We would like to welcome Carol and Samantha to the tweenie room team they will be working alongside Eilidh and Amy. As a staff team we have been reflecting on how we can improve our room to create a development plan for this year. We have decided to implement the Getting It Right For Every Child (GIRFEC) government initiative, to continue to develop our and the children’s knowledge of recycling and we will be looking at ways we can become more involved with the local community. So far the children have been recycling items that have been brought in from home to paint with, glue with and make lots of noise with. We have also been developing our skills for using the walk-o-dile to go out for walks so far we have been using it to go on small walks within the community on one occasion we went to the library and have found out we are allowed to attend their book bug session on a Friday morning so we are aiming to implement this trip into our routine on a Friday.

Within the room the children have started to create a family tree! The tree has been made using different coloured hand prints that the children made along with brown and white paintings. We then added a family picture for each of the children and we have observed that the children enjoy looking at and talking about their family pictures every day.

We have been spending lots of time this month developing our balancing skills when out in the garden using both the large and small balancing beam. When using the large beam the children have needed support from staff, however on the small beam the children are becoming more confident and want to use this independently with the security of a staff member being nearby if the want help.

We have begun to introduce a welcome and group time into our room to help develop the children’s abilities in interacting in small and larger groups. It also means that our room is becoming similar to the toddler room which will help support transitions. Of course the children are also enjoying participating in group song, story and dancing opportunities.
