We have brought in the buggy and cot which they have all been very interested in playing with. We have also been feeding our babies with things the Children have cooked up in our home corner kitchen!
We have developed our home corner more as this is what the children have been playing in a lot lately. We have added some wallpaper and the children have been busy getting messy with paint to make pictures to put on our shelf. They also made a beautiful vase of flowers using paint to make their handprints. We have moved our family tree into the home corner area and put it at the children’s level so they can look at their family pictures whenever they like. We have also added a curtain to imitate a window scene which makes it look very homely.
The children have been exploring different textures with their hands and feet. We have made stepping trays filled with flour, water, shaving cream and paint and the children had lots of fun walking through these and feeling the different textures and temperatures on their toes. They have also been exploring cooked spaghetti and using their fine motor skills to practise using tongs to pick the spaghetti up as well as dried foods such as lentils and chickpeas to post through small holes in pots and bottles.
The children have been developing their gross motor skills through lots of physical activities. We have been going walks down the heugh and to the park. We practicing our balancing skills on stepping logs and the balance beam as well as soft play. We have also been doing action songs and lots of dancing to the music.
