We are still doing Hello, Thank you and the Children's Names in Makaton Signs. We have also started doing signs for fruit as we have more varied fruits from our new fruit supplier.
In Yoga we had The 3 Little Pigs. On our way to pick up straw, sticks and bricks, we cycled, took a train and took the car. Houses were built and then each one had a visitor. Mr Wolf who huffed and puffed - finally ended up in the brick house. Mr Wolf slid down the chimney but landed in a hot pot! He promised to be very good, so they all ate the stew together.
The children have been enjoying digging through dirt - digging it up and transporting it to another place, but not onto the floor, or we can not sweep it back in. Let's put it in something else, but what happens when that is full? We need to tip it back, but its too heavy, what can we do? Let's do it together - teamwork. We can do so much more when we work together.
Some school visits have begun for some of our older children. Having story time with their soon to be new teachers and friends.
On Thursday afternoon we had a picnic lunch outdoors. The children had fun collecting different leaves and emptying snail shells. They also done some problem solving as a child's toy kept getting stuck up a tree and the children had to think of ways to get it down.
