This week at Regent Terrace, we've been diving into the tale of "Little Red Riding Hood".

The little ones have been delving into various vegetable tuff trays to explore how vegetables grow. They've also been using veggies in their pretend play, going shopping for lots of goodies for their grandmas.

Over in the construction area, the children have been super creative, constructing various homes and structures using a mix of tools and resources. There have been plenty of conversations on what makes houses strong and sturdy.

It's been a fun and educational week full of exciting discoveries and imaginative play!

Happy Easter Everyone!! 🐣

This week, the little ones have been immersed in the exciting world of the "enormous turnip" tale. They've been getting their hands dirty exploring various vegetables and planting their own veg patch in the garden.

Our farm yard tuff trays have been a hit, inspiring the children to create their own mini farmyards and dive into stories about vegetables and farms.

In the spirit of Easter, the children have been busy with fun Easter crafts, going on egg hunts in the garden, and even rolling eggs down hills to find the fastest one. It's been an egg-citing week as we get ready for the Easter bank holiday break! 🌟

🐛The Very Hungry Caterpillar 🐛

This week at Regent Terrace, the little ones have been absolutely enchanted by "The Very Hungry Caterpillar".

They've dived into the story, bringing it to life through imaginative play in our role play kitchen, pretending to munch through all the yummy treats. The children have also been making their own colourful caterpillars using playdough. 🐛

It's been amazing to witness their blossoming creativity and teamwork as they delve deeper into the world of the books. 📚 Not to mention, they've been super busy sharpening their mathematics skills through counting, exploring shapes, and comparing sizes while sorting their food from small to big! 🍎🍊🍉

Congratulations Lucy !

The three little pigs! 🐷🐷🐷

This week, our little explorers have been immersed into the story of "the three little pigs". The children had so much of fun exploring different sensory tuff trays, building structures/ houses with various materials.
The children have also been super creative, using different resources to make unique marks while drawing their own houses.
