Week 4-8.10 in Lions
Let's have a tea party!
We have come to the end of our first project of the school year – Winnie the Pooh! It has been so lovely to watch the children meet their new friends, Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, and Eeyore. Our little Lions have helped their new friends settle in to the kindergarten, learn about the classroom rules, and learn about safety both inside and outside the school. Alongside this, they have had so much fun making different Winnie the Pooh crafts – there has been so many opportunities for creativity in this project!
The week began with a trip to the school gym to play some parachute games – our Lions loved the chance to work together as a team with the parachute and just have fun!
We have been learning so much during our morning circle times. This week, the children spent some time talking about the classroom rules, as this has been a key focus of our project. They talked about the ways that we can be kind to our teachers and friends by following these rules. We have also been talking about changes in the weather and seasons, as this will be a big part of our next project.
Later in the week, we were back in the gym to play a super fun dressing-up game. The children were divided into three teams of two, to see how many items of clothing they could help their friend put on. It was so much fun, and so silly! This game was great for the children to practice self-care by getting dressed and undressed, as well as learning how to work as a team.
On Thursday, we did a super cool science experiment! We added blue dye to a jar of water and shaving foam to observe how the dye travels through the different liquids. So interesting! The children really enjoyed exploring the texture of the shaving foam, as well as transferring the blue dye to the jar using a dropper – this was a great way to use fine motor skills too!
We have also been busy preparing for Friday’s tea party – on Thursday we created some beautiful decorations for the classroom using watercolour paints. The children then carefully cut around the pictures and decorated them with stickers to display in the classroom – they looked so nice and colourful!
Finally, the day came to have our wonderful tea party! We would like to say a big thank you to all our parents for helping us have such a special morning. We so appreciate the amazing food that you brought, it was so yummy! The children all came with such beautiful outfits and had such a great experience sharing food together and just having fun. It was such a great way to end the project.
Next week, we will begin our second project – Where the Paper Kites Fly. This new project will be all about autumn and the different changes we will see outside in nature. We’re so excited to begin!
Have a lovely weekend,
Your Lions teachers.
