Our morning started with the children brushing their teeth with Mrs Black then it was off to play. As the porridge oats in our sensory tray yesterday was such a great success it was back out today again. We also had the painting easel, lots of lovely books, balancing beams, dressing up clothes and babies in the house corner, spaceship, zoo duplo, tweezers and sorting tray, a variety of materials for writing, wooden doll's house and much, much more.
Mrs Blain and the children collated all the information the boys and girls had gathered on the colour of eyes, hair etc and displayed this in the floor book. Afterwards, the children started to discuss bones! Some fantastic comments were put into our floor book, Felix told us "Our legs have big bones and a knee so it can bend in the middle". Ros told us the bones in our spines are built up like a tower, and Louis told us our skull protects our brain. What clever children we have! Mrs Blain had lots of x-rays to show the children, she got the lightbox out and the children had great fun looking at all the x-rays and trying to figure out which part of the body it was. They all thought the x-ray of the leg with the screws in it was a bit "Yuchy".
Snack was muffins, jam and oranges with a choice of milk or water to drink. As we are focusing on writing this week the children were asked to write their own snack cards and what a great job they made of them.
Mrs Brown continued to work with the children on their jigsaw skills. Finlay and Felix worked as a team and completed a fifty piece puzzle together. Mrs Black was busy with the children at the writing table.
Get Together Time was busy, busy, busy today. We listened to Ben A telling us what he got up to with Buddy Bear at the weekend. It sounds like the pair of them have had a fab time dressing up as Batman and Darth Vader and watching Real Steel with yummy treat bowls. It was just a pity that Ben was feeling poorly, but he told me Buddy gave him lots of cuddles and that made him feel much better. It was Eliza's turn for Show & Tell, she brought in Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle. They were both very sparkly and beautiful, Eliza told us all about her favourite toys and what they can do, and she was excellent at answering the children's questions.
As we had been displaying all our information about the colour of our hair and eyes, Mrs Blain read a story called Ginger Nut. It was about a little boy called Calum MacGregor who had blonde hair and the rest of his family had red hair! He was feeling a little left out because of this and tried lots of ways to make his hair ginger!
