Jack in the Box have been settling in new babies, getting creative and exploring sensory materials. We have also been learning new nursery rhymes and having fun in the garden.
Hopscotch children have been having great fun taking part in mark-making activities, exploring different materials and ways of using them. We have also been playing with the sand in a variety of ways, using our fingers, putting the vehicles in the sand, as well as using cups, scoops, and spades. We also have enjoyed music and movement particularly action songs.
Hobby Horse children are learning about making relationships and friendships. We have taken part in bug hunts in the garden and physical activities such as jumping, throwing and catching, balancing on and pedalling the bikes and scooters. We are also exploring maths, measuring our height and using the scales to work out if items are heavy or light and we have been learning about shapes and numbers.
Spinning Tops children have been going on a bear hunt in the garden and continuing the theme in the room by making sensory bottles that contain grass, mud, snow, and water. We have also been making gloop and turning it into mud.
We have been taking part in listening walks to focus on our listening ears and took part in science experiments such as baking biscuits, mixing tea leaves with water, discovering changes and making gloop. We have been talking about mixing and measuring and completing floating and sinking experiments.
We have been starting to learn to write our names and sounding out our names so we can connect the sound with the letter.
We have had fun with expressive play particularly mark making and role play and we have been learning about emotions and how we and others may feel.
