Starfish Preschool Weekly Update 20/01/2023

Starfish have had another brilliant week looking at shapes and the Monster Phonic characters. 

We have introduced two more Monster Phonic characters this week – U-Hoo and Cool Blue. We have also received some new traditional tales, songs and non-fiction books involving all the Monster Phonics characters and the children have loved acting out the stories and songs with the character toys. 

In Maths, we have introduced the square shape, looking at what a square looks like. The children then went on a square hunt around the classroom. Starfish loved spotting all the different squares on the walls, floor and even the ceiling! 

We had a very exciting morning on Wednesday as it started to snow! After watching the snow, the children noticed that the flour in our tuff tray looked like snow and were keen to explore what they could do with it. Starfish made snowmen, made cups of tea and traced patterns in the flour.
