Enjoying the Lovely Weather!

Written by Childwall. Posted in General



This week we have all been enjoying the lovely weather! Our bumbles made their own water shower to keep all of our children cool. Our worker bee’s enjoyed joining in the fun washing their dolls and brushing their hair under the shower. Bumbles have also been focusing on reflections out in the garden, pointing to different body parts and experimenting with different facial expressions.

Reading Together

Written by Garston. Posted in General



After a trip to the treasure island story barn, Honey Pot Garston shared information with children and other staff on how important it is to read with children. All our children have had lots of fun reading independently, reading in pairs and reading together as a group (some of the children even enjoyed reading to the class pretending to be an Early years practitioner)

Making Mud Cakes

Our busy bee’s had lots of fun in our mud kitchen making mud cakes. Firstly the children worked as a team to collect flowers to decorate their cakes. The children then scooped up lots of mud in their own buckets and mixed with water. Finally, they put the mud in the cake cases and decorated them with pretty flowers

Busy Bees Do Dough Disco!

Written by Aigburth. Posted in General



Sinead’s key group have been focusing on developing their fine motor skills & found a fun way to do it. The children loved moulding their dough along to a dough disco song! Along with Sinead, they prodded, patted, squeezed and rolled their dough along to the music! There was certainly a lot of hand strength displayed by the children! If you would like to try this at home, just google dough disco!

Bug Hunt with Zoolab

Written by Aigburth. Posted in General



We loved our visit to Zoolab! The theme was bug hunt! The children were all very excited to join Alex the Zoolab ranger in the garden to do a bug hunt. We all worked together to search in lots of places in the garden to see what creepy crawlies we could find! We all took them back inside to share what we had found. Alex then showed us lots of different creatures including a snake, a stick insect, a tarantula and a millipede! Some of us were very brave stroking and holding them!.

Written by Garston. Posted in General



The children in our Busy Bee’s room had so much fun having a trip to the park! We wore of high-vis jackets for our safety and we had lots of fun pushing each other on the swings, taking turns on the slides and on the see-saw in the lovely sunshine!

Honey Bees go to the park!

Written by Aigburth. Posted in General



Our Honey Bees enjoyed a lovely visit to Sefton park recently. On their way there they were very excited to see a police car and the police officers were very kind in coming over to speak to them. As they walked through the tunnel, along with Rachel the children shouted and laughed as they heard their voices echo. They also pointed to the artwork painted on the inside walls of the tunnel. The children were very excited to feed the ducks at the park and were fascinated by them swimming along on the water. The pigeons also enjoyed the food that we took for the ducks too! The children were also very lucky to spot some small ducklings and goslings.

Experimenting with colour

Written by Aigburth. Posted in General



In Busy Bees, Sarah’s group have had lots of fun experimenting with colour. They did a ‘walking colours’ experiment first of all; the children were all very excited to mix the food colouring and water together, carefully measuring it out before pouring it into different jars. They added plain tissue paper, touching each colour and were very surprised to see the colours rise up the paper and mix with the other colours. The children thought it looked like a beautiful rainbow! They also did a lovely ice painting activity, with each piece of ice being a different colour. The children talked about how cold the ice was and it was melting because it was warm. They used their paint brushes to mix the ice around as it melted and talked about what colours they had created from mixing two together.
