7th June 2019- Weekly update

Dear Parent and Carers

Welcome back and hope you’ve all had a lovely half term break.

Please can you check your child’s hair, there has been lots of scratching and follow the NHS guidelines for nits on   https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/head-lice-and-nits/#    -thank you.

What a fun week we’ve had!

Our adult led focus this week has been air and space. Children have been busy making named rockets and cutting and sticking spaceships and astronauts. There has been lots of talk about what you find in the sky and in space.

Our music session on Tuesday was great fun. The children played party games such as musical chairs, musical statues, simple Simon and lots of dancing.

We were at little forest school on Wednesday where children used scarves. There was running and throwing them in the air and using them as blanket to pretend to be either sleeping tigers/dinosaurs or bunnies. Children practising weaving with willow to make a hanging wreath. At big forest school we practised our fire circle rules, played on the horse and in the pirate’s ship and used treasure maps to explore the environment.

On Friday what a wet day, but the children made the most of it exploring the properties of water! With lots of filling and emptying buckets using the rain water, mixing to make soup, pies and curries. In the afternoon we practised our letter sounds in our name.
