Hurray for Fish
Last week the Acorn Preschool children explored animals under the sea. We have loved reading the story ‘Tiddler’ – which gave us lots of new experiences with sea creatures. Eels, lobsters, jellyfish, sharks and octopus all feature in this story.
To build on the interest of under the sea animals, the children have created artwork through drawing, painting and collage of brightly coloured fish, similar to the story ‘Hooray for Fish’. There are lots of lovely rhyming words in this book.
In the maths area, the children have explored numbers through a magnetic fishing game and also counting how many altogether through the fish bowl game.
The children have even had a go at expressing themselves through movement to music – as different under sea animals, including jellyfish, shark and octopus.
As the weather has been warmer and the sun has been out, the children have enjoyed lots of outdoor play. This week we have helped to grow the various plants, practiced our weaving skills with ribbons and even built an aquarium with sharks!
Song of the week was ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes’ which the children have explored naming parts of their body. They love it when this song gets faster and faster.
Stars of the day last week were Oscar, Tristan, Poppy, Ruby and Myles – well done to you all.
