The children have been busy making and decorating various things for the Chinese New Year. Chinese fans, lanterns and a big dragon have been made. Along with a lovely song to sing along to. The children also had fun trying to use chopsticks and trying to pick up different shapes with them.
The Yoga session held on the Monday was a huge success - again!
On a Wednesday afternoon we had a music session and this time the children played the instruments to the Billy Goats Gruff story and this gave the children huge smiles and was a real hit with them.
We have new talking telephones outside which are also proving to be a huge hit
The children have had a busy week making pizzas. They got to make the dough and put their favourite toppings on. Yummy.
Lots of fun was also had making necklaces out of dried pasta shapes. The children threaded the string through the shapes to make some lovely designs.
Italian flags painted by the children were all around the preschool.
The children turned part of the inside area into a Pizza Hut restaurant where they could order pizzas and garlic bread to takeaway. The children were keen to use real money, so a member of staff printed some notes off the internet - if only it was that easy!
The children also had a cash wash, so afer their trip to the Pizza Hut they could take their cars into be cleaned. A builders merchants was also made where they could go to work to earn the money for Pizza Hut.
Yoga was popular again with lots of smiles on everyone's faces.
The climbing frame was also lots of fun with the children usining up lots of energy.
Happy New Year and a big welcome back to all our children, parents and carers.
The first week back has been very busy. Children returning after the break have been very excited about coming back. The team have been busy welcoming lots of new children to the setting.
