We are still continuing to learn Thank you, Good, Hello, Morning Song. Some children have been leading our songs in the morning with lots of Makaton signing – well done.
Yoga – Little Rabbit Foo Foo. Everyone is so good at this now. The children are remembering the moves and the story. There were lots of actions and the children were so proud when they were asked at the end to demonstrate to everyone else a certain move. We also start off with a game of Fish, Chips and Peas. One end of the room is Fish, the other Chips and the middle is Peas. We need to keep looking, because Kelly does not speak. Kelly holds up a card and we have to get to the corresponding card, which ever end that may be, but careful – that Kelly is tricky and sometimes she holds up the same card and we don’t need to move. Yoga is followed by Traffic Lights game. What type of vehicle are you, or you could be an animal. We need to buckle up or put on our safety hats. Watch and listen, we only go when it’s green, and watch out for those policemen. You will get a ticket if you speed or jump the lights.
We have many musicians amongst us and we have had some wonderful creative tunes. The children have had lots of fun playing together to create music. There are also some very good singers – watch out X Factor in a few years!!!
We are still enjoying playing amongst the crispy leaves with the farm animals, the diggers. Pouring, tipping and gathering – so many things to do and see with leaves - hours and hours of fun.
Thursday afternoon we enjoyed the sunshine at our outdoor area. We couldn’t make a stream as the sun had dried up the water. Ted had climbed up and got stuck up a tree, so we had to think about how to get him down. Lots of good ideas – can we climb ourselves? Use a stick – is it long enough? With great teamwork Ted was rescued.
We had a visit from Lola (our puppet) who had a bandage on her head. Unfortunately she did not use her listening ears when her mummy told her to stop and she ran into a car!!!! We had lots of talk about always using our listening ears to keep safe. When discussing our listening ears, we have been using the phrase “use of listening ears” and not saying turn them on as children may say they have turned them off!!!!
