The Mulberry Bush

At Locks Heath this week the Elderberries have been developing their team work skills. These activities have been planned to encourage the children too communicate together while both working towards the same goal. We have been completing obstacle courses while transporting water, being careful not to spill any, placed balloons between our's and a friend's head, trying not too drop the balloon, and finally a team game where we transport a ball on some guttering, being careful not to drop the ball out of the guttering. All of the preschoolers loved these activities activities and not only developed their communication towards each other, but also improved their spacial awareness, caring and consideration towards others and developed our friendships together. ...

The Mulberry Bush

Locks Heath
Raspberries have recently been making developments to their upstairs environment and their sensory room.
The children have loved using the sequin frames to make marks and explore the different textures on the wall.
They have also been showing lots of interest in dressing up and occupations which enabled us to change our role play area to include a Police and Fire station as well as a doctors surgery.
This links in with our British Values and has opened up lots of conversations about people who help us and what their role are within our communities.

30 Days of Wild!

June 1, 2018 5:21 pm

The Mulberry Bush Locks Heath is taking part in The Wildlife’ Trusts’ ’30 Days Wild’. For the month of June we are encouraging our children to step outside and take a look around at all the wonders that nature brings! We will be taking trips outside as well as bringing the wild in.

We shall be completing ‘Random Acts of Wildness’ each day at Nursery  and today the children used their looking eyes to spy a little Robin in the trees that was singing. We were hoping that you may also like to continue with this at home -

On Saturday 2nd of June – Can you take part in a nature sound walk? Days can get so busy that sometimes we forget to stop and listen! Can you hear the sound of birds singing? A rustling in the trees? Let us know on Eylog!

On Sunday 3rd of June – Watch the birds live on the Wildlife Trusts Bird Feeder live webcam

Please let us know how you get on either talking to your Key Person or by popping a post on Eylog! You can also post your pictures on Instagram using the hashtags #30DaysWild and #themulberrybushwild to share

We look forward to seeing and hearing about your wild times!
