Our weekly Makaton signs are: Thank you, Good, Hello Song, Good Morning Everyone and Hello – ask your child to show and share.
Lots of Easter crafts have been going on this week - Easter Baskets, Easter Biscuits and Easter Nests. Keep looking in those drawers to see what hidden gems are lurking inside.
We have had a very good response to pictures of our families. Please come and have a look. We still have a few more that we are looking forward to seeing.
Yoga – Little Rabbit Foo Foo – fantastic Gooney faces and lots of good actions. We have some very good story tellers, remembering the sequence of events, which come first and next and also remembering all the actions. We also have some very good “yogis”. We always warm up with a game of Fish, Chips and Peas, and wind down with a good game of Traffic Lights (watch out the police are about).
Golden Rules – we have been going through our Golden Rules. These are to keep us safe and happy – so everyone can have a good time whilst playing at Preschool. Check with your child and see if they can tell you what our Golden Rules are, and why we have them.
We had a baking day on Thursday morning with all the children getting involved. We made Easter Nests with lots of discussion around hot/cold and melting chocolate and counting eggs into the nests. We also made Easter biscuits – yummy!!
On Thursday afternoon we walked to our Outdoor Area and in the field they were putting up a new fence. We all had a go at sitting in the tractor and watching how the fence stakes were put into the ground. We went onto our Outdoor Area and explored for a while before doing an egg hunt – what fun!
On Friday we had an Easter Egg Hunt – see how many eggs you can find.
