For two weeks we have been following the topic ‘All About Me’. A ‘Me Doll’ template has been sent home to be decorated by your child; these are filtering back into us and will be made into a Welcome Board – the children will be able to stick their name up next to their ‘Me Doll’ when they come into the setting each morning.
The children have decorated paper plates to look like themselves as well as glueing and sticking ‘My Family’ sheets – we think that there may be some wishful thinking with the number of pets that some of your children have! We have made pizza faces and gingerbread people and taken the opportunity to talk about similarities and differences. We also created our own height chart along the wall of Tiddy Hall, all the children and staff were measured and there was lots of chat about shorter, taller, bigger, smaller etc. At snacktime we have been reinforcing ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ and chatting about good manners in general. Next week we begin the topic of Harvest.
