Weekly Makaton Signs: Hello, Thank you, Good
Yoga 3 Little pigs - Please do ask your children to share the story with you. As we have now been practising this since the beginning of term the children are now very familiar with the actions and the sequence of the story. Get them to huff and puff and blow the house down.
Vets and Pets - Pets out this week, lots of caring for the sick animals, bad legs, injections needed, tablets, are they hot, lets wrap them up in something. This then led into some of the children becoming pets themselves and being cared for by the others.
Flour with the construction vehicles. Scooping, pouring, gathering, soft like snow. Just some of the words used whilst playing with the flour.
Forest Club - lots of outdoor fun exploring. Watching the milk bubbling on the fire waiting for our hot chocolate. Lots of talk about our fire circle, how we need to stay outside of the circle, created using rope and placed in a circle around the fire. We call this our fire circle and the only person allowed within the fire circle is Lynne. Lynne has special fire gloves so as not to burn her hands and there is a bucket of water readily available to put the fire out out if necessary. Lynne has been specially trained how to make and care for the fire circle.
We had some clay this week. We needed to work it in our hands to warm it up and then made it easier to create things, such as hot dogs and stick men. We needed to wrap up warmer with our hats, scarves and gloves and layers of clothing as jack frost is starting to pay us a visit in the mornings.
Cafe and Cake Sale - A good chance for a good ole natter. A chance to welcome in new Mums and remember some of our older Mums who have since left. Thank you to all who attended and helped out.
