What's New at Upton?

Week Commencing 17th July 2017



Next week in the 0-2 room the children will be taking part in their summer activities! They shall be using different textures to create their summer collages.

In Pat a Cake the children will have to opportunity to mix and play with flour we shall be adding a warm liquid so the children can really explore the texture.

In the garden we shall be having story time using our story sacks and we shall be singing nursery rhymes using our own instruments the children will have made and painted.

The children will also be having the chance to paint with water and using the pavement chalks creating their very own pictures on the wall. Tummy time for the babies will be in the garden giving them the advantage of strengthening their muscles and seeing the world from a different angle.

Toddler Room  

Next week in Toddlers the children are going camping we will encourage the children to make dens and tents both in the garden and in the toddler room.

We shall be busy making binoculars to look at nature and we shall be fishing in the water tray, the children will be making numbered magnetic fish to extend their learning in number recognition.

The children will also be having a camp out in the garden making and artificial fire out of paper and a torch to create the illusion of a living fire; we shall be introducing safety talk for the children to recognise that we need to be very careful around fires. The children will be making collage fires and painting with marshmallows and playing with marshmallow playdough.

In the tuff spot we shall be creating a forest camp site for the small world people to visit.

The children will be learning new songs to sing around the camp fire and we shall also be going on a big nature trail and making bird feeders for our little friends. 

Pre-school Room   

In our Preschool room this week the children will be making “when I was little cards”. To remind them on how big they have grown. we shall be looking at their favourite toy and singing lots of their favourite songs. Before we have to say good bye, to the children who are gong to Primary School.

The children will also be exploring lots of different textures with playdough encouraging their fine manipulation skills with rolling and patting the dough into the shape of their names. In the sticky swamp the children will be writing their names. In yoga the children will be learning a new pose and we shall put all their moves to music.
