Our story this week for Yoga was the Hungry Caterpillar. There was lots of counting different shapes to create with our bodies and balancing! We had our own ideas of what to put in a sandwich.
We played Sound Lotto - there was lots of good listening skills for the different sounds of the animals and then seeing if that animal is on your card.
Food Lotto was also played. We talked about the different food groups fats, meats, dairy, sweets, breads - then putting your hand in the bag and trying to pull out one that was on our own card. We looked at the different shapes of the foods and trying to feel in the bag for that shape.
We had Babies Day Out - lots of ways to care for your baby - keep them warm, feed them, handle them gently. On No! They need changing. Lets go for a walk and wrap them up warm.
The children have been busy acting out the story "We're going on a Bear Hunt". We've been in the long swishy swashy grass, through the squelchy mud, through the splish, splash water, through the stumble trip forest, through a snow storm "Whoooo" then through a cave until we met "A Bear". The children really enjoyed telling this story and acting it out and have now befriended the bear because they have decided its a friendly bear and he just wanted friends to play with!
Lovely creative pictures are coming home, the children loved playing with the bingo stampers. They have created some very bright, colourful pictures. Some children discovered that by placing another piece of paper on top of their drawing then taking the top one off you get 2 pictures the same.
Come and take a look at our giant apple tree display in our book corner unit. The children have loved working todether to create a big realistic masterpiece.
