This Week in Downend (W/C 3rd February 2020)

This week in Downend, Nursery have been having an icy themed week due to the cold weather we have been having. The children explored a sensory table, which was a frozen farm, the children moved the farm animals around the frozen scene. In the art area they made a frozen picture using white glitter and glue – it shined in the sunlight, just like snow! In cooking this week some children went into the dining room and decorated some biscuits to create the effect of an icy topping.

In Kindergarten this week the children have been spending time on their new area on the decking, as well as singing and dancing some children sat down on a comfy pillow and independently read some books. Kindergarten also visited the big garden this week where they enjoyed going down the slide and having a go on the obstacle course. Back inside the children have been exploring the small world area where they became doctors checking each others ears to make sure they were not unwell.

This week in Pre-School the children have been investigating the new resources on the decking. The children using jugs of water to pour down their new water wall and painted the go kart tyres with paint brushes and water. Back in the room the children have been making some amazing creations at the woodwork station using the hammers and tools. The children gave their new creations a big thumbs up!
