Learning About VE Day!


Happy Wednesday everyone!

In preparation for VE Day on Friday we’ve been learning all about it here in nursery! The children have enjoyed all of the different activities set out for them on our tuff tray (which you can also easily recreate at home!) We asked the children if they recognised any colours on the tuff tray and they were able to point out blue, white and red! They concentrated so well when copying the flag and were able to pick out the correct colours for the different sections completely independently which was so impressive!

They were also able to recognise different letters and numbers which was exciting to see. The children then moved on to designing their own medals and spoke about the different reasons why people might get medals. Their answers were “for winning and doing good things”. Finally, we moved on to making our own letters, discolouring them with teabags and water. The children enjoyed discussing why and how it made the paper change colour and shape. We all got so much out of this activity! Here at Leighs we always love to make education fun, channeling it all through play so that they’re constantly having an amazing time with their friends!

Lots of love as always!
