This morning(Tuesday 17th December 2019) staff and children paid a visit to BUPA Blomfield House in Colchester. We had a wonderful time with the residents. We sang Christmas songs and did signing as well. We had refreshments together and the children spent time chatting with the residents. Resident then gave all the children and staff too some yummy sweets to say Happy Christmas to them. Thank you for letting us come and visit and we will see you all again soon. We hope to make a visit to see everyone once a term to enjoy crafts, ball games and singing together
Once a week or as often as possible, the children take part in Jabadao. This brings the chidlren together to enjoy fun movement, play and an opportunity to support children's development through movement play. Jabadao helps build strenght and co-ordination which involves activities that give experiences in both sensory and motor skills. Jabadao develops a sence of ourselves that allows children to explore moving on the floor, belly crawling etc. as well as running, spinning, tilting and buffering about. This also offers children the chance to experiment with different ways of moving about freely. Jabadao allows self-expression through music and movement which enables children to be included, this also produces personal, social and emotional development. communication and language.
We have lots of different activities taking place throughout the day from craft, painting and water play to our relaxing book garden and role-play area. The children can decide where to go and what to do with a little guidance from the staff. We have group activities where children can learn to take turns, share and encourage and supporting each other to enjoy the activity together.
