The children from Squirrel room at Broussa have been splashing in paint puddles today. They enjoyed filling and emptying with jugs and pouring the water through the powder paint seeing the colours run and make puddles. They were very excited and used words such as "splash", "more" and "water" as they explored.

Following on from the childrens interests we have been focusing a lot of our activities in the Badger room around Mini beasts!! The children have enjoyed exploring the garden area with magnifying glasses looking for real insects, they joined in with a number 'splat' game where they had to match up the number on the dice to the number on the insect and then splat it, which they really enjoyed!!! They have been getting creative making butterfly sun catchers for the windows, exploring the tuff trays filled with insects and various messy play using tweezers to grab the bugs and creating their own bugs from play dough!!! :)

Eid Mubarak from all the children in the Squirrel room at Broussa! We have had lots of fun today making crescent moons and decorating them with glitter and sequines. We have also been making our own onion bhajis mixing together the spices and learning about smells and scents. The children thoroughly enjoyed tasting them at the end and dipping them in the riata!

The children in Owl room Broussa have been learning all about pirates over the last two weeks. Today they have been very creative firstly they looked different types of maps and shared their knowledge about them: "they tell you where to go" and "x marks the place where the treasure is." were some of the comments made. The children then had a go at making their own maps using different coloured pens.
Some of the owls have also been making pirate ship portholes. To do this they were asked to imagine that they were on a pirate ship and craete a picture of what they could see from the window.
To further practise their early writing skills the children also used artificial parrot feathers in coloured sand to make marks. we're sure that you can all agree that all of the creations and artwork look fantastic!

The Rabbit children took Barry the travelling bear with them to share their experience, he had lots of fun, the children are becoming more confident climbing on large equipment independently.
