Leigh's Nurseries Newcastle

Colour Monsters!


The Snapdragons have been looking at the Colour Monsters to encourage their developing social skills. We used the different feelings and emotions to discuss and share how we felt with each other. The Snapdragons were asked what makes them feel happy, sad, calm, angry, scared and loving. They took it in turns to share their own answers and found some similarities with their peers too.

This activity prompted the children to take turns in answering the questions and allowing each of their friends to share their own thoughts and feelings by being patient and listening well. This also helped the children recognise the feelings of others and take them into consideration too which enables children to form and build stronger relationships. The Snapdragons then went around nursery together to do the things that make them feel happy and explore new experiences that their peers enjoy to ultimately broaden their social skills in different areas of the nursery setting.

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xxx
