On Monday we did a Easter Scavenger hunt. It was so much fun.

We search around on the field to find 10 different items to do with Easter and tick them off of our tick list.

On Tuesday we had a lovely morning making Easter bonnets ๐Ÿ‘’

Also on Tuesday morning we had a wonderful time in the outdoor classroom. We explored the mud kitchen, read some books and made some car tracks.

As it was really nice weather on Tuesday afternoon we had some water play on the playground.

On Wednesday we had a lovely morning creating some colourful Easter pictures.

Also on Wednesday we had an Easter bonnet parade where we showed all of our friends our Easter bonnets and played some Easter song in the hall.

We all really enjoyed this.

On Thursday we had a lovely day.
We drew some whiskers and eyes on some mice for our display.

We also made some scrumptious hot cross buns. We used our fine motor skills to knead the dough.

On our last afternoon before Easter half term we had ice cream ๐Ÿฆ , chocolate sauce ๐Ÿซ and sprinkles โœจ

We hope all of our dragonflies have a lovely half term and we look forward to seeing you all when you get back.

Have an Egg-cellent Easter! ๐Ÿฃ

This week we have been joining in with exciting Easter events. We cracked open the week with decorating a hard boiled egg with paint so that we knew which one was ours in egg-citing competitions later in the day.

Once dried we enjoyed having some fun in the Hall. Here are a few photographs of us joining in with egg rolling and an egg and spoon race.

Also this week we have had a smashing time decorating an egg card with shaving foam and paint. An egg-stravaganza!

We have been busy cementing our skills in our โ€˜Buildings, Houses and Homesโ€™ topic. On Monday we used the wheelie measure around the hall and the classroom to see how big they were.

Play is the โ€˜Buildingโ€™ blocks of life

This week we have returned to our โ€˜Buildings, Houses and Homesโ€™ topic. We have had the opportunity to try on a Lego brick tabard, apron and brick T-shirt as we played with Duplo bricks. Some of us liked trying to build them up as high as we could and some of us liked knocking the wall down! We have joined in with the actions of the song โ€˜Peter Hammers with one hammerโ€™ and hit pegs into foam with a hammer. We have also made a sugar cube wall and used yoghurt pots to build with.

We have been thinking about special people in our lives and who we would like to send our love ๐Ÿ’• to this weekend. We have made a card to say โ€˜I love youโ€™ and enjoyed decorating a flower pot and filling it with compost and a plant ๐ŸŒธ specially for you. We hope you like it.

Howdy partner! … ๐Ÿค 

A warm welcome to all our โ€˜playmatesโ€™

On Monday bullseye came to visit us. We loved stroking him and rubbing our faces on his fur. He was so soft ๐Ÿ˜Œ

On Monday afternoon we decorated pancakes to look like Mr Potato Head.

We used pretzels as arms, teeth and lip sweet for the mouth and a variety of different jelly sweets for the eyes and nose.

On Tuesday we made green jelly and decorated them using icing eyes to make them into aliens ๐Ÿ‘ฝ ๐Ÿ‘€

We also made chocolate angel delight mud pots.

Wednesday we decorated a real Mr Potato Head. It was lots of fun as we put his ear as an eye and his nose as a mouth ๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘ƒ ๐Ÿ‘„

We also made our own forkys and spoonies, we did this using a plastic spoon or fork, pipe cleaners , goggly eyes and lollipop sticks.

When we arrived to school on Monday morning the reception was decorated as Toy Story. There was music playing as we walked into the foyer, lots of Toy Story characters, balloons and bunting were making it colourful and inviting. Lots of our friends had joined in the home task of making a toy from junk items or craft material they had – maybe they will feature in the next Toy Story film! Enjoy the royalties!
