This week our Dragonflies have been very busy doing all things Halloween! We’ve worked together in groups and individually to learn even more fabulous skills! Not forgetting our walkathon to celebrate Oakwood’s 50th Birthday! We can’t wait for you to have a look at all of our Halloween fun!
To begin our Halloween celebrations we introduced our weekly song, ‘The Spider on the Floor.’The children had fun interacting with our toy spiders and following the actions. Linking with our song we made spiders and spider webs. Our Dragonflies used their developing fine motor skills to use out art materials to create their spooky pictures! They were exposed to glitter to create our spiders web which was a new texture and all our children coped brilliantly!
Our Dragonflies showed us their cooking skills this week and didn’t we just have a great time! The children sat wonderfully in a group and are beginning tolerate taking turns. Cooking equipment was handled very confidently by our young chefs, we worked on our stirring and spoon handling this week.
Messy play this week was obviously Halloween based! Our children were exposed to a handful of materials in our sensory bin such as, lentils, pumpkin, jelly and rice crispies. The Dragonflies once again loved working in a group setting and are really handling sharing the materials and exploring the textures!
Friday Halloween sensory was throughly enjoyed by all our children! They were given to opportunity to explore all our spooky materials and items. Our children really enjoyed some Intensive Interaction with their adults to build on their communication skills. They were given free time to explore the sensory materials individually and all handled the items brilliantly.
The walkathon gave our Dragonflies the chance to have fun celebrating Oakwood’s 50th Birthday. They chased the bubbles and completed their laps without even realising.
Have a wonderful Half Term Dragonflies! We’ll see you all in a week!
