Herman is a friendship cake mixture which was been kindly donated by a parent. Practitioners from our Rugby nursery have supported the children in Great dais Pre School in following the instructions on how to look after the cake mixture and what ingredients need adding to it. The children are watching what happens to the mixture and will eventually cook and eat the cake.
Children from our nursery in Rugby transformed into tigers, lions, frogs and other jungle animals. The children from Pre-School minor enjoyed having their faces painted by practitioners, some children were very eager to be scary tigers whereas others were happy to be giraffes. When parents came to collect their children from their nursery in Rugby, they were welcomed by roaring tigers, lions and croaking froggies.
The children from their nursery in Rugby enjoyed coming to nursery dressed as a jungle animal. A practitioner from our Great dais Pre-school used animal puppets to enhance the story ‘Animal Bop’ and bring it to life. The children listened to the story with increase attention and participated by taking it in turns to hold the puppets.
After the story, our interactive light up dance which the children from their nursery in Rugby call ‘Boogie dais’ was all switched on ready for the children to show us their animal boogie moves. Children moved across the floor using the whole of their bodies to create intended movements, e.g. slithering across the floor like a snake.
Practitioners Carly and Sharon from our nursery in Rugby have created a real-life role-play area for the children in Pre School Minors. This area has enabled the children to use real food, which has helped provide a broad range of learning opportunities for the children, for example, weighing the pasta on the scales and looking at how much it weighs. Our little Master Chefs made their very own pizzas, which smelt delicious. They chose their favourite toppings and told one another what their likes and dislikes were.
A bright and colourful jungle has been created at our nursery in Rugby by practitioners in Pre School minors. Children have been walking through their jungle listening for animals noises, one child said “I think I hear a snake hisss hisss”. Practitioners have constructed a jeep from large cardboard boxes and with the help of the children they have painted it to look like a jeep. The jungle animals have enjoyed a bath in their pool of water and I even think the children may have joined them.
