Me 2 Club - Children's Work 2017-18
What a messy week! The children have had lots of fun exploring different sensory messy play such as jelly, pasta and shaving foam! They also enjoyed making their glittery sensory bottles to take home. It was very noisy in the classroom this week with all of the instruments being played with as well as the exploration area being a shaky pasta pot station! We all loved investigating the sensory den with the different sounds, smells and textures and using the torches to explore in the dark!
This week we focused on our friends at school, how we play nicely together by sharing and taking turns. The children enjoyed looking at the pictures of all of their class friends and naming them as well as using photographs for creative collage activities. We also made some sparkly friendship bracelets to give to each other. The favourite activity of the week was baking and decorating our enormous chocolate cake to share with all our friends!
This week our topic gave us lots of opportunities to talk about our families, we looked at lots of photos and coloured and painted lots of pictures, some of the children even enjoyed using the chalk boards outside to draw ‘mummy’. One of our activities this week was to make beautiful photo frames to display or family pictures, lots of the children brought pictures from home and we made a lovely display in the classroom all about our families. The children’s favourite area this week was the home corner, they loved cooking for their families and even watching our pretend TV!
All About Me
This week we all had fun pretending to be Doctors in the Me 2 Club hospital, there were lots of poorly babies and the children were excellent at caring for them. There were lots of creative activities this week and the children enjoyed making paper plate faces and drawing faces using different materials. There was dancing fun during PE as we practiced ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes’ and we finished the week by making delicious pizza faces!
Happy and Sad
This week we looked at the way we feel, we enjoyed making funny faces in the mirrors all around the classroom as well as drawing happy and sad faces in the classroom and during outside play too. We all loved using the play dough this week to make lots of different smiley faces, the googly eyes made us all laugh! The emotions puppets were lots of fun and we tried copying their expressions during one of our activities.
The first week of the new term we welcomed lots of new friends to Me 2 club, we helped them to explore the classroom and play ground and showed them how nicely we all play together and listen to the key workers. We investigated sand and water play and had lots of fun decorating school jumpers for our display. We looked at colours as we painted and used sticking materials to make crayon pictures and we even decorated brightly coloured pencil biscuits to take home and share!
