We wish all Mummies a Happy Mother’s Day and hope you liked the cards and flower arrangements – we were quite emotional looking at the photos!
We’ve started working on our phonic sounds now so the children have brought in things beginning the sound “s” and “a” – thank you Max for teaching us the actions for “ants on your arm”!
We’re very lucky to have Amy this term and next, bringing her brilliant ideas on mark making and sensory play – the children are loving them! She’s also been helping our “seniors” with some focused activities, including matching numbers to objects, comparisons etc.
The garden is very wet at the moment, but that only adds to it’s attraction it seems, with the digging corner becoming muddy puddles to jump in, a building site, a swamp – and a place for making tea?!
The children have really embraced the construction theme running through the term and this week we will be making dolls houses, garages and other big buildings.
Other activities have included matching card games, story sequencing, gloop making and printing with vegetables – who knew celery could make such a lovely flower picture? (Donna did obviously!)
Our sound of the week from Monday is “t” and our maths focus is ‘big and small’ so please send in some items the children can show and talk about at registration. Have a lovely Sunday.
