Many thanks to the parents who attend the Potty Training session today.  It was good to meet with other parents who have children at the same stage of development and are experiencing similar challenges.

Today we came to Play Group wearing red, white and blue or prince and princess costumes.  Thank you to all the parents and carers who stayed today for our Royal Wedding celebrations.  We had a lovely time making crowns and decorating Royal Wedding balloons and biscuits with red, white and blue icing!

It has been another busy day in Play Group!  Some of our Y6 friends came to visit.  They helped us explore mixing paint to make new colours, play with our technological toys and play games.

 

We listened to the story Hello Fish! We talked about colours and patterns in the pictures, we looked at the numbers 1,2 and 3, we counted fish and we talked about why some fish were sad, grumpy or happy!

 

Later in the session we looked at our caterpillars.  They are busy making cocoons!  Our cress heads have also grown lots.  Look at their green hair!

Today we had lots of fun playing with our shop outdoors.  We counted items, we talked about which boxes were big and little and we talked about which ones were heavy and light.  Some of us even tried to write a shopping list!  We then used pretend money to buy items and took turns to be the shop assistant and scan the items!

Monday 14.5.18

We started the sessions by having lots of fun in the sun.

 

Next we read the story Jack and the Beanstalk then looked at our beanstalks to see how they had grown.

 

We had more fun playing with ice.  It felt very cold and wet!

 

Last of all we made play dough.  We used flour, salt, oil and water.  We had to stir for a long time.   Then we had fun playing with the dough.  We made pizzas, worms and smiley faces.

Kath our cook showed us how to make pizzas.  Lots of lovely things go on top of the pizza base.

 

It was a lovely sunny day so we visited the nature garden again!

 

Later in the session we made some butterfly cakes.

They tasted delicious!

 

We had to problem solve too!  How do we get our toy minibeasts out of ice cubes?

We will be having more fun with ice next week.

 

We finished off the session by playing parachute games and singing nursery rhymes.

““We started off the day by dressing up as super heroes and princesses!

 

While we were dressing up some of our grown ups came for a short talk on potty training.  They enjoyed talking to staff from the local Health Centre.

Then we had a really healthy snack of fruit and milk.

We used black and yellow paint to paint stripes for our bees.  Come and look at the wall and see how many bees are around the hive.

Tuesday 8.5.18

Welcome back after the long holiday weekend.  It was lovely to have such sunny weather when were off school.  Tomorrow at 9.00 am we have a toileting talk from Karen White for parents whose children are wearing nappies.  Karen is full of good ideas and it is good to talk to parents who are in a similar position.  There will be another talk later in the term for afternoon parents.

First of all we looked at our caterpillars and our beans that we had planted.  Everything had grown!  Our caterpillars were big caterpillars and our beans had sprouted roots.

 

We had lots of fun in the sun.  We enjoyed story time outdoors too!

 

Last of all we made potato heads.  We stuck eyes on the side of a potato then put a damp paper towel on top.   Next we sprinkled cress seeds on top of the paper towel.   Lets hope they grow soon!
