In Yoga this week we did the Three Billy Goats Gruff. Lets see everyone's angry troll face. Who's that trip trapping over my bridge? We played some new group games "In and Out the Dusty Bluebells" and "Farmers in his Dell."
We went to Stanton Drew Primary School to teach them our story of "Little Rabbit Foo Foo". The children confidently told our story and enjoyed signing with the class and the class shared the story back to us. The children were really pleased to have break time there and played with the older children and watched them play.
The children have been busy making Mother's Day crafts, they've all enjoyed doing their cards independently and lots showed good concentration and creative skills.
The pets have been popular this week, lots of children have been taking them for walks, feeding and making them homes from boxes. We spoke about the importance of exercising animals and them eating only their own food as different foods can make them ill. The children showed a huge amount of care for their animals.
Outside we had an obstacle course. The children took turns to step through a funnel, under a table and around the cones. This gave the children an opportunity not only for physical skills but to learn positional language too.
On Wednesday afternoon, the children enjoyed our warm up song and moves and they even made up some of their own. We played a game of "dressing ourselves" with a hats & scarves in teams - practicing helping and supporting each other.
On Thursday afternoon we walked to the allotments to see what has changed. Lots of weeds needed digging up but with all of us getting stuck in, we soon had it cleared. We found the scarecrow and put him back the right way up ready to scare off the birds when the strawberries and potatoes start to grow.
On Friday we enjoyed football games which was run by Julie's husband. The children showed good listening skills and followed instructions and controlled the ball brilliantly.
