We have been working on listening and hearing sounds in words. We have been rhyming and counting syllables in class. We are getting quite good. Today we got to use whiteboards and put our listening skills to the test. We listened to the rhymes and drew the instructions. We drew mad monsters and crazy clowns!
We have started play rota. We do play rota Monday-Thursday. Every week the toys/activities change. This month we are playing with.... Art Box Puppets Small world Fun Mags Home Corner
Emergency surgery in the home corner!
The Caterpillar table is playing in the home corner this week. Sarah was giving her doll into the creche when she fell and her eye popped out! Luckily we had our handy team of surgeons led by Dot! They saved the day and the doll made a full recovery (with the help of super glue).
We have been building up the strength in our hands! We have been practicing using scissors, pencils and completing fine motor Friday activities to make sure our hands are strong. Yesterday we experimented with mark making. We worked collaboratively and created an art piece per pod!
What We've Been Up To!
We got a cool surprise for PE! We got to play with the sensory box! We loved sharing and getting to explore the different materials!
Over the last two weeks we have been working on Nursery Rhymes! We have also been practising our cutting skills. We made Humpty Dumpty sitting on his wall, we also created mice out of shapes!
We enjoyed discovering cool places in our school! We went on a tour and we saw, Nicola's office, Caitriona's office, the garden, the river, bug hotel and the running track. On our adventure we saw tomatoes, pumpkins and bees! Dot helped us spot things in the garden.
We read the story 'Elmer' in school! We really liked that all his colours made him different and special! Some of our favourite parts were... 'When he covered himself in berries' 'When it rained' 'When Elmer yelled 'BOO' and all the elephants laughed. '
Here are some pictures of us playing with our new friends! We really liked playing with our new toys!
