"Dear Santa" is our current Talk4writing book and this turned into making our own Santa's workshop in the home corner, wrapping the presents and putting under the tree. We made snow people out of the playdough, got messy in the fake snow and ended the week with a Teddy Bear's picnic!

This week the children have been writing their letters to Santa, getting dressed up, using tweezers on our funky fingers table to put pop-pom fairy lights on the string, washing and caring for the babies and at the end of the week decorating the Christmas tree.  Mark making fun was also had with the cars, making tracks on the large paper with the paint (a great acitivity to develop those muscles in the shoulders and arms!)

This week has been all about farm animals. We have been making warm nests out of spaghetti and straws for the eggs, baking bread (as The Little Red Hen did) and playing with the farm animals in the small world. We have also introduced a new "Funky fingers" song called The Crocodile Snap. Give it a go!

This week we started learning the actions and words for our new Talk4writing book, Dear Zoo. We then investigated the different patterns that could be found on wild animals, made animal prints, built homes for the animals and turned the home corner into a vets.  We made our own Dear Zoo book by thinking of other animals that could be found in the book and the reason why we would "send them back!" The children have also been requesting the Animals in Action song which they may like to share with you at home.

This week we started our new Dough Disco sessions. Have a try at home (see link below). We also continued with our Autumn theme and looked at the changes in colour and texture that occur with leaves.
