Christmas time and family fun.
This week has seen a great deal of outdoor wet weather play. There has been a great deal of problem solving going on with one group of children who wanted to create a river in the garden. This involved them working together in order to decide how they could do this, discussions and problem solving about how they could make the river flow and also how they could fill it with water. They worked as a group , listening to one an other and sharing their ideas. They were able to work out that by trail and error one end had to be higher than the other end in order for the water to travel. This took them a while but they worked it out and then had great fun filling and transporting water together. It was really great to see new friendships being created and so much co operation working together.
Another lovely learning activity the children have engaged in has been learning to sew. This is so great for the children in developing fine motor skills , imagination and creativity. They have started off by using the small templates and will progress onto actual sewing when they feel confident.
