Welcome to March’s update, on what has been going on here at Sticky Finger’s.
We have celebrated many birthdays within the group recently and even had the chance to enjoy the snow. We are hoping it starts warming up soon and starting to feel more like spring. The days get brighter and the warmer it gets the more time we can spend outside, especially on our garden, which will be soon be revamped ready for planting new vegetables and flowers.
Easter is just around the corner and thoughts go to where has this term gone. We enjoyed learning about The Chinese New Year and the children had fun making a Chinese Dragon and dancing around the classroom taking it in turns to be the leader, we also tasted some Chinese delicacies at snack time. The children have also been busy making all of their crafts for Mother’s Day ready for this Friday at the Mother’s Day Tea Party.
We are very pleased to announce that we will be going ahead with hot school meals and are delighted with the positive response we received from all of the parents here at Sticky’s. Please look out for a letter informing you of next terms choices for your child.
This term topic is all about Animals and Patterns, we have welcomed our new Visitor Clare who works as a veterinary nurse in a local vets practice, She kindly came in and visited us with Ham the pig and Horse (nameless) Clare asked all the children what name she should give the horse, Clare wrote the responses down for her daughter to choose. The children got the chance to help bandage Mr Ham the pig. The children loved their visit from Clare and Listened well to Clare’s instructions. We are now excited to visit Empire Farm to see all of the other animals.
Coach Jon, from Dinky Tennis, is continuing with us, teaching the children lots of skills such as balancing, coordination, gross motor skills, working together, listening and much more! As a result this will see the children develop by playing sending and receiving games (mastering Dinky Tennis!)
