We have recently welcomed Olivia and Niko to Rainbow Montessori Nursery, West Hampstead.
Throughot the term we will be doing extra-curricular activities with the children so they can enhance their learning and development in a more fun manner! So far we have had Spanish and Japanese clubs, music, dancing and yoga classes and the children have absolutely loved it.
Over the last few weeks, we have had two very exciting visits to the library and the post office.
The children were encouraged to bring their favourite storybook to their show and tell activity before their visit to the libary and they felt very proud presenting their book to the other children, they were remarkable! The children were reminded about the rules of the library and how to choose and hold a book followed by a storytelling activity. Children were then given the opportunity to explore different books in the library. It was interesting to see how the older children guided the younger children in selecting the books such as selecting picture books for the little ones.
As for the visit to the post office, children were introduced to the postman theme through their storytelling activity in the school. The children were so excited to see the post office and greeted the postman with enthusiasm. They thoroughly enjoyed taking part in delivering letters for one of their activities. During the review about their visit to the post office, the older children managed to describe some of the duties carried out by the postman while the younger children were able to name the actions that the postman needs for delivering their letters, which was wonderfull!
The activities for each club are as follows:
Yoga Classes: stretching and bending exercise
Spanish Club: greeting each other, hello and weather song
Japanese Club: counting from 1 to 10A
Art and Craft: Masterpiece: bookmark & post box
Music Club: Musical chairs, exploring different musical instruments
Cooking Club: French Apple pie
Dance Club: Dancing expressively to the beat and acting out different animals
We are delighted to see how well the children get actively engaged in various clubs and activities !
