**Little Ferns Day Nursery Clydach**

We’ve had a busy few weeks at nursery. It has been lovely to see new faces joining our setting and settling in to routine. Last week the children enjoyed using corks to make Poppy’s for Remembrance Day. We had lots of fun activities where children had to use their fine motor skills like placing body parts on the potato heads and sensory play with ice and snow.
This week we have been making pasta necklaces, shadow pictures where we turned off the lights and used LED candles to look at our shadows and jelly play. The children liked to feel the jelly wobble on their hands and squeeze it between their fingers. We love messy play at nursery and it’s even better when we have a taste too 😋

It was poppy madness here at Little Ferns Cwmparc on Friday. All children painted their own poppy pebble to which we plan to take them out into the community to hide very soon. The children also created small poppy badges to take home. There were a variety of poppy activities laid in the tuff trays also for the children, giving them different learning experiences to help support remembrance Sunday.
Daisy Davies the hamster came to visit us this morning. The children has so much fun taking care of her and watching her get physical in her ball around the setting.
Gentle reminder for parents for children to wear odd socks on Wednesday to help support Anti Bullying week (pictures to follow) And also to wear pyjamas for Children in Need on Friday.
Thank you all again for your continued support

Little Ferns Glenboi. Last week we celebrated Diwali and Rememberance Day. We promoted equality, diversity and inclusion through our multicultural experiences.
For Diwali we made salt dough tea light holders. We measured, poured, mixed, moulded, rolled the dough we had made to form the tea light holder. We later decorated the tealight holders. The candles were lit and we had a story about Diwali.
For Rememberance Day we had toy soldiers in our sand pit, red petals in the water tray, army costumes for dressing up, we made a den. We engaged in a craft activity making a red flowers called a poppy. "Lest we forget".

All children have settled back into routine extremely well after the half term holidays. We took part I the Diwali celebrations yesterday by creating our own lanterns. The children used a variety of items to help enhance colour recognition and their creative development. We have welcomed in the winter weather by creating our very own magic snow so children had fun feeling the different textures in the messy tray. The children also had lots of fun creating their fire work collages and enjoyed telling us their experiences watching fire works on Monday. Thanking you all for all your hard work this week boys and girls. Da iawn I chi gyd.
