What a lovely end to the week, the children started the session outside and soon got into being only in the fresh air. Some children enjoyed making clay tiles, they then collected leaves, twigs and stones from around the garden which they then pressed into their tile.
Most of the children came to the fire circle where we talked about what we need to make a fire and recapped on how to stay safe around a fire. Linking with this week’s poem we decided to cook popcorn on the fire. The children were interested in how we could do this and looked at the corn in the pan before it was cooked, we then compared it to when it had cooked. We listened for the popcorn popping and repeated our poem with the actions as it was cooking. After a whole day in the garden calm, happy, resilient and satisfied children returned home.
We have definitely had a craze of children bringing folders in this week, which is terrific. We are in the process of making an area for these folders so the children know where they can easily access them. And next week we will make sure we model to children how to punch holes and file our beautiful writing.
It was lovely to have some of our parents in this week reading and sharing experiences with the children. Please remember you are welcome anytime, if you can spare some time please do come and speak to us.
- Please remember to come and talk to us, we may be busy but we will find time remember nothing is too big or too small to discuss. You can also always email anyone one us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you feel appropriate.
- Please make sure your child’s coat has a working loop and that all items such as hats and gloves are named. Many clothes are being left behind at the moment.
A pair of new green Mountain Warehouse wellies have gone missing, the wellies are named and if they have by any chance gone to the wrong home, we would be very grateful for their return. Thank you.
We hope you have a relaxing weekend and as always look forward to seeing you all next week.
