We would like to start this month’s newsletter with a huge GOOD LUCK to all our children who will be sadly leaving us to move on to their Big School in September! We will be so sad to see you go, but at the same time are very excited for your new journey and know you will all be great! Our term time children will be leaving us at the end of July!
In Baby/Tweenie Room this month the children have been focusing on the book Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson.
The children have listened to the audio story and have enjoyed singing and dancing to the Monkey Puzzle song. The staff have encouraged the children to repeat key words developing their speaking and listening skills. They have also been exploring animal puppets from the story.
The children have enjoyed creating the snake from the Monkey Puzzle book using yoghurt pots and strings, learning the sound of a snake as well as other animal sounds and have also had lots of fun practicing animal movements around the room.
In addition, a lovely display has been created focused on the story. The children have painted leaves, created monkeys by printing and enjoyed decorating butterflies using collage.
In Toddler Room this month the children have been doing lots of activities in celebration of Father’s Day.
They have been busy creating lovely and unique Father’s Day Cards, listening to stories about daddies, ‘I love my daddy’ being the favourite. The children have also learnt some songs such as ‘I love my daddy yes’, ‘Daddy is his name ooo’ and have enjoyed listening and joining in with the Father’s Day song on the Interactive Whiteboard. The children have been engaged in lots of role play activities linked to the everyday roles of their daddies, uncles or granddads. The most popular was the outdoor car wash with soapy water, sponges and the outdoor cars which was lots of fun! The children decorated ties and enjoyed driving numbered toy cars to corresponding garages – an activity to support and develop their number recognition skills.
