Play Dough Disco

On Friday 2nd June, Nursery hosted a Play Dough Disco! Making and playing with play dough helps to develop finger strength and muscles in the hands. This is so important, because it means that the children will be able to write and draw much more easily. 

Parents and carers made play dough from scratch with the children, with lots of mixing, pouring and measuring. After we had made the play dough, the next step was to turn the music up! We patted, rolled, poked and squeezed our play dough to the beat of the music and had time for some freestyle moves too.  All the children loved making their own play dough and getting messy! Parents and carers called the event ‘fun’, ‘engaging’ and ‘insightful’ alongside many other lovely comments.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part in such a special event – we had a fantastic time!

In the spring term we planted potatoes and spring onions. In the summer term we dug them up, we were very excited. I wonder if we could use our potatoes and spring onions to make a potato salad…

In Nursery we have been learning the story of Little Red Riding Hood, we used props to support our story telling.

We really enjoy exploring our outside environment and use what we know from our everyday experiences to support our play.

In Nursery we like to explore the outside mud kitchen and make mud pies and cakes! We also really enjoyed our Tube Station role play area and the giant map. We have planned lots of routes to take all over London.
