Rabbits and Foxes News January 2016
Hello everyone, we hope you have had a good start to your year!
As you all know we have been looking at Scotland and its stereotypes. We had the opportunity to make our own tartans, which coincided with our patterns theme. To celebrate Robert Burns, some of us created our own poems: one about Frozen, one about our families and lots more! We even got to try some haggis, which most of us really liked!
We have continued our weekly trips to the library and have been bringing books back about Scotland. We even managed to find The Gruffalo and Room on The Broom in Scots!
We have also been looking at patterns over the last few weeks, to see if we can find them in our environment and to create our own patterns. We made our own tartan kilts. We also had an activity where we could make our own patterns with sticks and pine cones!
Everyone is still doing lots of baking for our snacks and the children have been helping to prepare the fruit for snack time too! We have been discussing with children what is healthy and unhealthy and we made a list and mind map of all our comments!
Our Care Home visits and Forest Schools visits have started back up again with new groups of children! At Forest Schools, it was our first week so we established boundaries and discussed the rules. Then we had a big game of hide and seek. At the Care Home, again with it being our first visit with a new group of children, all the children got to pick a toy to take with them and introduce themselves to everyone!
