This week we have been celebrating Chinese New Year. We have cooked Chinese food, made a dragon and did dragon dancing, practiced Chinese writing, made mini dragons and read the story of Chinese new year. We also learnt a Chinese song!
This week the children have done their wriggly nativity performances and worked so hard to sing and follow the script! They all looked adorable in their costumes and we are very proud of them all! They have also been making Christmas cards, Calendars and writing letters to Santa, all of which they will take home next week! Merry Christmas Everyone!
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!
We are officially in!
The Green Group explored the Sensory Room for the first time and it was AMAZING!
We talked about what it can be used for and the purpose of it and explored the rules of the room.
The children appeared to be in awe of the lights and smells and of course the colourful bubble tube which has its own fish!
We explored some of the sensory baskets and resources inside of them. The children had many questions and worked well together to take turns.
We would like to thank all the kind parents who helped us raise money and donated towards this. Thank you for all your support the Green Group definitely enjoyed using this room and will continue to do so.
Some of the children shared that they had seen fireworks over the weekend and talked about going to upcoming fireworks displays and bonfires. So for small group this week we had some creative and messy fun by making our very own firework pictures!
The children were able to use materials such as chalk and paint to create their own fireworks!
There were so very big splashes in the creative area and lots of different patterns being shown using the chalk.
In our group room we talked about being safe around bonfires and fireworks. The children were able to point out and share dangers and what could happen if they weren’t safe!
The children have also shown an interest in traditional stories. This week the children experienced the sand story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We used props from the small world area to tell the story and the children did a great job joining in!
Unfortunately the photographer has just cancelled the sessions tomorrow so will be rearranged. We are sorry for any inconvenience
