Weekly Makaton Signs: Hello, Thank you and Learning their names.
The story we are learning this term is Handa's Surprise. We are learning the actions for all the fruits and animals involved. The sequence of how the story goes, which animal takes which fruit. The props are out so the children can have a chance at retelling the story amongst themselves.
Lots of lovely sunshine brings lots of fun with water, splashing around and getting wet. Please if possible could spare clothes be provided in case of a change needed due to getting wet. If clothes could be labelled too that would be most helpful.
Plenty of imagination making biscuits, cakes, pizzas, pancakes, tracks of tractors, squidgy, squeezy, pull, roll, flatten. So much can be achieved from just a ball of playdough and try smelling it too, there is always a different flavouring added.
Transition to school. There have been school visits for some and lots of chatter about teachers and the sorts of things they have been doing whilst there.
Work experience - We currently have two students with us on work experience from Chew Valley School, Morgan and Megan. They are here for the week to help us play.
Forest School - We had some impressive tree climbers last week, and some amazing swingers really enjoying the tree swings. Lots of digging and exploring. Our vegetables had grown a lot since we last visited our allotments I hope you liked your beetroot.
