We have had lots of fun in the Toddler Room this week!

We love getting to explore and play outside in our garden! Playing with instruments, banging, tapping, shaking and listening to the different sounds we could make and trying to talk about whether it was quiet or loud. Using water and paintbrushes to paint and make marks on the floor and having our snack on the picnic benches.

Back inside, we have been using what we have seen in the garden to continue learning about insects and where they live, and using tissue paper and glue to create pictures of the mini beasts we found.  We have also really enjoyed role play, being the doctor listening to our babies heart and caring for our baby dolls.
