The morning class have been identifying different pairs around the setting this week. it started with a child noticing two crayons were the same which to discussion of pairs. Towards the end of the week the children engaged well in an activity matching different items from the classroom to the correct pair. During the holidays, we painted one of our walls with chalk board paint so the children have been drawing their plans on the wall then making different building with various construction items.
The afternoon class have expressed a great interest this week in writing their name so there have been a lot of mark making activities this week from using their finger to draw letters in salt o using a paintbrush and water to write their initial letter. Some of the children have also been independently writing their names. This week we went on a ‘sensory walk’ around the school to see what different things we could see and hear. The children then completed a checklist and marked off the different things. Other activities this week include threading, football games in the garden and using tweezers to pull objects out of sand.
