We were fortunate to have a lovely visitor called Clare at Pre-School. She brought in her Serama Bantams. They are the smallest breed of chicken in the world. The children learned that the these Bantams are friendly, lay tiny eggs, can live indoors and like to eat mealworms. We were able to hold them.
We made some delicious smoothies with Bananas, Strawberries and Raspberries.
We have all been doing lots of exercises and thinking about being healthy.
We warm up, do our exercises and then cool down.
The children made lovely fruit salads.
The children were asked what makes them healthy.
Below are some of their answers...
A spider spun a bright web in the garden. The children threw the bugs which were caught in the web like the bugs who fly into real webs.
If you look closely you can see real spider eggs on the leaf. The children are avidly watching for them to hatch.
The children have been counting the legs on the spiders they have made and we shared the story 'The Very Busy Spider.
Look at our lovely spider picture display!
During registration we all said "Sawatdi", which is how we say hello in Thai. There were lots of visitors at Pre-School, we met some new children who will be joining us in September.
We have been looking at vegetables that grow above and below the ground.
Sally read the children the story 'The Enormous Turnip'. Much fun was had acting out pulling the 'Enormous Turnip' out of the ground.
We baked some delicious bread after sharing the story 'Little Red Hen'. The bread was glazed with honey to link in with the work we have been doing with Bees.
The children looked at the story sequence and painted pictures which are displayed in the classroom.
