This week, the children have been immersed in Christmas activities to decorate the nursery.
It all started with a very cold Monday morning and the children were very excited to discuss the snow they had watched fall the night before. There was snow in our mud kitchen, which they were keen to explore and make their own potions. It was lovely to observe how inquisitive they have become.
We have been focusing on the characteristics of playing and exploring, active learning and creating and thinking critically. The children have been using these characteristics whilst learning how to make paper chains and designing their own Christmas trees from boxes and loose parts; having their own ideas and working together as a team.
We have been focusing on our cutting and fine motor skills.
