Happy New Year everyone & welcome back to our lovely Squirrel family! 🐿️
Our Squirrels came back with a lot of chatter and excitement this week and we were so pleased to see everybody 🥰
Our theme this term is Ice World so we have started to explore what that looks like through sensory activities 🧊🥶
Squirrels have had their problem solving hats on this week and have been challenging themselves in all kinds of ways. We are so pleased that some of our children are starting to enjoy working together too.
Karen led a fabulous bucket session for us this week, making some beautiful rainbow art using paints and a sponge. The children were captivated 🌈
On Friday, we had our cooking session and made some delicious cheese salad sandwiches. All our Squirrels got involved, choosing their ingredients, spreading butter, chopping cheese and vegetables and of course, sampling their goods. These sessions incorporate a whole host of skills – developing our independence, honing our fine motor skills and exposing us to a variety of new tastes, textures and smells. We were very proud of the children experimenting with new experiences.
We will be focusing on our sandwich making for the rest of this half term to see how our skills develop. Check back next week to see what we achieve! 🥪
Don’t forget that we have P.E on Mondays and swimming on Wednesdays this half term. We will send the P.E kits home at half term, but if you want these back sooner – please write a note in your child’s home diary.
Have a lovely weekend everybody!
⭐⭐⭐ Love the Squirrels team – Heidi, Karen, Chantelle and Josh ⭐⭐⭐
