Week Commencing -27th February 2023 - Acorns 25
The week started with exploration of wild animals, small world play, lots of imagination and discussion.
Where do they live?
What do they eat?
This is the tallest!
This one is the baby!
This one has stripes!
The children rescued some animals from a trap in the garden. The children used tongs to help free and save the animals.
On Thursday we celebrated World Book Day some children dressed up but all children shared stories and looked at books independently throughout the day. We learnt that World Book Day is all about celebrating books and a love of reading.
We talked about our favourite books …
“Ten Little Dinosaurs”
The children enjoyed listening to Mrs Spencer read “We’re going on a bear hunt”. After which we got dressed in our warm clothes and boots, and then we were all ready to go off on a bear hunt. We followed the narrow yellow line, crossed the crunchy gravel, tiptoed carefully down the winding path and finally reached the duck pond. The children managed to find 5 teddy bears on the hunt, happily collecting the bears from their hiding places and taking them safely back to The Acorns.
The children helped to make some playdough with Mrs Voller. They mixed all the ingredients together and then waited patiently for the playdough to cook before being able to play. The aim this week was to make wiggly worms of all different sizes. The children also added patterns to some safari animals, stripes to the zebra, spots to the leopard and tusks to the elephant.
Mrs Spencer taught the children dough disco, a great activity to build our finger muscle ready for writing. They had to roll, splat and squeeze the playdough whilst the music played.
Other fun this week was exploring the cosy garden den and lots of chalk writing outside.
We have a lending library at number 25 so feel free to borrow books for home, it’s always lovely sharing different stories, and remember to bring your favorites' for us to share together.
