The week is nearly over and we have been up to lots of fun things.
We have had fun playing games with balloons. We have been bouncing them, kicking them and trying to keep them in the air. We took them in the garden so we had lots of space to move around with them.
We have also been blowing bubbles and popping them. This has been helping to promote our oral skills and our turn taking.
We put cars in paint and enjoyed making tracks with different vehicles and in different colours.
We have also been doing lots of dressing up and role playing. We have been doctors, policemen and pirates as well princesses and “baddies”. Role play has recently become a really big part of the children’s play and they use various resources for different things and make up brilliant story lines to act out.
We have been looking at forming letters by using the tablets, pencils and other resources to form letters and to help letter sound recognition. Some of the older children have looked a little at capital letters and when we may use them.
We have been very active doing Tumble Tots and Sticky Kids, exercising our whole bodies and different muscles and making sure we have a big drink afterwards.
In the hall we have been climbing on apparatus, practising our balancing skills and looking at different ways to jump.
The younger children have been playing some colour match games with the bricks and have enjoyed building towers and knocking them down.
I’d like to say a big thank you for all the lovely messages, cards and gifts I have received. I will keep you all informed of when baby comes along and i’m sure Laura will send out an email with details. I have also promised the children I will pop in so they can have a cuddle.
We all hope you have a lovely weekend (even if it does rain!) and I will see you all in a few months time
