Wow what a week we have had! Stay and play day was a huge event as always and well attended by family members. Thank you so much to everyone who came and supported the children during this special day! We had lots of Christmas themed areas and things to make. Then on Friday we had a visit from the Christmas Elf who entertained the children with her wonderful show!
The Blue group designed their own biscuit topping this week – using small smarties just like the spots on Pudsey Bear. They then listened as Mrs Westhall told the children all about pictures from Freddy teddy’s visit to France. After looking at the pictures of the Eiffel tower some of t he children decided to build there own Eiffel towers using a variety of blocks.
This week the Blue Group have used different mark making materials to make colourful pictures of fireworks, in the night sky. We also watched a short film about Francis the Firefly; which prompted a discussion around fire safety. On Friday we listened to a story all about Diwali – the festival of light, and made our very own Rangoli patterns using brightly coloured pencils.
Unfortunately the photographer has just cancelled the sessions tomorrow so will be rearranged. We are sorry for any inconvenience
We have been focusing on activities linked to the summer season this week. This has included a walk to ‘the ‘Big Forest’ where we enjoyed climbing trees and having a picnic for snack. We saw ducks and their ducklings in the river Don and some of us were lucky enough to spot rabbits hopping about! We also made ice-cream sundaes, with different flavoured ice-cream, and enjoyed listening to stories about the seaside.
