Wow! ... what a busy few days! The children have all been amazing!
Group one have been very creative ...painting some masterpieces of flowers and rainbows onto cling film, painting with bubble blowing, name writing with grasses, feathers and other unusual items. Jonathan became a master chef in the mud kitchen, chopping up herbs from our herb garden to put in his fish pie... delicious!
Group two had a blast too- despite the rain. They have made a junk jail- can you spot the picture with someone hidden inside it? They also loved making their junk bus; making windows, doors and a steering wheel. Well done! They have also been busy making art with nature, using grasses and seed heads to plant and collage with. We also enjoyed exploring the story 'The Colour Monster'.
We have explored and shared our feelings brilliantly with the colour monster story, throwing our different feelings into the mixing bowls and learning that it's okay to have all these feelings and sometimes feel a little mixed up too! Today we thought about our feelings and put these into our very own jar, it was lovely to see that the children felt... happy, calm and loved!
Group one enjoyed problem solving and making predictions with our new water tubes and pipes, trying to figure out how to move and collect the water effectively.
Group two created their own 'dress ups' using paper to design their own outfits which looked fabulous!
We had lots of exercise with shake breaks, hula hoops, obstacle courses, navigating space in our cars and worked our finger muscles too with dough disco! April shared her new ballet skills with us and we all joined in ... she's a great teacher!
Group one enjoyed wash it Wednesday! The children loved our car wash, washing (tracing) over marks made with sponges paint brushes and tooth brushes. Great fun!
We all also enjoyed zoom assemblies where we said hello to our friends through the power of technology and got to hear about what they had been learning.
A wonderful week was had by all- we can't wait for Monday!
