Tweenies’ have enjoyed exploring their local community this month. We have visited Polson Park, which helped to develop our gross-motor skills, Tweenies’ have been enjoying both walk to the park and going in the buggies. We have been developing our gross-motor skills by climbing up the stairs to the slide and pushing the round about and traveling across the wooden bridge. We have also visited Tranent library, where we have been exploring different books. We read ‘Guess How Much I Love You in Summer’ and ‘Monkey Puzzle’ with our teachers and took time for ourselves while looking at different picture books.

The Tweenies’ have been interested in playing with the transport in the construction area, they have been getting messy making our own car wash using shaving foam, building train tracks and using Thomas and his Friends on it and have enjoyed looking out the window at all the different types of transport passing.

With the weather getting warmer, Tweenies’ have enjoyed using different materials to make marks in the garden. They used their fine-motor skills to hold the paintbrushes and pens. They also used water with the paintbrushes to make marks on the ground and on different equipment in the garden. Tweenies’ also used their fine motor skills to carefully hold the straw and make marks on their paper using different coloured paint in the room. Tweenies’ practiced using Pincer grips and Palmer grasps to hold the straws.

Staff in the Tweenie Room have introduced a Heuristic/natural material area for the children to explore. There are lots of different textures such as driftwood, metal chains, pinecones and sensory bottles available for them to discover. The Tweenies’ have been very interested in this area, taking time to explore the resources and sharing them with their friends.
