After reading the story 'Scarecrow's Wedding',we decided to make our own scarecrows and to have a "wedding" like they did in the story. We had spoke about how the groom waits for the bride as she is usually late, then there is a church service where special promises are made and then there is a special party afterwards to celebrate. The children even threw scarecrow confetti (straw). This then sparked an idea, the children thought we could have a wedding at St Peter's Church as many of the children haven't been to a church at that church.
In the sunshine developing fine and gross motor skills!
The children have had a lovely morning in the sunshine developing their fine and gross motor skills. They have been using the bikes and the scooters, they have been playing on the castle and on the woodland path, they have been dressing up as sailors on the 'friend-ship' and have been playing with lots of equipment on the resources trolley. There has been lots of happy smiling faces and lots of sun tans developing! I hope you enjoying looking at these photographs!
Spring Watch Walk!
The children have had a lovely morning! They went on a Spring watch walk into the woods. The children had to use their senses to describe what the could see, her, and feel. They saw lots of signs such as Daffodils, leaves spurting on tress and flower buds growing! They also noticed that the sky got darker because of the Eclipse.
Chinese Food Tasting!
The children have had an exciting afternoon! As we are celebrating Chinese New Year this week, Jade's mum and sister and cousin, who own Wing Sing chinese takeaway on Eaves Lane, brought in lots of exciting Chinese food for the children to try. The children also tried eating with chops sticks which they found very difficult. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thank you very much to Tina, Yasmin and Jenny!
We had a visit from Alan and Kim. Alan told us about lots of things that Kim helps him to do. When Kim had her harness taken off she was no longer " working" so could play with us on the playground. Alan put the harness on some children so they could role play being himself and Kim.
Today the children have all had lots of fun using balance bikes!!
I am sure they will be telling you all about it tonight.
