Makaton signs – we are still learning Good, Hello and Thank you.
Lots of picnics this week and talk of travel. What we travel by such as boat, aeroplane, car, bus and walking. The places we have been, seaside, woods, hot places and places where we can swim. Discussion as to what we need to pack, food, clothes and teddy. Who might we go with, our friends, mummy, daddy, teddy and who we might like to go and visit and all this from a couple of suitcases and some play food. Sparking a riot of ideas and a world of imagination and perhaps some memories too!
Many, many paintings created this week to share. A sharing of ideas, sharing paint, paper even creating pictures together and so much discussion over what it is we are creating. The stories behind each stroke of the brush and how when we put colours together they make more colours.
Thursday Forest Club. We had some visitors while we have been away. A new den had been created with a flag, letting us know who had made it, some of our old preschool friends – they did take some items from our old den, but that just meant we had to go on a hunt for more things for our den to fix it. We went to look for the toad from last week. Good remembering of where he was, but he had moved home. We had a look around, but we could not find him. Perhaps he had gone on his holidays. Games, snacks, fun and laughter followed by lunch.
