News & Events Weston Super Mare
Our 'Elfs' box!
We have borrowed an 'Elfs' (Early Learning Fire Safety) box from Weston-Super-Mare's Avon Fire and Rescue for a few weeks. The box contains lots of adult led games about fire safety, books and some fun toys and costumes. Here are some of the children already enjoying the contents of the box.
Who ate the playdough?
Preschool made some marshmallow playdough, which is completely edible. They mixed together some ingredients and chose to add some pink food colouring. They then got sticky playing with the playdough, and I'm sure, sneakily ate some.
The great frog escape!
Our rabbit Gizmo had a little visitor, Freddie the Frog. Freddie then went to visit Preschool and made a run for it, into our box of toy animals! Don't worry, Freddie is safely back in the garden now.
The Butterflies theme this month, August, is all things tigers. They have been painting on orange paper using black paint to make stripes and drawing with orange chalk on black paper.
Preschool have some new pets. Some wonderful garden snails. They found things in the garden to make a home for the snails, did some research on what they eat and built a little house from lollipop sticks. Then they made their own snails from pegs and their own snail trails using glue and glitter.
Pompom painting in Busy Bees!
The Busy Bees have been exploring painting with different items. They used pompoms and tweezers to make some interesting patterns. Can't wait to see what's next.
Butterflies Messy Play
The baby room have been having lots of fun and getting very messy with various activities, including painting with frozen paint, exploring different coloured tea bags and getting shaving foam everywhere.
Butterflies Garden Time
As the weather has become warmer, the children in Butterflies have been exploring powder paints in the garden. They have enjoyed using various objects to explore these paints, and enjoyed sitting in the tough spot, getting very wet. The Children also enjoyed eating their picnic tea in the garden too.
