World Book Day
Read all about the fun we had on World Book Day plus see what else we have been getting up to!
On the afternoon of Thursday 2nd March, we celebrated World Book Day by inviting mums, dads, brothers, sisters, grannies, grandpas, aunties and uncles to join us to share our favourite books. It was really lovely to see so many of you able to join us especially as the children had been beside themselves with excitement about it all day! It was particularly lovely to see lots of the younger siblings enjoying exploring nursery and having a go at the story themed colouring sheets available. I would like to say a very big thank you to all of you who were able to come. I know some of you work and were unable to attend but I have other similar sessions planned for the future so hopefully you will be able to join us for one of those.
Those children whose parents couldn't make it were not left out, however, as we were lucky enough to have some year 2 reading buddies come and join us to share books so a good time was had by all.
And that's not the only thing we have been getting up to; it's been a very busy couple of weeks. From ice balloon investigations to planting sunflowers to concocting delicious mud delicacies in our Messy Kitchen, we have been on the go and learning lots! We even had a go at some drama where we listened to some relaxing music and pretended to be a snowflake floating to the ground, a butterfly fluttering from flower to flower and then acted out a whole day at the beach including consuming copious amounts of ice cream (pretend I hasten to add!)
Another big thank you to all of you who have provided us with baby photos. These are on display in our Tadpole Room and a number of the children are fascinated by them. Their challenge was to draw a picture of themselves as they are now and display it next to their baby photo so they could identify ways they have changed. This provided some super results!
As ever, we have lots more exciting activities planned for the weeks ahead. Two we started today include a "baby changing station" (who would have thought "babies" could get so sore that they need to be smothered head to toe in nappy cream!) and a nature investigation in our pond area where today's group found an "enormous golden Big Bad Fish" in the pond and a frog. I look forward to seeing what else they might find!
