Our Week at Preschool 18.06.21
This week has whizzed by... we have taken part in Healthy Eating Week, learned that our bodies do amazing things, retold a story and much more..
Read on to find out what learning has taken place..
In our personal, social and emotional development, we have been developing our turn taking skills this week, to support this we have played board games and we have all been trying really hard to wait our turn to access the seesaw — great job everyone!
During our HeartSmart session, Boris taught us that we can do amazing things with our bodies. We were shown a picture of a body part, such as, mouth, arms, legs, feet and we had to describe or demonstrate something that they can do e.g. with my feet I can jump, etc. We then discussed how special and amazing our bodies are that they can do all those different things.
Boris says, "Your bodies are amazing".
You know all about me. Psalm 139:1
During our well being time, we switched our senses up to superpower level, just like Spiderman. Then using our 'Spidey Senses', we talked about what we could hear, see and smell.
To support our communication and language, we have continued to explore the foods the Hungry Caterpillar ate and have completed activities to support our sequencing of the foods he ate. We have posted foods into the Hungry Caterpillars mouth, naming each food and the amount he ate and we sorted foods into the correct days of the week. We have also enjoyed tasting, one pickle, one slice of Swiss cheese, one slice of salami and all the different fruits (Can you guess which foods we didn't enjoy).
During our literacy sessions, we continued with the imitation stage of our talk for writing. We created a story map and have added actions to help us recall and retell the story 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. It has been wonderful to observe some of our children reading the story to their peers, dollies and even teddy bears throughout the week using the pictures and our actions as prompt — you really do amaze me each day Preschool. To support our writing development, we have created a shopping list of the foods he ate.
Healthy eating has been the focus of our physical development this week. We learned that all foods have a place in our diet but we should eat more of certain foods and less of others. Using the foods the Hungry caterpillar ate, we sorted them into groups, green — go (eat every day), yellow — slow (eat in moderation) and red -whoa (have as a treat). During our afternoons, we enjoyed tasting all the fruits the Hungry Caterpillar ate and we made fruit kebabs. Who knew such yummy food was so good for us!
To support our mathematics development, we have matched an amount of fruits to their correct numeral. We have also used our fingers, numicon and Numberblocks to represent the amount. great job Preschool. Next week, we will move onto a new unit and explore patterns.
Within our understanding the world development, we have observed our caterpillars daily and have begun to make a caterpillar diary. Here are some of the children's observations from week 2:
"They are big, they have eaten lots of food over the weekend"
"They have gotten massive"
"They eat a lot to make them bigger, they are fat"
"They gone a bit bigger and long"
"They have spikes now"
"Whoa, they are so, super big!"
In our expressive arts and design development, we have continued to learn our song 'There's a Tiny Caterpillar on a Leaf', we are looking forward to performing it for our families next week -keep an eye out on Tapestry. We have also been role playing our story "The Very Hungry caterpillar"... and next week, we will begin to create our own props to support our story telling.
During our free play, we have told stories, played tennis, been footballers, rolled hoops, had a go at hula hooping, printed with minibeasts, jumped, climbed and swung from the trees, travelled to Spain, Wales and b&m, dug out all the weeds, watered our plants and generally had lots of fun with each other in the sun!
Thank you for another super week Preschool
