This week we have been very busy, we’ve had St.Davids day, World wildlife day, World book day and dentistry day.
The children have learnt the importance of daffodils, why we need to look after our wildlife, the fun you can have with books and how to look after your teeth.
🌼🏴Happy St. David’s day 🏴🌼
we have had lots of fun with Daffodils 🌼 which are Wales 🏴 National flower.
It is worn on St. David’s day in honour, so instead of wearing them we painted 🎨them, we talked about the green stem and then the yellow petals 🌼 the younger ones painted their hands 🖐🏻🖐🏽 And made the Daffodil 🌼 petals with hand prints.
We then played a game with Daffodils 🌼 they had numbers on and we had to find the correct number 🔢 They had fun winding down in the afternoon and colouring 🖍 the Welsh flag 🏴 They were talking about about dragons and which films have dragons in.
National wildlife day! 🦋
The children started of their day by making ladybirds 🐞 they had to put the right amount of black ⚫️ spots on their ladybird to match how old they were. They then went on a hunt in the garden to see what wildlife creatures they could find… they found worms 🐛 and ants. 🐜 In the afternoon they went on a nature hunt, where they worked in pairs and had to look 👀 what was one their list and tick it ✔️ off if they saw it.
The other children enjoyed playing in the mud and using their hands 🙌 to find the bugs :ladybug:🐜🐞that were hiding underneath. They also made play dough this morning and then used the play dough to make hedgehogs.🦔 This afternoon they went in the garden and collected sticks, leaves 🍁 and bark to make a collage picture.
