We played lots of football this week with some fantastic shooting of the ball into the box. This showed some great hand to eye co-ordination. When the goals were scored they all cheered and ran around in celebration of their achievement(s).
Lots of fun was had by the children looking at the globe - firstly working out how to turn it on and off and how to make it work. They loved looking at the different animals in different places - cold/hot/wet countries. Big fur coats needed for cold places and they must be cold because of the white! Hot places - they were brown and green places had lots of rain.
The sand outside was very popular and lots of laughter could be heard from the children enjoying touching and pouring the sand.
We talked about hibernation - how animals gather their food and keep themselves warm with sticks/leaves/mosses - teasle headgehogs were made.
There was lots of singing. A group of children requested another song after the others had finished "old MacDonald" - the children like making up the noises for the animals.
Using the paints, the children made apple trees with apple printing. Lots of working together could be seen. Look out for our display this week.
