This week has whizzed by...
In our personal, social and emotional development, we have built upon our learning of being a good friend as part of our Heartsmart sessions. This week, we thought about different ways we can be a good friend using different parts of our body. We thought how about how we can use our ears to listen, use our mouth to smile and say kind things, use our heart to show love and use our hands to help our friends. Boris reminds us, "There are lots of ways to be a good friend to others".
During our well being session on Friday afternoon, we chose to spend it on Fort Lewis. It was wonderful to observe the children giggling, laughing, challenging themselves to climb and balance and helping each other to overcome challenges.
To develop our communication and language development, we have read different texts based on the story 'The Three Little Pigs' and we have been discussing similarities and difference between these stories. We particularly enjoyed the story 'The Three Horrid Pigs and the Big Friendly Wolf'.
To support our physical development, we have continued to pinch, splat, roll, squish and squash play dough as part of our dough disco sessions. We have also been using a bat to hit a ball and it has been lovely to be able to spend more time in our outdoor environment.
Within our literacy sessions, we have continued to use our talk for writing actions to retell the story of 'The Three Little Pigs'. We have also taken part in daily phonics sessions, please see Tapestry for this weeks focus.
To support our writing development we have been mark making with carrots, chalks on the playground and have continued to trace lines and circles.
To support our mathematics development, we have focused on 'one more'. We sang our own made up song about frogs and each time we added one more. We then had a go at thinking of our own 'one more' rhymes to sing.
Within our understanding of the world development, we have continued with our learning on new life at Easter time. We will share our learning with a video on Tapestry next week.
We have enjoyed threading as part of our expressive arts and design development. I set the children the task of threading each hole in order and they tried really hard to accept the challenge.
You are amazing Preschool, thank you all for another fun filled week.
Enjoy your weekend and I look forward to seeing you all next week.
