Happy Valentine’s Day ❤

Today, we celebrated Valentine’s Day with fun and learnt about What is Valentine’s Day and how we celebrate it. We talked about Valentine’s Day history, food, gift, activities and ways to give the love messages to our parents and peers.

The children loved the idea of giving chocolate to friends and go to restaurants with parents on Valentines Day. Some of them pretending to order from the menu, eating chocolates while others enjoying to taste oranges. The children gave each other hugs and cuddles to show that they care for each other. All the children did an amazing job and had so much fun.

This week, Inventors have been creating their own prints for their loved ones, the children drew on the paper someone special to them and printed hand prints on the other side with red and pink paint. The practitioner supported some of the children with cutting around the heart shape. The children enjoyed doing the activity and talked about their loved ones, this supported the children with expressing themselves and expressive arts and design.

Resources Used:

Paint
Colouring pencil's
Glitter
Scissors
White card

Chinese new year 🧧

For this activity we have red, green and yellow coloured rice with gold glitter, wooden skewers used as chop sticks and coloured lolly sticks.

During the activity explorers used the wooden skewers and coloured lolly sticks to move and mix the coloured rice together. Explorers also used their hands to mix the rice together, feeling the texture. Practitioners demonstrated how to use the chops sticks and some explorers put them between their fingers and attempted to pick up the rice. We spoke about the colours we could see, such as, red, green, yellow and gold, some explorers repeated the colour names, red, green and gold.

🇨🇳🧧🥠🪭 Chinese New Year Fans 🪭🥠🧧🇨🇳

Today the explorers participated in an activity creating Chinese New Year fans. We used paper plates cut in half, red and yellow paint and red wooden lolly sticks. The explorers chose independently which colour they wanted to use first and second by pointing to the colour. Some of the children said the colour names. The explorers were able to hold the paint brush and make marks on their fans some used a dabbing motion and some used an up and down motion to create their fans.

This year we are welcoming the year of the dragon for Chinese New Year. In celebration of this toddlers explored and learnt about Chinese traditions and culture. They used tongs to put the noodles into their bowls and then they used chopsticks to feed the babies. Toddlers used their senses to feel different textures of the food such as the sweet peppers, oranges and limes. Toddlers also ate some watermelon and gave their babies some too. They learned new words like chopsticks, sweet peppers, lantern and dragon.This activity allows children to develop different skills and understand how some cutleries like chopsticks and tongs are used.

Children Mental Health Week

Let's connect and support children expressing their emotions daily.

Today our children took part in a variety of activities on how they express their emotions. They expressed through messy activities, arts and crafts and through fine motor skills.

As a group we discussed our emotions and about our health during our come together time. Most of the children expressed their feeling through their facial expression e.g sad, happy, angry, excited etc and others using makaton signs which was lovely to see.
