This week a mother of one of our children came again to hold a yoga session for the children. The children enjoyed exploring a variety of poses and we look forward to the next session.
On Tuesday the children had their weekly forest day. They enjoyed collecting leaves and engaging in imaginative and construction play with natural materials.
In English this week, we have learnt the song ‘Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes’. We discussed together how not just our faces express emotions, but also that our body has a language. The children explored hunched shoulders, hung heads, droopy bodies, knocked knees and scrunched toes as ways to express a variety of emotions. Later in the week, we danced to a remix of the song by Lenny Pearce.
In Vorschule, the children started their workbooks which have a variety of activities to develop the skills needed for school.
The children continue to enjoy the playdough they made last week. One of our teachers kindly brought a variety of tools for the children to use with the playdough and they were excited to explore these in the group.
