Starfish Preschool Weekly Update 23/06/2023

Starfish have made the most of the sunshine this week and the heat has not stopped their learning. 

Throughout the week, we have talked about how we can stay safe in the sun and why it is important. Everytime we went into our outside area, the children remembered to check they were wearing a sun hat, they had plenty to drink and had a top up of sun cream after lunch. 

Whilst in the outside area, the children worked collaboratively to make music! They used lots of different instruments and played them altogether, keeping to a steady beat and even creating songs to go with it. It was lovely to see them all work together to create and explore. 

We have also created our own suns to hang in the classroom. The children painted paper plates yellow and then used different yellow materials to collage their sun. They were very creative and used the scissors to cut the yellow paper and card into different shapes and sizes. 

In phonics, we have continued to learn new sounds and the children have now been introduced to the ‘s’, ‘a’, ‘t’ and ‘p’ sounds. They have been brilliant at listening out for words that start with those letters. We have also been looking at syllables and worked out how many syllables are in each of our names with the most being 4 and the least being 1.
