Happy Birthday Bear…
This week the little Acorns have been enjoying the book ‘Postman Bear’ by Julia Donaldson. In the story bear prepares for his birthday by writing invitations to his friends and posting them to each of their homes. This inspired us to write our own party invitations and take turns in posting them, we even had our very own postman outfit especially for the occasion.
Then just like bear the children worked really hard to find the correct ingredients and bake their own cakes.
The children each took a bear to our snack tea party where we sang songs ( Happy Birthday was a firm favourite, with many repetitions!), and were treated to party food where we finally got to enjoy our delicious cakes.
The children were also busy spending lots of time outdoors, making the most of the brighter weather. Our new bubble pond which was very kindly donated to us, went down a treat. Especially when the wind blew. It was a pleasure to see the joy on the faces of our little Acorns as bubbles filled our outdoor area.
With our little Acorns still showing such a keen interest in our new Julia Donaldson collection we will be basing lots of our play and learning and the story ‘Hide and Seek Pig’ next week and will look forward to seeing how the children’s imagination evolves around the book.
