This week we have been making the most of the warm weather and cooling down outside with water play. The children have used water to move objects, pour through funnels/tubes, and explored capacity. They have even enjoyed cooling down under our make shift shower!

We have read and listened to the story ‘Room on the Broom’ to hear and pick out the rhyming words. The children took part in an activity to match rhyming words themselves and listened for the initial sounds that words make. They also got crafty and made their own cauldron picture, saying the magic words that they had made up, as they used their hands to mix the potion in the cauldron.

Next week: children are welcome to bring a bike or scooter in on Monday/Tuesday (please note we will clean prior and after use) to ride through our practice course and think about basic road safety. We will be reading the story ‘The Rainbow Fish’ and getting crafty to make our own Rainbow fish and fish tank.
