We are still learning Hello, Good Girl and Good Boy in Makaton signs. Ask your child to show you at home.
For yoga this week the animals went in 2 by 2. It was a repeat on last week, but it is good to revisit moves as the children are all familiar with them. We have some great little movers - so well done everyone.
We have been doing lots of paining of rainbows and sunny skies. Oh no - look what happened to my colour - its changed??? The children have been having lots of fun seeing what happens to different colours when you mix them together.
We've had lots of story telling in the quiet corner. We've been looking through an electronic book - matching the page number to the number button which speaks and tells the story.
Our Space display has been added to this week. The children have really enjoyed listening to each others interests and helping each other create a lovely Space display on our board. Please take a look.
We've had lots of interest in numbers this week. The children have been counting and recognising some numbers. Some children were even ordering numbers up to 10 - well done.
There has been plenty of building this week. How tall can we get it - Oh no, taller than you. How can we reach it? Stretch, stretch, stretch - still not tall enough. Let's look around to see what we could do. Good idea - let's stand carefully on top of the box, I'm taller! Now I can reach - uh oh it's all fallen down. How tall can we make it this time? Higher and higher we go. Let's count how many blocks we use.
For Thursday afternoon we went to our outdoor area and were looking forward to a hot chocolate after playing the games What's the Time Mr Wolf, 1,2,3 Where Are You and Simon Says. Lynne and Manda lit the fire in the Kelly Kettle to warm the water, but unfortunately, after several attempts, we couldn't keep the fire burning. We will try again and make sure we have lots of dry wood next time. The children were very understanding and sat around to see us light the cotton wool and listened carefully about staying safe around fire.
