This week, the children at the Tunbridge Wells Nursery and Montessori Preschool have been doing all the different enhancements that Busy Bees offer. We have had a full week of Wake and Shake, Babble to Chatter, Problem Solving to Mathematics, Shake and Write and Busy Bees Go Wild.
In our Under 2's room we have been dancing independently and showing off our different moves, our Babble to Chatter card was 'I can tell a story' which encourages the children to say the words of the different objects, our maths card was 'Sand Play Game' which helps our children to count the amount of sand that is going into the bucket and we did messy activities using different resources.
In our 2-3's room we used our Babble to Chatter card 'Puppets' where we used our puppets to tell our friends a story, the maths card we used was 'Rainfall' and we adapted this into the water tray looking at the different amounts of water in each container and talking about size. For Busy Bees Go Wild we hunted around the garden for sticks whilst reading the story of 'Stick Man'.
In our Preschool room we enjoyed Wake and Shake as this helps prepare them for the day. We encouraged the children to lead this which gave them a sense of responsibility. The Babble to Chatter activity we did was 'About Time' and this helped children think about what they need for the day ahead e.g. nappies, vests, clothes to dress their dolls. Shake and Write improves the children's gross motor movements. They joined in with the Train Track song today and all of them joined in with this. We made our own Worm House for Busy Bees Go Wild and the children loved seeing the worms up close and how the move.
