Pre-School – Frogs

Last week we were learning about dinosaurs. We practiced dinosaur counting and made collages.  We particularly enjoyed exploring different textures in our ‘dinosaur swamp’ and practiced moving  our bodies like dinosaurs. This week and next week we will be learning about Easter. We are going to make Easter nest cakes  using shredded wheat and chocolate. We will be painting boiled eggs, going on a spring walk and having an Easter bonnet parade on Thursday 17th April.

Allotment

We will be running allotment trips  every Wednesday afternoon.

Tadpoles

Last week we were learning about how we can share and take turns with others. We built towers together  and played games such as ‘Honey bear’. We took it in  turns to share the resources whilst making our sticky  pictures. This week and next week we will be focusing upon  Easter. We are looking forward to having an Easter egg  hunt and our Easter bonnet competition! We will be  designing Easter eggs and singing songs related to  spring.

Last week we focused upon different textures. We had fun searching for hidden objects hidden in gloop  and using our hands to identify different items in a feely bag. We also liked our trip to the allotment  where we explored textures in the outdoors. This week and next week we will be learning about Easter. We will be making Easter cards and joining in  with the Easter bonnet competition. We will also be taking a trip to Pets At Home to see the rabbits and  creating rabbit ears of our own.
