On Tuesday toddler room enjoyed learning about the Jewish festival ‘Purim’. The children enjoyed listening to the story at circle time about Queen Esther and enjoyed looking at how the festival is celebrated. The children then enjoyed using ICT Equipment to choose their own recipe to make hamantaschen biscuits. The children enjoyed making the triangle shape and then filling it with jam in the middle. The children used their fine motor skills to scoop the jam up and then place it into the middle.

To celebrate Purim in baby room we had our very own Masquerade party. We decorated our masks with a variety of colourful collage materials We then went to the sensory room and had our party.
