The children were builders for the day and were exploring some building materials and tools. We had bricks, insulation boards, plaster board, wood, screws, screwdriver, hammer, spirit level and hex keys. We even had some pretend cement and a trowel. The children enjoyed trying the screwdriver and the hammer. Cody and Leon enjoyed using the hammer and Eliza was good at spreading the cement on the bricks. We then printed lots of pictures of and put them in the floorbook.
Snack was bagels with cream cheese and cucumber and also banana with a choice of milk or water.
At Get Together Time we sang days of the week and Ruari told us it was Monday. Loagn then told us all about his adventures with Buddy bear. Logan took Buddy to the cinema to see Angry Birds and then he put Buddy's pjs on and Buddy slept in Logan's bed. On sunday they went to Logan's big brother Ronan's Holy Communion and then had a party where Buddy enjoyed playing on the trampoline. Buddy had lots of fun and can't wait to visit again. We then sang Peter Hammers and discussed the Golden Rules and how to be kind to our peers.
Ben G asked to show Mrs Blain and some friends a video on you tube of the tallest building in the world the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. In the video some men were base jumping off the building. Ben said the building was older than him.
We then practiced the graduation, the children are getting good at singing the songs.
