Keeping the children safe is our number 1 priority, so our annual Easter Egg hunt with families was this year replaced with fun and exciting Easter themed activities throughout the week , including finding the eggs hidden around the setting.
We also enjoyed preparing for and taking part in our own Carnival, as celebrated in many cultures, usually before Lent, involving public celebrations, parades and street parties. We made homemade masks and provided the children chance to dress up before we had a parade around pre-school to ‘chase away the winter and welcome spring’. We finished off our busy morning with a yummy doughnut.
We have been encouraging the children to engage in risk-taking whilst considering their own and others safety. We have also been positiviely reinforcing their wishes and choices to look after each other and their pre-school this week.
The children were invited to dress as their favourite characters for a morning filled with familiar stories, active story telling, story creating and opportunities for reading and enjoying books throughout the setting.
