Mad about Minibeasts
2gether have had a busy start to the term with several new children joining the group. They are getting used to the daily routines of taking off their coats, clearing away and have begun the new topic of Minibeasts.
Children have learnt several new songs including; ‘there’s a worm at the bottom of the garden’ and ‘five little speckled frogs’. They have had fun searching for pretend minibeasts in the sand, water and bubbles.
Children will now be moving onto the habitats of minibeasts; painting and making models of them. We are also hoping to welcome a minibeast specialist into one of our sessions where children and parents will have an opportunity to handle some giant snails and other creepy crawly creatures.
2gether children continue to make use of Class Kipper’s outside space three times per week (Monday/Wednesday/Friday) and are growing in confidence when exploring the climbing equipment and scooters.
Children have also been using the theme of minibeasts to develop their fundamental movement skills; sliding, crawling and jumping. We hope to continue to see as many parents as possible join us each Friday. ‘Family Fridays’ enable parents to join their child in our setting.
