Toys with wheels

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Things are going to get a bit messy in nursery! Outside we’ll be riding through different colours of paint in puddles and exploring what happens when colours mix. Inside we’ll be printing and colour mixing with car tracks.

Don’t worry, we have the children’s wellies and aprons close to hand but do remember to send your child in old ‘nursery wear’ clothes in case accidents happen. Please send in some wellies if you haven’t yet.

Here’s a sneaky peak at our indoor learning areas …

You can support this learning at home by:

  • naming vehicles when out and about and talking about their special features e.g motorbikes have handle bars
  • mixing paint or play dough colours and talking about what happens
  • watching some ‘Fireman Sam’ together and talking about what might happen at the end of the story/ episode

We talked about what the parts were called and what they did.

We pressed the button on the key. We had a fab time!
