This Week at Downend

This week at Downend, nursery have been getting into the Halloween spirit with a spooky spaghetti sensory tray! The tray was filled with green pasta, crunchy tissue paper and the magnetic train track. The children picked up handfuls of the spaghetti and moved it around, feeling the different textures. Some children also took part in face painting this week, checking themselves out in the mirror as cats, skeletons and monsters! In the rooftop garden the children explored a pumpkin themed tray, using their hands to pick up the seeds and flesh inside. They also picked up the different coloured ice cubes and worked together to decorate the pumpkin with stickers!

Kindergarten this week have been learning all about pumpkins! The children took it in turns to pick them up, and answered questions – is it heavy, or is it light? Does it feel smooth or rough? Which one is the biggest, and which one is the smallest? Afterwards the children tried some carving, helping the adults scoop out the insides and decorate them with paper shapes! Kindergarten have also been getting creative in the art studio, painting and mark making with their peers. The children expressed themselves creatively, making lots of different shapes and patterns.

This week Pre-School have been making spooky skeletons! The children used glue to carefully stick down string onto paper bodies. As they worked they talked about their own bodies, naming the different bones and body parts that they knew! Pre-School have also been dressing up with their friends – trying on different masks, capes and hairbands and role playing as different characters. In the art studio the children have been getting messy with pumpkins and drawing their own using crayons!
