We have had another really lovely week settling into our new environment, getting to know our new friends and our teachers.
We have mostly enjoyed, the petrol station outside, lots more water play - emptying and filling on a large and small scale and talking about bubbling over and volcanoes.
We have explored more construction and recreated our favourite places, this is Alton Towers and CBeebies land!
This week we will be exploring recycling and how we can help the environment and some of us will be staying for lunch club.
Maddie learns how glass is recycled and visits a factory to discover how jam is made.
What a lovely first week we have had welcoming back all our existing children and the new starters and their families.
You can see how busy we have been, embracing and exploring our new environment already. What a fantastic start!
What a fun week we have had! The children have excelled themselves at our mini Olympics demonstrating they know so much about exercise and how it effects their bodies. We had some amazing warm up suggestions before starting our sports day as well. Everyone had a go and tried their best at completing our obstacle course, soggy sponge throw, bean bag balance challenge as well as going for goals with our amazing new football net. The ice lollies we had to cool us down were also a real treat and we made healthy fruit smoothies, after discussing what our bodies need to keep them strong. In addition to this the children have been using their imaginations and exploring 3D shapes through block play and model making with reclaimed materials. Ideas have ranged from transformers to unicorns. We have also revisited traditional stories, in our mark making, I wonder if you can guess which ones these are?
This week, we have enjoyed all things nautical, from sealife and holiday beach play, to pirates, maps and even walking the plank! We have also explored the garden centre, numbers, money and been very busy list making.
This week we recalled all our camping and holiday experiences from the half term. We have enjoyed exploring ice again in the sunshine, finding our letters and sounds hidden, working out which will melt the quickest and how we can make it go back to a solid again.
We also have a butterfly which has hatched, It's a beautiful orange and yellow colour!
