As its Mental Health Awareness week the children in Toddlers have been talking about their feelings and emotions during circle time this morning. The staff started the activity with some rainbow breathing exercises, the children carefully followed each colour breathing in and out as they went. The staff then began asking the children how they were feeling and asking them to find the cushion that matched their emotion.
Here are some quotes from the children:
"I feel happy!" πŸ˜€
"This one is sad" 😒
"Red one is Mad!" 😑
"This one is silly" πŸ€ͺ

Would like to say a huge thank you to our Outdoor Lead Sarah Green for our amazing training session yesterday evening. The staff shared some really lovely stories about their earliest memories playing outside as a child, making mud pies and perfume, climbing trees and building dens. They created activities for the children for the following day in the mud kitchen using fresh flowers. The staff also got involved with some whittling and starting "fairy fires" using cotton wool. I am looking forward to seeing all the wonderful activities all the staff will come up with! πŸŒΏπŸ‚πŸŒΎπŸŒ»

Of the 1.3 billion families in the UK that are eligible for Tax Free childcare, around 800,000 are not claiming it. We've popped a few facts about the scheme below, but you can find more info by heading to the link provided below πŸ‘ͺ

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¦ Tax free childcare is a government initiative which helps eligible working parents with the cost of childcare.
πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦ For every Β£8 you pay into an online account, the government will add an extra Β£2, up to Β£2000 per child per year.
πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§ Tax-free childcare can be used to help cover the cost of nurseries, breakfast and after school clubs.
Tax-free childcare can help you cover costs of childcare for children up to 11 or 17 if they are disabled.

Chinese New Year πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ
Today in Preschool we have been taking part in different activities related to Chinese New Year. We made dragons using red and gold playdough and used different materials to add to it. Next up was a sensory bin that included red and gold items and chopsticks to use, as you can see we had a really good try at it. In the afternoon we read about the story of the Emperor wanting to name different years after animals. Finally, we finished the day off by practicing our chopstick skills when eating our chicken and sweetcorn noodle soup.
