This week has been a super busy week with lots of exciting things happening. On Monday, we all went on a big coach to the Wildlife Oasis park, it was very exciting and on the way we all enjoyed looking out of the coach windows at the animals in the fields. Once we got there we had a look around in our groups, we saw lots of different animals and reptiles. Some of us where super brave holding and touching different animals such as snakes, stick insects and a snail. We spoke about how they all felt to touch and how the animals moved, if they moved slowly or fast and observed the differences and similarities between them and us. We enjoyed our lunch together in the conservatory and did a little more exploring after then headed back to Mucky Pups.
We have filled up our kindness jar with all of our pebbles for being so kind to each other so we all had a little treat at snack to celebrate. Jean made us all a kindness certificate to take home too for being amazing helpers and being kind.
This week is the end of term and sadly we have to say goodbye to our big group the "Dalmatians" we have all watched you grow into the amazing, wonderful and kind children you are. You are all more than ready for your next adventure to school and we are all proud to of been apart of your journey. But don't be too sad as we will still see a lot of you at kid's club i'm sure!
This week at Mucky Pups we have been developing our physical skills both inside and out. Inside with Jean, we have been practicing our jumping skills and seeing how far from a marker we could jump. Everyone had lots of fun with this, once we had done our big jump we marked it with tape and wrote on our names. Outside, we have been using wood and crates to make bridges to walk over, we put out our arms to help us balance as we walked over, some of us didn't need to do this and were super brave going across.
We have made some delicious fruit kebabs for snack this week, we decided to use bananas, apples and pears. We helped Steph cut up the fruit using knives and chopping boards. We spoke about being safe with the knives, keeping our fingers away from them and making sure we are sat down when cutting. Once all the fruit had been cut we then melted some chocolate and got to drizzle it all over the fruit, we all enjoyed these at snack time.
Our big dalmatians have been very helpful this week setting up for dinner and snack time, helping wipe the tables, brush the floor and putting out the plates and cutlery for lunch time. Our kindness jar is nearly full with everyone being so kind and helpful, keep up the good work Mucky Pups!!
In circle time dalmatians have been looking at sizes, building towers and seeing if it is "Bigger" or "Smaller" than themselves. We made some amazing towers and castles. The chihuahuas have been reading lots of fabulous stories and looking at the characters in them, the similarities and differences and whats happening in the pictures.
Our story of the month is "Smiley shark" this story is all about friends and how to be a good friend to others. The children have enjoyed exploring the sea life creatures in the tuff tray and looking at videos of different sea life on the kindle.
