WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS WEEK: 

   

Monday

Using puppets or masks can make it easier for children to express themselves. Today the children will be invited to create a puppet show about what might make them feel angry at someone or want to hurt someone. Afterwards, we will ask them for suggestions on what the puppets could have done differently and act them out (Area of Learning: Aware that actions can hurt or harm others/Aware of own feelings from Personal, Social & Emotional Development)

 

Wednesday 

No doubt your children like jumping on the beds at home. At playgroup they love jumping on the floor cushions! We have decided to turn this into a number activity to practise counting to 10, namely Ten Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed (Area of Learning: Recites number names in sequence/Recites numbers to 10 from Mathematics)

PM: Outdoor play plus: Story of the Week, Phonics: Instrumental sounds

 

 

Thursday

 

Pirates featured in the childrens play last week, so we will be staging a pirate- inspired treasure hunt today. We will be challenging the children to find as many different 2D shapes around the hall as they can either by feature (i.e. round, pointy, etc.) or name (Area of Learning: Categorises objects by shape/Uses mathematical names of common 2D shapes from Mathematics).

PM: Outdoor play plus: Story of the Week, Phonics: Instrumental sounds

 

Friday 

There will be lots of paint and different cars, trucks, buses, etc. today for the children to explore mark-making and patterns created by tyre tracks (Area of Learning: Experiments with marks/Looks closely at patterns from Expressive Arts & Design).

PM: Outdoor play plus: Story of the Week, Phonics: Instrumental sounds

Dates for your diary

NEXT COMMITTEE MEETING: Wednesday 16th October, The Old Crown, Uley -  7.45pm. Please come along and support your committee

 

Every year we ask our parents for feedback on a variety of measures, including communication. In line with our feedback from the last academic year, we're endeavouring to improve the transparency between home and playgroup so that you can keep track of your child's learning and sensory experiences.

Each week we now make our playgroup planning available to parents and carers. As well as receiving an email notification, the information is updated on the website, the FaceBook page, and our secret group for current parents and carers. We hope this will help you to enrich your child's learning at home!
