Weekly Makaton Signs: Hello, Thank you, Good
Top tips for talking: Let your child be the leader. Talk about what your child is interested in. Take turns to talk even if he/she is not talking yet. With very young children, simply imitate their words and sentences. This will show them that you are valuing their words and will encourage them to keep on talking.
Top tips for toddlers: I can do it myself! Even though it may take me ages to do something and I may not get it right; it's really important I have a go. I may become frustrated if everything is done for me. You'd be surprised how much I can do given the chance.
Welcome back to our last term of this year and a busy one ahead with lots of Christmas surprises. So your children may come home with lots of stories of what they have been making or creating, but if these are for Christmas then they will be kept at preschool until the last day when "surprise" look at all our precious things.
Welcome also to some new starters, its good to have you come and play. Let us show you around!
Using pasta to make necklaces and then sprinkling in glitter. Good use of fine motor skills, threading the pasta onto the string. Tricky skills putting on the glue and then lots of fun sprinkling on the glitter. Yeah!
Lots of outdoor fun in the sunshine, scooting around, balancing, running around, kicking footballs and best of all watching some men fix a roof, oh and having more than one cup of tea.
Thursday - Forest Club - We made a Guy for the bonfire. We stuffed it full of leaves and named it Bernie. So busy collecting lots of leaves and then up to the pub to place him on the fire ready for fire work night. Also some toast cooked on the fire at forest club. Nice and toasty to keep us toasty. More collecting of leaves, sticks and bracken in order to cover our den so as to keep us warm and dry. Lots more exploring and discovering what has changed and what has stayed the same.
Rain, rain and more rain today! time for splashing around in our wellies. Loads of fun!
