Recommended Posts

What exciting activities have you got planned for your children this week?

We are taking boats we made last week to the pnd in the local park to see if they sail (fingers crossed there wont be too many upset children if any of them sink) we are then going strawberry picking on our way back to school. We will then be using the strawberries to make strawberry shortcake

We have two dogs at the preschool (toy ones SPOT and DOT) that children can take home/holiday/day out. Similar to Barnaby Bear, the blooming things are very well travelled, over the last two years they have been to Spain, Australia, Scotland, France, Turkey, Euro Disney 4 times!! You name it they have been there!! xD Over the year all the children get to take them home with them and complete a diary of what they have done and where they have been. It is a brilliant way to get parents involved and for children to talk about their home/family/community. :(

 

Anyway back to the story, on Friday we had a day of celebration, because it was their 2nd birthday. The week before we made invites and decorations and on the day we made stick puppets of them and decorated biscuits with yellow icing and chocolate buttons. Some of the children made cards for them at home and brought them in!! It was a really great day and we look forward to next year when they are 3!! :o

Thanks for this Shiny - you've given me a great idea about how to re-introduce Barnaby Bear. He's been out of circulation for a while (we have a small group and everyone had taken him home). Might be just the thing to get him going again!

Volcanoes for us this week. A child came in with a mini volcano made fron volcanic rock he got on his hols so this has sparked a huge interest in this. Promised child next time he was in would do the volcano experiment.

Ice-cream parlour set up outside as the children keep pretending they are serving from the windows of our play house in ice-cream van sought of way so thought we would extend this and got lots of sundae dishes etc. Also doing sock puppets in an extension of an observation last week when doing feet printing of the children pretending their socks were talking to each other when they were putting them back on.

Will be continuing with our sea role play area which was brought on by the children's interest in holidays etc the week before....it went on all last week and hopefully will carry on to some extent this week.

 

Just like denisse the children also keep using the outside 'tree house' to sell ice creams so going to change that today into an ice cream parlour!!!

 

Have fun everyone :o

I've made chocolate playdough and just to help out I've finished a big box of thorntons so we can use the box and trays to make mini chocs :o

We went to the strawberry farm last week then made strawberry & marshmallow kebabs as a threading activity!

We're also making boats this week then taking them to the brook to see if they float on wed - have you been taking a peek at my planning xD:(

Yes we are having home grown new potatoes for snack tomorrow.

 

We have been to the local farm shop this afternoon. We picked strawberries that we are making into jam on Wednesday.

Also having a role play farm shop with real fruit and veg from the farm shop. (It's all their old stuff that they can't sell. A bit wrinkly but the children will enjoy it)

We dug up our early variety of potatoes today. The children enjoyed washing them and removing the skins, we cooked them and then had them for snack. I must plant some at home next year they were delicious. We close for the summer holls on Thursday so I hope our veg plot doesnt look too bad when we return in Sept. It was funny last year as our pod peas had dried up so much over the summer , we used them as shakers!

We too spent this morning harvesting our potatoes got over 80 so we were very pleased!!!

 

Went in this afternoon (when we're closed) to weigh them and the other supervisor had taken them home to prepare them for cooking tomorrow! Wasn't very pleased as the children would have enjoyed preparing them.

 

I'm off to SENCO training tomorrow and start working at Glastonbury Weds night straight after work!!

Wow. We are doing our potatoes too this week. Not sure we will beat 80 although they look a lot healthier than last year. Going to Chiltern Open Air Museum tomorrow which will be good as it should be sunny. Brick making, candle making and a lot of tired littles legs...

:o We're covering eyes this week as part of learning about ourselves. we've got the role play area as an opticians and the children loved the glasses today some of them looked really cute "Like the boy in stuart little "one said . We also made good use of the lovely weather and played outside for both sessions which was erally nice apart form the 1 ton of sand from the sandpit in the children,s shoes all over the carpet !!!! but a good day was had by all.
