Birthdays!

Monday, November 19, 2018

Continuing our theme of celebrations – this week we have been learning about birthdays. For Show and Tell we looked at photos of family birthdays and celebrations. We made birthday cards and all sang birthday songs. We baked a birthday cake and took a slice home in our party bags. We played some party games like musical statues, musical bumps and sleeping lions. We enjoyed moving to the music and the games are very good for developing our listening and attention skills too. We shared books about birthdays and parties as well, including The Big Blue Train and The Kitchen Disco. We even had birthday candles in the playdough!

Welcome back after the half-term break. This half-term we will be looking at Celebrations around the World. We began by exploring 5th November fireworks.

We learned the rhyme Remember, Remember the 5th November and we make lots of firework art inside and outside. We did firework dances with streamers and learnt about the Gunpowder Plot. We also talked about fire safety.
