We are still learning Makaton Thank You and Good/Well Done. Please get your child to show you them at home.
In Yoga this week we had The Hungry Caterpillar. The children listened well to the story and enjoyed doing all the actions. The children finished with some familiar games - Traffic Lights and Follow My Leader.
Water play was hugely popular this week with the sun shining. The children had drainpipes at different levels and poured water down them to make the boats float. The next day the children really enjoyed having the sea life animals in the water. We had squids, Octopus, Crabs, Whales, Rays, Turtles and many more.
The children have also been enjoying some large collaborative art. Inside the children used felt pens to create a beautiful picture which is on display near our milk and water board. Please take a look. Outside the children made a large picture using paints, stamps, rollers and even flicking paint. They had to think of how to get the paint in the middle of the picture once they had painted around the edge first! They came up with some good ideas.
On Thursday afternoon we walked to our outdoor area. We counted how many butterflys we could see with the help of our Dad helper. We helped to cut the grass but our scissors were small and it was a big job! One child planted a bean and took it home to see if he could grow a beanstalk. No time for games this week, we were so busy exploring and ran out of time!
