In our yoga session this week we practised our moves to Little Red Riding Hood. The children showed good listening skills with some fabulous stretches and bends. How will we hide the wolf's ears? How will we hide the wolf's nose?
We have been busy practising putting on our own coats and role play clothes. This was much more fun than waiting for the adults to help them do it!
We went for a lovely walk to a child's house and had great fun throwing balls at the trees to knock down the apples and plums. We had a game of "Please Mr Crocodile" before we went back to preschool for snacks.
On Wednesday the children did some lovely baking and made blackberry cakes for our café which was held in the afternoon. The café was well supported by parents/grandparents and we raised over £70 which is FANTSATIC. Thank you to everyone who donated cakes and came along to support this event. The amount raised will go towards waterproof clothing for our Thursday afternoon session.
In craft, the children are enjoying using the glue this week. They've enjoyed making pictures using cereal to make a picture frame and they have showed some great creative flair.
Some children enjoyed a small group activity of making plum jam with the plums we collected from our walk earlier on in the week. They enjoyed chopping the plums, removing the stones, measuring the water and weighing the sugar then smelling the mixture cooking on the stove.
On Thursday afternoon we walked to the orchard and found lots of different colours from things around us. We played "1,2,3 Where Are You". We also collected apples and sang "5 Fat Apples Sitting on a Fence.
