Good Morning and Happy Halloween week!
We are all definitely ready for a week of scary fun.
Our babies this week have got green coloured play-dough that they will be using different materials, including spiders and different tools where they can mold their own design. Not only this we have skeletons and spooky ghosts to play with too. We will also be mark making using different materials and even using our bodies to make different marks.We have our tuff tray fun also.. with lots of black and green coloured rice, our pumpkins it just calls out to say ‘HAVE FUN’!
Tweenies this week have focused all their activities around their focus book ‘There’s a dragon in my book.’ This has been a crowd favourite with all our children and what better way to extend their learning then by having lots of different activities out for them to enjoy and really learn. We have our dragon ice-cream parlour, where they will be using the ice-cream scoops in our ice-cream shop role play area made especially, which will lead on to baking dragon nests on our homemade cupcakes.
We have paper plates where we can make our emotion dragons where we will discuss how we are all feeling and if we are happy or sad. A great way to really hone in on children’s emotions and support them where needed. We also have dragons stuck in ice and we have to try and break them free – watch out to see if we can do this! This will definitely help with our gross mot skills and sensory skills.
Not only this but we also have dancing with streamers, dragon yoga and also dragon dress up.I am excited writing this so I can’t wait to see it all in action.
Pre-school and Holiday club have lots planned this week, from going out on daily walks to explore nature, baking activities and even a trip to Beacon Fell.. so make sure you wrap up warm!
We also have a pumpkin tunnel all set up ready for our little village and for the children to explore small world area with the train tracks and trains and I mean who doesn’t want to see a pumpkin tunnel on their travels?
Pre-school also have Halloween play-dough and potion making this week.Don’t forget that we will be dressing up on Friday 29th, scariest outfit will win a prize!
