Rabbits and Foxes News January 2017

A big welcome to Sarah, Peter and Sizuo who started with us at the beginning of the month!

Also, very Happy Birthday to Sophia and Dasha who turned 3 this month.

We have been very busy since we came back from Christmas, settling back into our routines and finding out what everyone has been doing over the Christmas break. We have discussed our New Year Resolutions – it was great to hear the children’s own resolutions. Our group resolution is tidy up our rooms after we have finished playing!

IMG_0492We are now focusing our learning around Scotland. In the run up to Burns’ Night, we learned a lot about Robert Burns’ story, about Scottish food and types of Tartan. Everyone was busy making Tattie Scones, Shortbread and their own tartan. Whilst making their tartan, the children told us which patterns they were making and how many strips of paper they were using for each colour. We have also been focusing on some Scottish nursery rhymes and songs. Our favourite seems to be Coulter’s Candy/Ally Bally. We also had a really fun tea party – parents and siblings came along to do some ceilidh dancing and have some of our Tattie Scones and Shortbread!

We have just started to discuss a little bit about Chinese New Year. We have seen pictures of Chinese costumes, food and festivals and we discussed why this is at a different time of year from ours. The children have also seen come Chinese lettering and had a go at copying it with black paint.

IMG_0608The Foxes have been looking at their colours and have been exploring different objects in messy play. They have also been having a look at our story stones – these are stones with different pictures painted on to them – we have been discussing what these are and are building up to try and string together some of them.

Our extra activities are back into full swing with Tatty Bumpkins, fruit shop shopping, music with Lizzie and Sophia, Enjoy-A-Ball, Forest Schools and our Care Home visits now happening regularly.
