The fun day is fast approaching and we are looking for donations of tombola items and raffle prizes – anything goes!  We would also like any empty screw top wine bottles you have. We are planning a new stall for adults this year!

Please volunteer to help us on the day too – we need you!

Flower Letters

This week in the literacy area we have been continuing to explore letters in the world around us. The children were invited to create letter shapes using some beautiful spring flowers,

“I made a T with sticks.”

We also made an alphabet matching game to help us explore what letters sound like.

We hammered the nails into the wood.

We wrote the letters all by ourselves.

We chose the pictures for each letter and stuck them onto the wood.

Finally we could play our game!


Sticky Shapes

Today in the toddler room the children were making sticky pictures with glue and different coloured shapes. This gave them the opportunity to explore different shapes and discuss how many sides each shape has. The children were thinking about what they could use the shapes for in their pictures and of course enjoyed getting sticky fingers from the glue!

”Mine has a big funny nose!”

”Mind has small legs!”
