This week we welcomed back our little gems after Christmas and said a warm hello to six new little gems who will now be part of our class. It was great to hear everybody’s news and explore new areas of interest through free play. We built car ramps, related our experiences through art both in groups and individually, researched hedgehogs and spent time getting to know each other again. This week our Nursery Rhyme was ‘wind the bobbin up’ where we used our bodies to explore direction. To progress on this theme we introduced remote control cars which were a great success and promoted great turn taking and directional language. In addition to all of this we talked about staying safe in the toilets and respecting each others privacy.
