GROUP A REFLECTIONS – WEEK 24TH – 27TH JUNE 2014.
The last week of term already, and still another busy week!
Following our visit from David the Music Man, we made our own musical shakers to make our own music with. The children carefully collected some natural seeds/nuts from the big tree in our garden where they fall on the ground, then they placed these inside two paper plates – stapled them together and decorated them by painting a design and adding a selection of colourful streamers stapled around the edge. We then danced to music with our shakers. We have had the photos taken at David the Music Man’s visit on display for the children to look at and remember, and a book on Orchestral Instruments for the children to identify.
We have continued to enjoy our visiting Guinea Pigs and read books to learn more about them, the children have enjoyed holding them, and being able to take them outside for a feed of our grass.
As it was the last week of term- we celebrated by having a Teddy Bears Picnic on the Friday. The children had cooked some Honey Crackles on Wednesday (because bears love honey)and we made Fairy Bread at Kindergarten on Friday. We also had some teddy bear biscuits and some special yummy Gingerbread Teddy Bears made especially for us (thanks Gina). When the children arrived we sat in a circle and introduced our teddy bears to everyone else – then the children took them off to join in with their activities – they did puzzles, they built houses for bears, they went into hospital, they watched while the children painted. We had teddy bears everywhere- our Goldilocks story, a teddy bear picnic on a fur rug with a special tea set, even tiny teddy bears in our play dough. Later we all danced to music with our teddy bears, then had our party and went off home together. We had such a variety of teddy bears – from tiny to enormous! What fun!
We are looking forward to our holiday to get rid of all those coughs and colds and return ready to start another busy term.
Have a very happy and safe holiday .
What will happen next term?
