This week in preschool we have continued with our space theme. The children have been enjoying listening to the book 'Here we are' by Oliver Jeffers, and they have been using their imaginations in our 'space center', travelling to the moon, crash landing and space walking!

On Monday in our heart smart session we read the story 'Hippo is Happy' in which Hippo makes a book filled with things that make him happy. The children took turns passing a smile around to their friends, and then they drew pictures of the things that make them happy, these included, their families, friends and favourite toys. Boris says "if you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours"

On Thursday we took advantage of the clear sky and took turns to look through a small telescope. Unfortunately the moon had disappeared but we were all amazed at how close the Wybunbury Tower appeared.

The children have used balloons and paint to print planet pictures, speckled with cotton bud stars, and have rolled, cut and explored our space coloured playdough.

We have been busy junk modelling again, with the children making houses just like the three little pigs. They worked hard to think about what box/shape to use for each part of their house and what would be the best way to stick them together.

Our number of the week this week has been the number 4. The children have practiced collecting 4 objects, counting 4 items, showing four fingers and writing the numeral 4. We have all enjoyed the story of 'Pete the Cat and his 4 Groovy buttons', and this book is now firmly one of the children's favourites!
They have also enjoyed retelling the Three Little Pig story along with some signs and actions.

Next week we will be learning all about the number 5, building houses out of bricks, straw and blocks, and celebrating Luna New Year and Interfaith week.
