On April 7 we ran an Easter event for under 5s and their grown ups at Normanby. We had a wonderful time enjoying songs, stories, hunting for clues to find the Easter Bunny and lots more.
In planning sessions for under 5s we aim to provide opportunities for children to learn through play, to communicate and of course to have fun.
In this session we shared an interactive reading of the story ‘Sunny Bunny’, by Penny Little and Sean Julian, using props, actions and noises to act out the story together with the children.
We also created an Easter sensory table for children to explore and initiate their own play. This encouraged them to touch, listen to egg shakers, to count bunnies and chicks and to make a game hiding them inside eggs or boxes for another child to guess what was inside.
We also added plastic eggs to our water tray and painted bunnies using cotton wool and finished with some very energetic action songs.
Normanby Tots sessions like this run monthly during termtime on selected dates: 9 May, 6 June and 4 July 1.30-2.30pm and at North Lincs Museum weekly on Fridays during term time 1.30-2.30pm.
Come and join us!
