For Yoga this week we had “Come on Daisy”. We need to go swimming, play with the frog jumping around, but oh no, quick, we need to run. Something is getting closer, oh its mumma duck. Come on Daisy – stay close.
The world globes have been out this week, which has opened up lots of questions, hot and cold places to live, places that the children have visited such as Mallorca, Cornewall, Disneyland Paris. How did you get there? Fly, car, boat, walk and bus. Animal – what animals live in hot or cold places.
We've had lots of group play around ponies. Grooming, jumping and leading them into the trailers and some fantastic neighing sounds.
Shaving foam mixed with glitter – what fun. Squelch, squeeze, ooze through your fingers. How does it feel? Is it smooth? Iis it runny or lumpy? What shapes can you make? What can we use to make patterns? Let's draw with our fingers.
On Thursday afternoon we went to our Outdoor Area. On the way we saw a huge pond filled with tadpoles. We sat and watched for quite a wile talking about the frog life cycle (which we will continue this term). The childre were very excited and can't wait to keep looking for the changes. At our outdoor area we had some large pieces of clear plastic and shook the bushes with the plastic underneath to see what bugs we could find (ands and flies only!). However, under our logs we found beetles, slugs, woodlice, centipete, spider, worms and ants. We finished with a game of “What's the Time Mr Wolf and walked safely home.
