This morning has been filled with paint, painting bugs, paper and ourselves to make prints and has caused much hilarity 🙂
Painting and making prints with plastic bugs was a big hit today, I think some of the children enjoyed painting themselves more than the bugs! Alix was raced around the garden and came last, much to the children’s hilarity. The numicon on the maths table prompted a lot of interest and we also have our animal encyclopedias out for the children to look through.
We had lots of excitement today! One Mum brought her guitar in and played nursery rhymes for the children and then read some stories which the children loved. This afternoon, they were fascinated by the disappearing, reappearing pink sun and the eerie light.
Flower group has been practising their scissor skills cutting candles to put on cakes. In the garden, we made birthday cards for Leo the Lion and the bikes were out so the Breakspeare Filling Station is back in business!
Some very complex construction in the garden this morning – we have budding architects, designers and builders in our midst! Seesaws have been a big hit all week, the children love the sensation and it encourages them to work as a team.
