Weekly Makaton Signs: Hello, Thank you and Good.
What a beautiful start to the week, lovely sunshine and lots of painting, sand play and tunnels. Hide and seek, chasing games, oh so much going on outside. Enjoying the sunshine safely. Helping the children to understand about the benefits of sun cream and sun hats, as the rays from the sun can be harmful, but by putting on sunscreen, we can still appreciate the benefits from the sun such as vitamin D and a rosie glow to our skin, but without the harm.
Painting, mixing the paints together and seeing what other colours are created, sharing of the paints and waiting for our friends to finish with a colour, so we can then use it. So much narrative, discussing what they are painting, what colours they need, looking at each others to see what they are creating, getting ideas from one another, who the painting is for, where the paintings will be put at home. WOW all this from painting and then there is their wonderful piece of art too, to share at home. Fantastic!
Then the rain came, but never mind we are on the bus and we are off to Africa, see the lions, tigers, snakes, but as they said quiet on the bus or the driver might crash. Some thought they were off to London to see the Queen.
Lots of dressing up Princes, Princesses, superheroes, Some really good and having a go at doing it themselves so they don't have to wait for an adult to help and then they can get on with the more important things of playing. Yeah!!
