😁TAPESTRY OBSERVATION OF THE DAY😁 Jasmine sat in the home corner and began role playing with the baby. Jasmine picked up a bottle saying 'boccle' then began feeding the baby and as the inside of the bottle was beginning to disappear she said 'boccle empty.' Jasmine turned and picked up a egg shaped rattle saying 'egg, round' put it to the baby's mouth saying 'eating chocolate egg.' Jasmine turned the baby round and said 'dirty poo, wipe it' and began wiping the baby's bottom. There was a muslin cloth near by and Jasmine picked it up saying 'blanket' then put it over the baby covering the face saying 'do it like this.' The bottle rolled under the blanket and Jasmine pulled it out saying 'boccle move, baby night' giving the baby a rock on the back looking up at a carer saying 'baby sleep.' Jasmine then picked up the baby saw the eyes opened and said 'awake, hello baby.' #communication #language #roleplay #knowledgeandunderstanding #speech #opportunities

👭Forming friendships👭 Daisy was playing a 'chase game' with Flora in the garden, they were playing really nicely together and giggling at one another. Daisy and Flora both walked over to the mud kitchen together and started playing with another child. They were talking to each other, taking turns with the saucepan and sprinkling in the soil, pretending to bake cookies together. Daisy and Flora have formed a special friendship recently #specialfriendships #seekingothers #sharinginterests #beingimaginative #roleplay

🌳 TRIP TO THE PARK 🌳 Verity and Harrison enjoyed their trip to the park with the baby room this afternoon. They both enjoyed the swings and see-saw, giggling with excitement. Harrison had confidence to climb up the steps to the slide on his hands and knees and was very happy when he reached the bottom. #fun #laughter #pse #kuw #safety #exploring #pd
