It has been a busy first couple of weeks to the term so far in cygnets class. This last week we have been looking at Hairy Maclary books, the children have thoroughly enjoyed listening to these stories and activities linked to this. We have looked at the different sizes of dogs in the books and also the different textures of them. The children have been able to use paint to dip animal figures in for Mark making.We also set up a veterinary surgery for for for play, the children enjoyed looking after the dogs and taking turns to help to do this.
We enjoyed exploring with messy play, we looked at the different textures and the sounds they made.
In Cygnets we have been busy preparing for Christmas. The children have enjoyed making Christmas crafts, we have explored the story of the gingerbread man using dough and flour. The children have been learning new Christmas songs and actions, they have been becoming more familiar with the songs and actions each week. We are sure many of you have noticed some of these.
We have been celebrating lots of birthdays, singing to our friends and blowing out the candles. We hope all of our children have had lovely birthdays.
Next week we will be having a special visitor-Santa.
