Nursery News

Posted: 10th July 2020



Babies have been practising their fine and gross motor skills this week, using their hands and fingers to manipulate the locks and latches on the busy boards and doing inset puzzles. Outdoors, they have climbed and balanced on the trikes and the wooden logs. They have enjoyed playing ball games, learning to catch, throw and kick.


In Bluebells this week we have been doing lots of shapes based activities, matching shapes, colouring shapes and naming them.  We have developed our fine motor skills threading pasta and drawing or even writing words.


This week in Poppies we had lots of fun making precious stones using nail polish to paint them. We then practised our fine motor skills applying nail polish to a cardboard hand. We spent lots of time in the garden, digging, organising campfires, riding the bikes and playing with the dinosaurs and happy land.
