Weekly Makaton Signs: Hello, Good and Thank you
Yoga - Goldilocks and the three bears - So good practically telling the stories themselves through their yoga moves with the tall trees and the big house and so good on the voices they use to say what the Bears say. Fantastic! The benefit of revisiting a story or a song, so that the children can become really familiar with it and comfortable to express themselves and sing and or dance and even make up funny voices to tell a story.
Lots more practice of our sports day activities; egg and spoon, long jump and welly wanging. Some real team spirit being seen, supporting their team mates to do well.
We had a special visitor this week; Lola (our puppet). The children really love the puppet Lola, and listen carefully. Lola unfortunately was sad, she was worried about returning to her own preschool as there had been a lot of name calling. This made Lola feel very sad. It was asked how the children would feel themselves and whether it was right to call people names. The children responded well and came up with ways to make Lola feel better, and how we should be kind to our friends and calling names is not kind. Well done guys Lola looks a lot happier now and she is leaving with a smile on her face. The puppet is a great way to interact with the children and to get certain messages across as a group and to get them thinking together as one.
Caring for the babies, making sure they are fed, kept warm and especially cleaning their teeth if they have had sweets. Lots of caring, sharing, changing nappies and going out for some fresh air.
Also lots of puppies out and about, some children were the puppies. We will have to start a puppy sideline "Kelly's Canines"
