Makaton – This is a language using signs and symbols; we are going to learn ‘sorry’

Playhouse Activities This Week – This week we have been creating lots of ladybirds & have made ladybird biscuits. We’ve measured our sunflowers. We’ve played some ring games. We’ve had a look at different life cycles.

Playhouse Activities Next Session – Next week we are going to be reading the Sun Safe story .. Slip, Slop slap! Sam is very interested in Egyptians so we’ll be dressing up as mummies. Our school ready children will also have a look at Egyptian letters. We’ll talk about keeping fit and how exercise effects our bodies. We’ll also have an ice cream parlour! We have our first Stay & Play session.

Storytime – On Tuesday next week Mrs Bacon will be visiting the Playhouse for Storytime, as she starts to meet our Rising Fives.
