Makaton Signs. We are still continuing to learn Good, Thank You and Please. We have been learning these for a very long time. The reasoning behind this, is that we are trying to get the children to do them automatically when they come into preschool. We are also learning other signs during our preschool sessions, for example, “Milk” at snack time. Ask your child to show you what signs they know.
For Yoga this week we had Goldilocks and theThree Bears. Daddy, Mummy and Baby bears and chairs and beds!!! “Oh no, who's been sitting in my chair? Oh no – its broke.” How does Baby bear feel – so sad, and Goldilocks when she wakes, her surprised face!!! Good moves and listening. Well done.
More large boxes to decorate in preschool. What can we find to cut and stick on. What will the box be? A house, a den, a car or a cave.
The Easel was inside and proved to be very popular. We have some lovely creative pictures heading home to you all.
On Wednesday afternoon we enjoyed making dens outside with our boxes and ended up making one into a slide. We sang our sing up song and then practised our 3 bears story using our yoga moves and repeated phrases.
On Thursday afternoon we walked to the outdoor area. We remembered our Golden Rules to stay safe. We explored a wooded area whilst Lynne got the kelly kettle on to make hot chocolate for a child's birthday party – we had cakes as well. We then played Stuck in the Mud.
Hiding – Where have they all gone? The children enjoyed finding places to hide and finding those that are hiding. Come on Kelly, where is she? Where has she gone?
Some very good teamwork when tidying up “What's going to work – teamwork”.
