This week we’ve really been enjoying the role play kitchen, the dolls and the barbies and fairies. It’s been so nice to watch all the children playing alongside each other in similar games. We’ve used lots of vocabulary and helped each other to expand on the game narrative.
This week we started practicing for our Sports Day.
On Tuesday we went up to the big field at the park and practiced running, jumping, and skipping to the finish line. We will let you know a date for Sports Day and a few other things that are happening soon.
On Wednesday Cheryl came to play with us and it was great. She showed us how to make finger puppets and we got really creative on the crafty table. We were inspired by a Jack and Jill storybook.
On Thursday we went on a walk around the village and ended up having a quick go on the park.
We also looked at writing the big letters on our names on a whiteboard all together on the carpet.
On Friday we played with the animals, blocks and cars. We also enjoyed playing a game together called Knickerbocker Glory where we had to roll the dice and match up the numbers to the toppings on our ice cream! Group games like this are brilliant for encouraging turn taking and being patient.
For snack this week we have been enjoying toast, apples, and banana.
See you next week!
Amber and Paula 😊
