St Patrick’s Day!
St Patrick’s Day!

We have had lots of fun listening to songs about St. Patrick’s day such as I’m a Little Leprechaun, the Leprechaun dance and Green for St Patrick’s Day. We made lots of lovely crafts like a colourful rainbow coming out of a pot of gold, pasted green crepe paper to decorate our shamrocks and painted Leprechaun faces and hats with orange squares for his beard. We hope everyone has a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Spring Time Crafts
Spring Time Crafts

Spring is finally in the air and we have had lots of fun listening to Spring time songs about the flowers in bloom, baby animals and the colours that are all around us. We painted paper plate ladybirds, decorated colourful butterflies with crepe paper and decorated crepe paper flowers in our lolly stick flower boxes. Spring is here!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
Happy Valentine’s Day!

We had a lovely day making our Valentine’s cards for our Mummys and Daddys. We pasted colourful squares into the love hearts on the front which read ” I love you to pieces” and on the inside we put a cut out of our handprint and footprint which we all made using purple paint. Around this we wrote ” I love you form the tips of my fingers to the tips of my toes”. We hope you like them! 🙂

Wibbly Wobbly Jellyfish

When we were learning about the letter J, we painted multi-coloured jellyfish on paper plates with colourful crepe paper tentacles. We also tied in learning about lots of sea animals by playing with jigsaws making octopus, seals, crabs, fish and jellyfish. We also made rainbow fish by pasting lots of colourful squares to decorate him. Come take a look 🙂

Happy Birthday!

Birthdays are a very special time and what better way than to celebrate with a big yummy cake and party with your classmates! Everyone enjoyed watching the candles being blown out and eating chocolate treats, cake and crisps. Party songs are also essential to dance along to! It was a very fun 4th birthday for one of our lovely students 🙂

The Three Little Pigs
The Three Little Pigs

For Story-time we listened to an animated musical version of the Three Little Pigs. Music and animation holds our attention much better than listening to a narrated story so we really enjoyed this musical version! We then decorated  our own three little houses where we pasted lolly sticks on one house for the stick house, scrunched up and pasted yellow crepe paper to paste on the straw house and pasted red squares onto the brick house. We then stuck on our three little pigs beside their houses with the big bad wolf in the corner. We had lots of fun making these….come check them out! 🙂

Learning to play Jingle Bells!
Learning to play Jingle Bells!

We have had lots of fun shaking the bells and making them jingle along to one of our all time favourite Christmas songs as well as shaking the maraccas and playing on the xylophone! Listening to music is our favourite time of the day and we have been learning the actions to lots of fun Christmas songs such as 5 Little Elves, I’m a Little Snowman, S.A.N.T.A., Snowflake and I’m a Dancing Christmas Tree all by Super Simple Songs and Kids TV 123 on You-tube.

We have been very busy making lots of festive crafts for the season such as painted Christmas trees with stuck on jewels, paper plate snowmen, a sponge painted Winter tree scene with finger painted now drops, Rudolph paper plate faces and of course, Santa Clause! The children were busy working on their cutting, colouring, painting and pasting skills and what a wonderful job they did. Lets have a look at our fabulous art!
