Last week, one of the children said, “Let’s make a cake on Tuesday!” Following this child’s idea, on Tuesday we set about mixing the ingredients. We also talked about and planned what kinds of cake we would like to make in future. We were fascinated to watch the digital timer counting down how long it […]
We were delighted to play in the snow. We demonstrated such collaboration while building a snowman. When we became too cold, we independently mixed hot chocolate to drink.
We have enjoyed searching for shapes in our learning environment. Look what we found! Triangles… circles… squares… and rectangles! We collaged our shape pictures to make a shape book for our Reading Area.

Thank you to all the parents and carers who sang, decorated and celebrated with us today!

We were visited by PJ Robot, who taught us how to write like a robot. Start at the top, and move your hand down! Drawing lines with our dance scarves makes our writing hands stronger. “I’m strong!” Why not put some music on and do the robot dance at home!
