Starfish Preschool Weekly Update 10/2/2023

To end this half term, we have had a Kindness Week in Starfish. We have talked about Valentine’s Day and how we can show we care for others. At the beginning of the week, the children made biscuits, using their thumbs to make a heart shape and adding jam so it looked like a red heart on the top of their biscuit. They were brilliant at weighing out the ingredients and mixing them together. The classroom smelled lovely at the end of the day!

We have also made Valentine’s cards to give to someone we love at home. The children thought hard about who to give their cards to and enjoyed decorating the front of the card using different materials. Starfish also had a go at writing their names in their cards, copying each letter and checking their pencil grip. They were resilient and tried hard to make sure their card was special. 

Starfish have now finished their Castle topic and we managed to decorate our castle at the end of last week. We got all the paints out, using brushes, sponges and rollers to cover the whole castle in different colours and patterns.
