Over last few weeks some the cruisers visited the beach. To extend the children’s interests we have had stones and shells in the sand and water. The children used their senses and developed their fine motor skills and hand eye coordination exploring the different textures and building with the stones. We made a little beach in the tuff spot with little people for the children to use there imagination and role play.

We made lovey cards for our mummy’s on Mother’s Day. We have also started our spring display using spring colours to paint with and hand print flowers. We have also being out local walks to see all the spring flowers that are popping up.

We celebrated Easter by doing various art activities and had an Easter sensory tray with eggs, chicks, crinkly paper and feathers. We also put different things into plastic eggs so they all made different sounds.

Cruisers have been enjoying more time out doors this month, both in the garden and out on walks. And as a lot of them are developing their gross motor skills we have used the soft play a lot too.

We introduced more natural resources into the cruiser room, the children have been developing their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination using a pen holder and dolly pegs and placing chick peas into little bottles. We have a tray with loose parts such as stones, shell’s, little stick and dolly pegs to provide lots of open ended play.

Now that the weather is starting to warm up could we please ask parents to provide sun cream and sun hats for their children.
