This Week in Downend (W/C 16th November 2020)

This week in Downend our Nursery children have been exploring different areas to play. Some children went outside and made some magic potions using outdoor resources that they found, such as, mud, leaves and flowers – not forgetting to add a splash of glitter to create the magic! Back inside other children have been role playing in the kitchen making cups of tea for their peers.

Kindergarten this week have been learning about emotions with their new emotions corner. The children made different faces in the mirror matching the pictures. In the Yurt the children have been helping to clean the windows by using cloths to clean away any smudges – great work Kindergarten! There was a re-enactment of “The Lion King” in the role play corner this week as the children used the small world toys to play with each other.

This week in Pre-School they have been getting artistic. They have been mixing paint together to create different colours, using paint to create fingerprint pictures and also helped to make playdough mixing the flour, salt, water, baby oil and food colouring.
