  • Happy Tooth, Sad Tooth

    Published 02/02/18, by Alice Baker

    We have been talking about healthy eating this week and what foods are good or bad for our teeth. The children decided which foods would make our teeth happy or sad and sorted them. The children loved playing musical shapes! They danced to the song and when the music stopped they had to find the correct shape. Some great moves Busy Bees!

  • Flower Pot Game

    Published 24/01/18, by Alice Baker

    We have had a busy few weeks back after the New Year, focusing on number this term so far and have joined in with lots of different activities to help us recognise our numbers. We have played the Flower Pot game where we had to count the leaves and see who had the most and we also enjoyed matching up the numbered pieces of melon to the correct number of seeds. This week we thouroughly enjoyed dialing a telephone number using our excellent number recognition skills to call Mr Tumble! Great work Busy Bees!

  • Goldilocks and the Three Bears

    Published 23/11/17, by Alice Baker

    This week we have enjoyed watching a silent story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears where we told the story ourselves in our own words. We then used a series of pictures to order and sequence the story correctly, recalling what happens throughout. The children also enjoyed exploring the Goldilocks tuff spot ordering the bears by size. We have also drawn snowmen in the flour tuff spot using brushes to create our pictures. "It looks like snow!" Liam said. We have always discussed what foods are healthy and what foods we should just have as a treat. The children sorted the food into the two lunch boxes, a healthy lunch box and an unhealthy lunch box.

  • Skittles experiment

    Published 12/10/17, by Alice Baker

    The Busy Bees have been exploring what happens when you add warm water to skittle sweets! We found out that the water changed to different colours becuase the food colouring had seeped from the sweets.. We have also been enjoying messy crafts in the tuff spot, making aeroplanes to fly through the sky. This week we have read a story about people who help us - doctor, and enjoyed joining in with the doctors and nurses role play.

    This week in the Busy Bees we have been exploring shapes and completed a giant shape match! We have used coloured stickers and stuck them onto the matching piece of coloured card. We have enjoyed the sunshine in the playground, having lots of fun playing on the bikes and trikes. We have also been creative and made a Peppa Pig collage. The children used their fine motor skills to scrunch tissue paper into little balls then stick them onto our picture, we added a little sparkle with glitter too.
