We have been making flowers, salt dough hearts and cards for mothers this week and it has been great fun discussing what it is that we love about our mothers/grandmothers. Comments such as “she makes me pizza”, “I love it when she has her happy face”, “she lets me play with my dolls” and “my mummy is very old but not as old as you, you are very old” (comment directed to Fiona, true but slightly crushing!!).
We have had some lovely sunny days this week and on two occasions we have had snack in the garden with hot chocolate to keep us warm.
Kelly has been busy building us a new box with a train track on the top to play with in the garden. This is part of our ever evolving outdoor small world area which already has a small dinosaur world in an old tyre. Watch out in the coming months for our fairy garden which is being worked on.
We are starting to think about Easter activities with only two weeks left of this term. A group of children have started to make a large Easter chick with small pieces of torn tissue paper to decorate our wall in time for the Easter Fayre.
We have continued this week with story writing and the children are becoming very good at coming up with new ideas about trains, superheroes, animals and mummies and daddies. Next week we will be getting out the puppets so that they can make up their own stories and produce shows for the other children.
Words we have learned this week:
Kindness (in relation to comic relief)
Ideas to continue this week's fun at home:
Make some salt dough (recipe on website) and mould into Easter decorations to hang in the window or from a branch in the garden
Have hot chocolate (or any other hot drink) outside. Maybe take a flask to the country park. Together with your child you can listen to and watch the sights and sounds of spring around you.
