Rapunzel was our story for yoga this week. There was lots of good listening for the new moves - with our long hair and climbing up and down. Oh and don't forget the Prince and the bad witch.
The instruments have been very popular. The children loved listening to the sounds they made. They made sure they knew what was a drum, tambourine and a rain maker. Then we hid and made the sound. Can you guess what it is? This shows fantastic listening skills and recognition.
We've had lots of fun splashing in puddles - how big a splash can we make? The children put on the water proof coats, trousers and wellies. We changed the colour of the puddles to yellow and all the children worked hard to wash and brush the paint outside taking in turns using the brush and hosepipe!
There was lots of name games, circle games, to help us learn each others names. The children also played a game where they could only speak when they had the ball - they loved this.
On Wednesday afternoon we did the Sing Up CD - there was lots of action songs and lots of instructions to follow familiar songs - 10 fat sausages. There was lots of under, over, through and in movements which the children loved.
On Thursday afternoon we visited the outdoor area. All the children found sticks and had to decide what to make with them. Some great ideas were expressed by the children, such as swords, scarecrows and hobby horses. These were all the children's ideas and this allowed them to be hugely creative.
