“I’m writing, I’m wiping”

We love being outside on chilly days, today we got wrapped up and used the paint brushes to paint with water outdoors. We enjoyed finding different surfaces to paint on and using different methods like dabbing and splatting.

“I’m writing, I’m writing” (2016.17.66) one boy tells me. He then goes on to say “snake” while he’s mark making and encourages me to join in saying “Manda do snake”. Then when he’s finished he paints over his marks and tells me “I’m wiping. Wiping it”.

Number Hunt

Some of our children in Pre-Nursery are very interested in numbers at the moment. We are enjoying counting, looking at numerals and singing number songs. We decided to go on a number hunt to see what numbers we could find out in the environment.

There are lots of numbers and everywhere, our favourite were the street signs? I wonder what numbers you would find if you went on a number hunt?

Museum of Liverpool

What a fantastic afternoon at the Museum of Liverpool. We took a bus journey in to the city centre and walked to the museum. We got to explore the ‘Little Liverpool’ area which had lots of fun and interesting things to explore like keys and locks and sailing boats in the water way. Later we got to explore an old train and a model of the tracks, roads and tunnels in Liverpool. It was a very tiring day!

Dinosaur Footprints

We have made dinosaur footprints! We had lots of fun and we’re interested in the differences between dinosaurs, recognising that some had spikes and some had long necks.

We also loved exploring the texture of the paint and even made some hand prints ourselves!

Pumpkin Picking

Today we had the amazing experience of picking our own pumpkins. We travelled to the pumpkin farm on the mini bus and made sure to be wearing our wellies. When we arrived what did we find but lots of muddy puddles! We collected our pumpkins in wheelbarrows and got to walk through the fields. The best part was definitely jumping in the mud.
