Parachute Play!


Playing with the parachute is always a massive highlight in the nurseries. The Sweetpeas worked together as a team to make the parachute move whilst singing and dancing to a range of different songs. They loved adding different objects into the middle of the parachute such as teddies and balls to see how they moved. We even took turns to sit in the middle of the parachute – it’s safe to say there were lots of giggles and excitement as they watched all of the different colours move around them!

We used this as an opportunity to improve upon how we say different colours – the children attempted to repeat the various ones that they could see in front of them and we were really proud of their amazing efforts! It didn’t take long for some of the older children to spot just how much fun the Sweetpeas were having so they asked if they could join in! They loved sharing the experience with one another – the younger ones particularly enjoyed having the older children there to help and guide them. The favourite moment for all of them was the parachute being thrown up into the air allowing them the chance to hide underneath it as it fell back down again!

Lots of love and have a fab weekend!
