Valentine's Day


Our Ladybird Room (2-3 year olds) have been thinking about feelings and how different experiences may make them feel.
They may be happy, sad, excited or worried about something happening in their life  - maybe a new baby, moving house, a birthday or a special outing. At this age children may be feeling all of the emotions mentioned for any given experience.
So Kelli and the team planned some ‘valentine’ activities to enjoy whilst talking about how they are feelings. The children were invited to wear red or pink for the day on Thursday and they made some lovely collages using lots of different textures of materials. They also made some shortbread hearts which involved lots of measuring and weighing skills. The feeling was definitely pleasure when they were eating them and sharing them with their families at the end of the day.
