We are still continuing to learn Hello Thank you and Good in Makaton signs. Get your child to show you these at home.
For Yoga this week we had the 3 Little Pigs. Our moves were house, build, roof, making ourselves thin and narrow to get down the chimney. Ask your child to show you their moves.
There has been lots of splashing in puddles. How big a splash can you make – let's jump!
The climbing frame became the bridge and the blue mats were the water. “Who is that trip, trapping under my bridge?” Oh No, careful – here comes the big, bad troll and he is very hungry!!!!!!
We have been practising the story of the 3 Little pigs – using props and a sequence of pictures which tell the story. The children learn the story from the pictures in the correct order and from the signs that we use.
The children have been having fun with their singing, making up their own songs. Such wonderful voices.
The children are also enjoying a stage outside to perform beautiful singing and dancing. They were also doing some lovely expressive dance moves. Great confidence building.
We've been on the bus outside too (lots of chairs) to lovely places, Santa Land, Dinasaur Land, Blue Park, Pink Park, the Beach and the Cinema. The children have excellent imaginations and have had brilliant imaginative play with lots of expressive language.
On Thursday afternoon we made a bird feeder at preschool using cereals. There was lots of thinking about how to keep the cereal in and how we could hang it in a tree. We then walked to our outdoor area remember the Golden Rules. We went exploring and noticed that we couldn't hear the sticks snapping under our feet anymore and worked out it was because it had been raining.
