This week we have done lots of playing outside on our path in the sand. The sand has gone really dry and we are so interested in watching it run quickly through the sieves. It moves so differently when it is dry! We said it felt really soft.
On Tuesday we went to visit our local shop because we had a milk emergency! It’s lovely to get out into our community. We saw lots of people around the village and they were always so happy to see us walking nicely!
We’ve focused on looking at some numbers this week. Looking at numerals and seeing if we can clap that many times because we are learning that things other than objects can be counted. On Thursday we had a great number activity led by Paula where ‘Miss Poppy the troll’ needed help getting the right number of students into her schoolhouse each day.
We’ve still loved playing with the cars and garage this week.
We’ve also been making lots of enclosures with the blocks and lego – one child made Jurassic park!
On Thursday we visited our pre-school garden and had a good run around. We played on the climbing equipment and even played bat and ball. We looked at the beautiful blossom growing on the conker tree. We also saw the Big School PE teacher. She came to say hello to us and introduce herself ready for September.
More garden fun to finish off our week on Friday. We're going to be spending more time in the garden to help us get used to being in the big school grounds. Plus - it's super fun! We saw a few of our friends from last year! We made lovely salad. We laid the table with a flower for everyone.
We made letters using lots of different equipment. A L out of sticks, a B and an A out of stickle bricks! So clever.
For snacks this week we have enjoyed yogurt, rice crispies and waffles.
Amber and Paula 😊
