We are still learning the Makaton signs for Thank You, Good and Hello. Get your child to show you at home.
For Yoga we had the Brave Knight who saved all the people trapped in the castle from the bad dragon. The people were locked up so the knight tricked the dragon away from the castle and to a cave, where he became trapped and the people were saved. Lots of fire breathing dragons and brave knights - and lets end off with a party. We need to make sandwiches and mix cakes, first slow and then super fast.
Lots of sharing of stories and books - getting together in the tepee, picking books and sharing of stories. The children were making up their own stories from the pictures and some of the stories were from memory. Very good story tellers.
We have been enjoying the lego and creating cages to keep the dinosaurs in. Good imagination and lots of talk about how to create, what to create, what to use, will this work, try this and let me help.
Skittles - learning how best to use the ball to knock down the most skittles, rolling, bouncing, throwing up high, down low and kicking. Understanding about waiting your turn and helping to put the skittles back up. Great team work.
On Thursday afternoon we went on a conker hunt. We hunted everywhere and ended up at the Stone Circles. The children have fun around the stones whilst learning about their history.
