We started off the week with some outside play finding bugs 🐛 and looking at them all closely through a magnifying glass. 🔎
We also had some free play in the conservatory. We made teddy bear picnics 🧺. We also acted out Goldilocks and the three bears 🐻.
As Tuesday was St Patrick’s Day we decorated Shamrock ☘️ pictures.
We had lots and lots of fun 😄 we even stuck tissue paper on the end of our noses. Also on Tuesday we created St Patrick’s Day green sensory bottles.
We used glitter, Pom Pom’s, feathers, straws, pipe cleaners and tissue paper.
After all of our hard work we got hungry 😋, so we decided to make some beans on toast.
We all put a piece of bread into the toaster. 🍞 While we were waiting for the bread to toast we warmed the beans up in the microwave for 2 minutes until they were nice and warm. Once the bread had toasted we buttered it and poured the beans over the toast and ate it all up.
This week we have had a lovely time in the sensory room. Looking at the Fibre-optic Lights.
To finish the week off we created some beautiful Mother’s Day cards and presents 🎁.
We also had a lovely afternoon creating chocolate nests as we were unable to go swimming this week .
We began the week with listening to the story ‘Guess How Much I Love You’, which introduced us to the celebration of Valentine’s Day. We have been busy exploring heart patterns by matching the correct halves. We have also used our counting skills by making cheerio bracelets and matching amounts to totals. We had a great time getting messy with chocolate as we made heart shaped treats and baked some special cakes for our loved ones. Towards the end of the week we had a wonderful time dancing and playing games with our friends in our class valentine’s disco. Finally we prepared and made some very special gifts to take home on Valentine’s Day, we hope you enjoy them. We would all like to wish you a very ‘HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!’
We have had a super week at school. We began by bringing the magical side of the circus to life through exploring and enjoying a story called ‘Jack in the Box’. We created our own magic pictures using colour changing crayons and magic water doodle mats. There has also been many magic tricks and talents performed by all from popping candy to keeping the balloon in the air. Throughout the week we have helped prepare our fruit and made some circus themed dishes including clown custard faces and circus animal pancakes. We finally completed some activities based around the animals in the circus. We listened to the story ‘Nightie Night Circus’ and create some wonderful paper plate characters, we also enjoyed playing some elephant games including ‘Elefun’ and ‘Doh Nutters’.
Roll Up! Roll Up! This week at school we have continued with our circus fun. We began by entering our classroom circus through the rainbow curtain whilst listening to the story ‘Noisy Circus’. We all took part in performing as a weight lifter and amazed our staff with lifting the very heavy inflatable weight. During the week we concentrated on the theme of ‘clowns’, we had a great time using sponges and cream pies to splat our clown faces. We even designed and made our own clown hats and ties to wear during our activities. In our cooking session we worked as a group to make our own custard fruit flan which many of us enjoyed tasting. By Friday we became expert jugglers when bouncing the balls on our parachute and created some amazing paintings when dipping and rolling our balls in different coloured paints.
