Summer Term Week 11

We have welcomed a few more children back this week and it has been wonderful to see their faces and enjoy their company as we head towards the end of the term! Only two weeks left now and we are filling those with lots of activities and planning lots of fun. We will sadly miss our annual butterfly picnic but we are enjoying the back garden during our sessions, finding frogs and doing some gardening jobs too. We will be making willow crowns for our graduation and we will be videoing the children singing and sharing that on facebook we hope and then will video each child individually getting their┬ácertificate and gift from us to email you. I have really enjoyed taking the graduation photos and we have had lots of orders which is brilliant – we have obviously not been able to do any fundraising so we hope you are pleased with the photos and place orders for them!

The children this week have played weddings and dressing up, they have built castles and bridges. They have welcomed back old friends and loved playing together. We have worked hard in the garden this week and have been doing some clearing up jobs too – encouraging the children to help us litter pick and tidy up the garden. Lots of potion making and bike riding too! The group times have been well planned as always and we have been focusing on numbers and letters, co-ordination, getting dressed into outfits. We have been learning how to take care of watercolour paints too, choosing particular colours to make cup cakes for our wedding party. We have learnt about different kinds of Bears in the Violet group and played Mrs Bears Honey followed by honey on toast for snack! The children generate a huge amount of art work! We have saved lots of it for you in your special books – please do book in for an appointment if you are not currently attending. Children who are attending will be given their special books during their last week to take home and treasure.

We hope you all have a lovely weekend and see you next week!
