The Nursery children have been to their first outside school trip this week on Thursday. We went to a Restaurant to review and enhance our knowledge about last term’s topic, senses. We were lucky to have an opportunity to visit one of our Nursery parents’ restaurant and to receive the best level of care.
The children were able to gain a variety of experiences and develop many learning skills within the trip. Independence together with communication and social skills were demonstrated in children’s behaviour when communicating their personal and hygiene needs or when adjusting to the new situations when being apart from their parents. Following instructions, one of the fundamental parts of the learning in Nursery, was demonstrated by the children on the trip as well.
The children had an opportunity to watch the cook preparing the biscuit dough. The children then explored their sense of touch when working with the dough, cutting different shapes out. Some children even used their sense of taste whilst working with the dough. The children demonstrated good fine motor skills and imagination within this activity. The lovely outside play area was an opportunity to use our energy and run around after an intensive cooking session. It was a pleasure to watch the children running around laughing and being happy. We took the opportunity of being outside to review our knowledge about senses through the senses card game. Chicken soup and pasta for lunch made all the children happy and the biscuits turned out to taste delicious! We got apple pies and the rest of the biscuits to take home with us to share with our families.
I was really pleased to see the Nursery children being truly happy and enjoying their trip. I would like to say a big thank you to Olga for hosting us with such care and to all the parents who supported the children’s supervision on the trip.
