Mrs Blain was supporting the children to spell their name. The letters were in a variety of shapes and then the children were asked to identify the letters and the shape they were in, the children can describe the properties of the basic shapes and some children can confidently describe the properties of a pentagon, hexagon and octagon.
In the creche room Mrs Brown was assisting the children to make cloud number pictures. The children were identifying the number on their cloud and then glue down the correct amount of raindrops. Some of the boys and girls are really good at recognising numbers up to 15.
We also had Lego, sensory soapclouds, hairdressers and article small world play out.
We also had a visit from Louise from Child's mile who played a game about smiles. The children looked at cards with only the smile visible and had to guess who the smile belonged to.
At together time the children made a large circle and took turns to hold wool to create large shapes. This helped the children to see how many edges and corners they have and if the edges are the same size.
The children then voted for the last Julia Donaldson story they wanted to hear. The children voted for "the snail and the whale". Now we have read 6 Julia Donaldson stories the children will be doing book reviews next week and a graph to see which was the favourite.
Have a good weekend.
