Quack, quack, quack….having the opportunity to watch ducklings hatch and then be able to hold them, feed them and enjoy their very playful personalities is a remarkable opportunity, and this month that’s exactly what the children at Monkey Puzzle, Ridgmont Rd have been able to do. The ducks spent time in all rooms with babies and pre schoolers alike laughing as the ducks splashed around or fell asleep in their laps. The activities have been varied from conversations about the cycle of life, maths language when we looked at the ducks small foot prints against our own and amazing paintings and drawings all duck inspired. This is an annual event which captures everyone’s imaginations and hearts!
Big news this month was the amazing new floor that was laid in Blue Monkeys. The floor has a real life beach and covers the whole lino area of the baby room. Our youngest monkey’s have literally been exploring every inch of the sand, water and fishes and it really has brought a different dimension to their play.
The English heat wave has continued and we have had to use our imaginations to keep the children cool. Activities have included daily ice and water play, sprinkler fun, inside beaches, homemade fruit ice lollies, frozen pea play and cold foam sprayed into deep trays to delve into.
