We are still learning Hello, Thank you and Good in Makaton signs.
In Yoga this week we had The Princess and the Pea. We had to make some sandwiches and cakes. There was lots of fun ideas for the sandwiches and we had some very fast food mixers. Let's make the bed, higher and higher. How can we get in? We need to climb! Finally, time for sleep. Let's read a book before bed. Lights out! After a nice long sleep time for a party - yeah!!!
We have been making lots of tracks in the playdough - squiggly, zig zag and wavey. What other tracks or things could we use to make track marks?
We've also been very busy making treasure boxes. The children have enjoyed sticking, cutting and creating magical boxes. Decisions were made on who the boxes were for, mummies, others were for brothers and some just for themselves. What magical things can we keep safe inside? Lots of talk and discussion as to what things they would keep inside and what things are special to them.
We had an obstacle course outside - the children have been enjoying jumping off and landing. Some have really pushed themselves and got higher or jumped further. Some even had a go after watching the others doing it - what fun!
On Thursday afternoon we walked to the orchard and picked some apples ready to make crumbles. We explored our outdoor area and then played Rabbit, Rabbit, Fox. We were going to play a game with apples but the tricky witch had taken them and hid them. Luckily we were very good using our looking eyes and found them all. We finished with our 1, 2,3 Where Are You game but took a while to find Lynne who was hiding up a tree!
