Our weekly Makaton signs are still Hello, Good, Thank you, and the Hello Song.
For Yoga this week we had Handa's Surprise. There was lots of animals and different fruits involved. We are currently learning the Makaton sings for the animals and once the children are familiar with these, we will then add the signs in the for the fruits. This will be extended to add songs and at the end of term we would like to share these with yourselves. More information will follow nearer the time.
There has been lots of den building happening this week – finding things to use – working out what works, what doesn't. How can we make things work. Teamwork! We have been helping one another to create the perfect den to hide in.
We've had some changes this week. Starting earlier and finishing later for a couple of days, although some of us did forget! Also on Thursday we started our Forest School in the morning. We had a fantastic morning playing games 1, 2, 3 Where Are You? What's The Time Mr Wolf? Finding out that mud can be moulded like play dough, especially if you add some water to it. We made a mud lady on the tree, which we all added our own bit to. We even had lunch there! We did work out though that now there is more of us, we need more logs to sit on. We went on a treasure hunt, finding “gold” flowers, large leaves, little leaves, pink flowers, clover – can anyone find a four leaf one?
The sun has started to shine and now is the time to think about and remember sun hats and sun cream to keep us all safe. Thank you.
Playdough is back – finally Lisa has got the recipe right again – it was atmospheric pressure making it go runny – honest!!!!
