This week the children have been learning the basic names for their body parts.
Our song this week has been Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes. All of the children joined in with the actions and words.
We have been using our senses to touch, smell, see, hear and taste.
Everyone ran around the 200 meter track.
We used our eyes to watch in complete wonder as one of our children ran 1,500 meters before announcing that he’d run out of power. He was 100 meters short of a mile!!
“Look a spiders web”.
Taste buds were brought to life when eating the sandwiches that the children had made themselves.
Picnicking under the shade of a tree.
Sharing a deliciously, tasty, handmade picnic.
Feeling the sticky glue and selecting materials to stick.
Braving the climb, looking from high up and listening to the instruments.
Making and smelling peppermint play dough.
Making play dough at home is cheap, simple and great fun to play with. Our children loved making it, then instantly playing with it. It will keep for a good amount of time if stored in a plastic bag or container too.
Mix 1 cup of flour with 1/4 cup of salt.
Add 1 tablespoon of oil, paint or food colouring, then gradually add approximately 3/4 cup of water.
Add more flour or water if you need to, after stirring and kneading.
Painting the shed.
This weather is perfect to get a small pot of water and an old paintbrush out, to paint fences and pavements. It is entertaining for the children and a great way to develop movement and control.
School closes on Thursday 24th and re-opens on June 5th as we have inset days.
Next week we will be partying!
