New year, new term and a new start for some - welcome and welcome back. Everyone seems to have had a visit from Santa and everyone had a really good time.
We have been learning the Makaton signs for Hello, Good Girl and Good Boy. The description of how to do these can be found on the screen divider. There is also a leaflet available. We will continue to use these signs until everyone is familiar with them.
For Yoga this week we have been doing the Three Little Pigs and that big old mean wolf - although they did all learn to become friends at the end and shared the stew! We have been creating lots of new and familiar moves.
There were lots of sweet wrappers around - not sure who ate them all! They helped to make decorations, face masks and stained glass window decorations.
We've had lots of new and exciting things to see for Show and Tell - thanks Santa.
Some children really enjoyed experimenting with the paint and mixing up new colours. They enjoyed watching and predicting which colours would make what colour when mixed.
Lots of cooking has been happening with the play dough. The children have been making some great recipes and creations and some even wrote shopping lists before going shopping to buy the ingredients to make their play dough. Fabulous role playing.
We have also had lots of fun making hobby horses this week. The children all had their own sticks from the garden area then a choice of sock. They stuffed it with newspaper and attached it to the stick - we made some sweet faces for them. The children then spent a long time rolep laying as a group and having lots of fun on them.
