Mad about Minibeats

On the 29th April we said goodbye and good luck to Miss Carrier as she left 2gether to start her new jobs leading a nursery in Leeds. 2gether is now supervised by Mrs Williamson and Mrs Carpenter with Mrs Smith overseeing the provision. The routine and structure of the session have remained the same

Over the last couple of weeks the children have become fascinated by the minibeasts they are discovering in their gardens and the outdoor area. The children have especially enjoyed learning about bees. Through adult led activities the children have created some wonderful artwork and at snack time tasted some locally sourced honey. Snack for the week consisted of honey on bread, toast and mixed in with greek yoghurt. The children loved exploring the texture of honey both with their hands and their tongues!!

This week the children have been learning about spiders and can sing along to Incy Wincy Spider really well. With the playdough out on the table the children had a go at creating their own spiders. The children also made their own spider webs by rolling marbles in a tray of paint. Through out these activities the children were encouraged to talk about what they were doing, using the new vocabulary they are quickly picking up.

The children also had two special visitors, the year 5 sports ambassadors. They taught the children how to kick and throw a ball by aiming it into a small net. This activity was built up so the children were challenged to aim the ball at a named colour, consolidating their colour recognition. The children loved the challenge and can’t wait to show off their skills at home.

If you have any queries or would like to know more about our 2 year old provision please pop into the office or contact Mrs Smith.
