Welcome to Peach Tree Class.

A warm welcome back from half-term to all our peaches and parents. The children have all settled back in very quickly this week and the warm weather has helped us enjoy and explore outside learning alot more. Our nursery rhyme focus this week has been Twinkle Twinkle little star and the children have thoroughly enjoyed learning the words and singing this. Our art area has been filled with star-shaped painting, star printing in foam and sensory bags filled with stars and gel. Our home corner has been popular this week with children making lunch and teas for their friends. Water play (making lemonade) is also in full swing with the lovely weather we have had this week and our outside environments have seen the majority of Peach children choosing to do their learning.  

 

Cant you sleep little bear-

Our book this week has been about a little bear who cannot go to sleep. Peaches have enjoyed the story and the activities/ environments around it. Our art area consisted of bear head making, lantern creating and bear colouring using paint dobbers. Our home corner is always a favourite with real food to practice our cutting skills and to make dinners for our friends. We even learn some colours and shapes on the interactive screen. The highlight of the week has to be making our teddy bear shortbreads, lying on a chocolate pillow and wrapped in puff pastry.
