Disco Dough

This week the children have been joining in with ‘Dough Disco’. This activity involves them manipulating the playdough to strengthen their fingers. They also have to concentrate to follow the instructions. It supports the children to develop an awareness of the different parts of their bodies. This is a pre-writing activity as it develops fine motor skills. If you would like to have a go at home here is the link…

If you would like to make playdough at home the recipe is…

2 cups of plain flour

1 cup of salt

2 tablespoons of oil

2-3 teaspoons of cream of tartar

2 cups of boiling water

food colouring

optional food flavouring to add smell

Write Dance

Here is another ‘Write Dance’ activity the children have been enjoying. This helps to develop their gross motor skills and co-ordination.

Inside fun…

The children have once again been busy inside. The children enjoyed mark making, painting, dancing and building. They have completed ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ jigsaws and so much more…

Outside fun…

The weather has turned much colder this week but we have still accessed the outdoor provision. Lots of children are now able to put their coats on without support. Please continue to support them to practice this at home. The next stage is for them to fasten their coats themselves and some children can do this already. Please remember to send them in appropriate clothing for the cold weather and make sure hats and gloves are named. Have a look a few of the things they have been doing outside…

Have a lovely weekend from the Nursery team
