At welcome time this morning Mrs Brown showed the children our new tablet. It is a pink Hudl 2 with a blue cover. The children were talking about how you use a tablet safely. Orlaidh said you have to keep it on the table. Hugh stated that you don't put it on the floor incase you stand on it and smash it. Very wise advice. They talked about how important it is to take turns.
We were split between the two rooms this morning. In the crèche room Miss Wallace and Mrs Friel were doing activities with the laptop, the Lego bricks, fairground and shape sorting.
In the mid-hall Mrs Brown was continuing the rhyming bag but with harder words and then the children were drawing pictures of their favourite rhyming words. For messy play we had cloud dough with glitter through it. The Tolo was out which the children were constructing items with. Jamie and Anton made shapes with them. The kitchen was out for role play. Mrs Winsley was supervising the children playing a game on the Hudl which helped the children with learning positional language.
Snack was a choice of Cornflakes or Cherrios.
At Get together time the children chatted about rhyming with Mrs Brown and then voted on which book they would like to have read. The choice was Monkey Puzzle or A Squash and a Squeeze. The majority vote was for Monkey puzzle. The children spoke about what they thought the story was about. As the story progressed the children shouted out the rhyming words.
To finish today we had some action songs. To tie in with the book we did Five Cheeky Monkeys and another favourite was Heads Shoulders Knees and Toes.
