Yesterday toddlers had lots of fun exploring in the rain. They climbed the climbing frame before sliding down the slide into a sensory tactile. They also made lots of splashes in the puddles!

Following our focus which is: 'Transport' Toddlers have made their own traffic light crispbread! They used great physical skills when controling the knife to spread the cheese spread onto their crispbread! We talked about what each colour respresents, what colours we could see and and learnt the names of the fruits we used! :)
