Squirrels News November 2014
This month the Squirrels have been very creative through painting and gluing. At the start of the month we celebrated bonfire night. We made some beautiful fireworks paintings; we added glitter to make them sparkle like real fireworks. We learnt that fireworks are very “Noisy” and are “hot” so we must not touch them. We watched a clip of fireworks on the Ipad, which had lots of different “colours”. We also looked at some photographs of bonfires, so we decided to create our own bonfire gluings using red, orange and yellow tissue paper. They looked fantastic!
The Squirrels have enjoyed using their imagination with paint. We used different objects to paint with; lollypop sticks, pegs and toothbrushes. Painting with our hands is our favourite! We enjoyed an experience where we painted with our hands and feet, it was great fun walking and running across the paper to make footprints!
As always we have done some more baking this month. We made some yummy fairy cakes which we then decorated. Also some delicious cookies! We are becoming great bakers and are all becoming familiar with the ingredients. We are fantastic at taking turns and sharing! Well done everyone.
We have also liked some quiet times throughout the month where we have been using construction, caring for our babies and using our problem solving skills; with the linking elephants, counting bears and pin boards.
