We are still continuing to learning Thank You, Good and Please in Makaton signs. Ask your child if they can show you the sings for Good and ever further still, Good, Morning, Everyone - come on children – we know you can.
For Yoga we had Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The stage is calling for some of our younger ones, who are so enthusiastic when retelling the story with the props.
Some of you may notice that your child's name card for drinks no longer has a picture on it. The children have been spending time learning to recognise their own names, in readiness for school. Please encourage your child to find their name at this time.
More practise has been had in writing their names. We have some laminated name cards for each child that indicates where to start learning to write the letters in their names.
On Thursday afternoon we walked to the outdoor area and we continued with building our den. We had lots of team work finding sticks to build it and make it bigger and bigger. We played a game of “Whats the time Mr Wolf” with lots of good counting and getting closer and closer to Mr Wolf. We then headed back to preschool but stopped at the orchard to do some £mole hill” stamping in the squidgy mud.
The children have shown a keen interest in talking about home and their families, so we have decided to make a display board of “Our Families”. We are asking everyone to bring us a photo of your child and their family and maybe a family tradition you may celebrate (Birthdays, Christmas, Holi, Christenings etc). The children really enjoy talking about home and its a great way for us all to recognise that all families are different and a good way for all children to value this from a young age.
