Kings Norton Babies have been exploring the theme, ‘Under the Sea’, through sand and water play.
They really enjoyed the texture of the sand through their fingers and filling and emptying various buckets and containers with sand and water. The Babies have also taken part in group painting activities, practicing their hand grasp to produce sea creature pictures. We encouraged the children to interact with each other, to help welcome our new starters and build relationships with their new friends.
