Happy Friday 😁


The enjoyment and experiences that we have had this week have been amazing! We have taken a look at all the characters from Alice in wonderland and what different features they have. We’ve also looked at the Euro’s and all the different teams taking part, with us even taking part in football ourselves and then ended the week with cherry day.. yum! The Learning never ends with us here at MonkeyMoos.

If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. ☕️

The children have enjoyed learning a card game called snap! They listened to the adult explain how it works and they were very excited to call out the word “snap!” The queen 👑 of hearts ♥️ was not so happy losing on the other hand.
This allowed the children to maintain focus and watch out for the same numbers.🔢

Are you as mad as a hatter, as mad as can be?! The children got very creative and used lots of colourful art materials to create the worlds most colourful top hat!🎩 They helped each other out with the cutting and took it in turns.

But we can’t forget making magical 🧙‍♀️ potions. 🧪 the same ones that Alice drank, They used the bottles to fill up with magical water, and then said magical powers to make the potion work to make them big and strong.

It’s coming home 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

As it’s the Semi Finals we have had a football ⚽️ crazy day, from creating our own football ⚽️ pitches big and small, creating England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 flags and a Denmark 🇩🇰 one.
Predicting who will win and as if some of the children predicted Denmark 🇩🇰 would win 😢

They had fun creating a “it’s coming home video” as well as dancing along to “it’s coming home”. We spoke about all the traditional English tradition Such as Cream tea ☕️ Sausage and mash, fish 🐟 and chips and also Denmark’s traditional food such as smørrebrød (open sandwiches 🥪) Danish pastries 🥮 and other traditions too.

Let’s all celebrate 🎉 and wish England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 a fantastic game!

Good afternoon everybody! 😁

This morning in the babies have been having a tea ☕️ party 🎉. They helped get it all ready making their own sandwiches 🥪. They have been assembling them with their choice of filling before helping to set the table up all ready! This is all in the spirit of Alice in wonderland day. They have also been exploring the messy tray filled with hearts ♥️ for the one and only Queen 👑 of Hearts ♥️. This afternoon they have been looking at the white rabbit 🐇 and his long ears 👂. They then have been making their very own rabbit ears 👂 to wear. Next they have been wearing their bunny ears to play sleeping bunnies.

The toddlers meanwhile have been getting creative by making Cheshire Cat 🐈 headbands with cat ears 👂 on to help acknowledge Alice in Wonderland 🌸 Day. They used different mark making tools ✍️ to decorate the headband before sticking down the ears and measuring 📏 how big it needed to be for their heads. This afternoon they have been making towers or sandcastles 🏰 using different sized containers in the sand tray. This got them looking at language of size or shape. 

While all this was happening Preschool were getting messy and creative making mad hatters hats 🎩 using glue as well as different media such as lolly sticks 🍭 and sequins ✨. This afternoon they have been engaging in independent reading 📖 with friends to look at how stories are structured as well as how books are read left to right ⬅️➡️.
