To celebrate Mother’s Day the children created beautiful flower cards using their hands as the petals and pictures of themselves as the middle of the flower. The children enjoyed making these as it involved a gooey sensory experience getting their hands into the paint.
World book day was celebrated throughout the nursery with the children dressing up as their favourite book characters. We had Peter Pan, pirates and princesses. The children enjoyed listening to their favourite books at story time.
Butterflies and Ladybirds
Our book of the month for March is Piranha don’t eat Bananas by Aaron Blabey. Brian the Piranha loves bananas. He tries to convince his friends to try some fruits and vegetables, but they prefer chomping on people’s feet, knees and bums! He keeps asking them until they finally give in and try a fruit platter. Will his friends like it and switch to eating more fruits and veggies? The story is a fun and cheeky rhyming book which encourages children to try new things and embrace their individuality.
We started March off with World Book day. It was amazing seeing the children dressed as their favourite characters and bringing in their special stories from home.
For Mothers Day this year we made special cards with flowers on. We planted bulbs in decorated pots to give as presents. We have really enjoyed hearing the children telling us about the bulbs which have begun to sprout.
In March we also celebrated St. Patrick’s Day. We celebrated in true messy style with our festive green, sparkly foam in the garden.
