The children haven been showing a keen interest in making all sorts of Gromit pictures. They've been gluing and sticking all the different types of materials they could find.
In Yoga we had the story of 3 Little Pigs. There was plenty of stretching up high and curling down small and then individually the children showed each other a move which they had learnt during the story.
We had an obstacle course. The children had to follow arrows to know which way to go. They had to balance, jump and run - doing all of this whilst watching out for the crocodiles in the pond!
Bertha the Bus - the children have been working out phonically the beginning letter of objects inside our Preschool. We try to work on one letter at a time.
Potato printing was hugely popular. The children dug the potatoes from the allotment last Thursday afternoon and were soon cutting them up (under supervision) to make lovely shapes. They then enjoyed putting them in the paint to make lovely creative pictures.
Painting on the easel was great fun for a number of children. They enjoyed mixing the colours and seeing what new colours/shades they could make.
The garage and cars were very popular and the children have been enjoying racing the cars down the pipes to the finish line and then measuring with a tape measurer how far the cars have gone - excellent number recognition and estimating.
On Wednesday afternoon the children did their familiar Sing Up CD and then we did some body percussion learning 3 to 4 different beat patterns using their bodies. They enjoyed choosing the beats - we had to tap our legs, tap our heads, clap our hands and then stamp our feet - all of this repeated to them in a pattern.
For our Thursday afternoon outdoor session - it was rather wet, but that didn't stop us - we still ventured outside.
A huge thank you for the Sainsbury vouchers - we now have our new balance beams and cress seeds.
