Ooh arr!

The children all enjoyed some pirate themed arts and crafts last week.

They all enjoyed colouring in their own pirate ships, using some fun Pirate foam stickers and perhaps their favourite of all, decorating their very own Pirate swords!

The children (aged 2.5-4 years old) had great fun extending their vocabulary and learning lots of new words such as treasure, sails, mast and plank whilst the eldest of the group (aged 5) was able to teach them new phrases such as “x marks the spot”!

Superheroes!

The kids loved these Superhero stickers this week. The youngest (aged 2) enjoyed the act of peeling the back of each sticker off which is great for their fine motor skills and the eldest  (aged 5) loved telling the younger ones  all about Superheroes and their superpowers and reading each of the words out aloud.

 

Areas of Learning Covered: Literacy, Physical Development (Fine Motor Skills), Personal, Social and Emotional Development and Communication & Language.

 

Mandala Colour in Flower Decorations

The children loved colouring in these Mandala Flower Colour-in decorations by Baker Ross after school today. Its another activity that is great whatever the child’s age. The older children can enjoy very intricate colouring in if they wish and the younger ones can simply just enjoy making marks. Aren’t they lovely?!

 

Spring school runs

Rain, rain, go away! You wouldn’t know it today with the rain hammering down outside but the start of Spring was promising with bright blue skies, birds singing, the village sheep baa-ing, bright yellow daffodils in full bloom and the kids and I spotting our shadows as we enjoyed our walks to and from school…apparently its due to brighten up tomorrow!
