Latest Play Room News
The Ragdoll children have enjoyed finding their feet and exploring the room as well as welcoming new staff to the room with lots of lovely cuddles. We will be exploring lots of arts and craft and mark making for our wall displays. The children are enjoying learning the new routine and having fun in the garden seeing all of their friends. Hopscotch will be focusing on updating the display boards with their favourite storybooks and exploring sensory and messy activities. The children have settled very nicely building relationships with staff and as well as making new friends.
This term in Hobby Horse we are welcoming and settling in our new children to the room. We are going to explore some creative activities for our artwork display board and all the children have shown lots of interest in animals and the Old MacDonald’s Farm book so we are going to further explore this and create a display following their interest.
In Spinning Tops the children have been exploring what they look like in the mirror and drawing self-portraits for the ‘wow moments’ board and have been practicing the letter sounds of their name as well as practicing letter recognition and formation.
We have began our letters and sounds program and the children are currently exploring farm animals and have started to explore the ‘Biff and Chip’ stories, which are also available to borrow in the hall outside Spinning Tops. The children have worked hard to change the role-play area in to a shop and are starting to explore the changing season.
We would like to congratulate Lyn on completing her parachute jump raising over a £1000 to help support Hope for Grace. As part of Jeans for Jeans week we also decided to hold a charity bake sale for Hope for Grace and have raised £60.00.
