In the garden the children have just made the most of spending time together, chatting, riding bikes and scooters and lots and lots of running.
The Gingerbread Man and Enormous Turnip stories have been the focus of some of our activities this week. The children have been producing some lovely artwork using stickers on the Gingerbread Men colouring pictures and some beautiful looking turnips have been produced on the craft table.
Try this activity at home 🙂 The wild animal toys are always popular and can be used to extend to other areas of learning. Grab a book about animals (this week we used ‘Dear Zoo’) and encourage the children to join in with the repeated refrains in the story, make faces that express the emotions in the book, discover what noises the animals make and to search around for toy animals that look like those in the book.
On our construction table the Mobilo has been very popular and some fantastic looking structures have appeared and some good-looking vehicles also.
When it is a bit cold or wet outside and the children don’t fancy stepping outdoors, we sometimes have a little impromptu dance party accompanied by songs from some of the Disney films. Frozen, Beauty and the Beast and The Jungle Book were the favourite ones to dance along to this week.
