This week we have been learning lots. We have explored Mother language day, where the children learnt about different languages and different ways to communicate by using sign language. Next we had World Thinking day, 🌍where the children played memory games, and thinking on how we can solve problems. Lastly we had to finish with something yummy to eat which was chocolate cake day!🍫🍰
Today has also been Mother language day.
We have been learning about different languages throughout the day and have been doing this by looking at story books, which are in different languages and using the pictures in the story to describe what is happening.📚
We then have been looking at sign language and have been teaching the children some simple signs such as please and thankyou. We then looked at letters in sign language to see if the children were able to recognise any and copy them. We then discussed that everyone communicates in many different ways.
We have also also talked lots about a party that some of the children went on at the weekend, as well as talking about other fantastic adventures we went on by sharing lots of pictures during group time. 👭
Today has been National Thinking Day, and the children have put on their thinking 💭 hats on.
We played a memory game were the children had to use there thinking head and remember what sea side 🌊 picture was missing. They did very well to remember what had been taken away.
Then they had to think 💭 about what they would like to build with the gears. Some made cars 🚗 and others made different shapes 🔺🔹▪️.
We enjoyed using scissors ✂️ as well. Our grown up 👩 asked us how do we think 💭 scissors ✂️ are used a how to be safe with them.
Puzzles 🧩 was a fun thinking 💭 activity as well. As mush as we did well to put the pieces 🧩 together we had to think 💭 really hard to connect the pieces 🧩 together and some puzzles we needed a grown up 👩 to help us.
In babies 👶 we enjoyed playing with the wooden 🪵 car 🚗 garage, watching the cars go down the ramp was so much fun.
We enjoyed playing in the kitchen area, we made lots of meals 🍛🍲🥗 and cups of tea 🍵 🫖.
Then we enjoyed listening to stories 📕 and we did really well to engage, by pointing 👆to the pictures.
Happy chocolate 🍫 day!🥳
In Baby room we have been busy bees.👶 This morning babies have been doing lots of building with the duplo blocks, seeing how tall they can build towers before they fall.🗼🧱Later the babies explore in a dirt track theme tuff tray. The tray was covered in chocolate cake crumbs, crushed rice crispies and crushed ice cream cones.🧁🍦The babies pushed the cars around in the mixture to create their own car tracks.🚗🚙 The babies have been playing with the puzzles in the cozy corner and looking at the books. 🧩📚The babies have had a really good day!🤩👍🏻
The toddlers 👫 have been exploring in the land of 🍫 and creative imaginative designing. 🥰 Playing in the garden 🪴, kicking footballs, climbing slides, riding trikes, pushing balance board, playing with transport 🛻 and much more!
The children 👦 👧🏼 have been exploring their smell, taste and touch. 🤩 The cocoa powder, flower, sprinkles, chocolate drops & various other ingredients to make our own cupcakes 🧁although I’m certainly sure that not much cooking was happening more of the tasting!🤣
On the other side of the room we were designing 🍰 with ingredients but instead sticking them to 📝 and having a design off. Although they were all winners! 🏆
It was fair to say we were all covered in chocolate, smiling away being our happy confident selves! 😍
Preschool today have had lots of fun today celebrating 🥳 our national chocolate 🍫 cake 🧁 day!!!!
We all had a turn at making our own chocolate 🍫 rice crispy cake, yummy. we all showed Mel are big muscles 💪 when we had to break the chocolate 🍫 into little bits. We all done some amazing mixing, scooping and scraping to put the mixture into the cup cases, ready to go into the fridge.
