What a colourful week we have had in early years! Our theme has been rainbows and we have enjoyed moulding unicorns out of magical multi-coloured sand and playdough. We have been busy at the creative table making unicorns out of paper plates and decorating our own unicorn masks. We have had lots of fun using syringes to make our own rainbow pictures using edible coloured paint made from natural yoghurt. We have had a very colourful reading area with the lovely story, Rainbow fish. The children have enjoyed exploring the props and identifying the different colours. We have also had lots of fun using the switch activated animals, we enjoyed listening to them singing and making different animal sounds. In phonics we have been practicing our listening and attention skills by identifying animal and everyday object sounds, which we are getting very good at! In RE we are learning about celebrations, on Tuesday we talked about Harvest and explored the story the little red hen. We did some tasting of different vegetables, sweetcorn, peas, carrots and potatoes. On Thursday we loved watching our faces being painted as sunshines, rainbows and clouds. Some children also enjoyed painting Lindsey’s face for her!

We have also been learning to ‘Speak Out and Stay Safe’ with some help from the NSPCC. We have learned about how to keep ourselves safe and the importance of speaking out if we need to talk to someone we trust. More information to follow on Healthy Schools blog.

Have a lovely weekend everyone! See you all on Monday!
