F1 - Dough Disco
Dough Disco is a fun activity which combines the use of play dough with a series of hand and finger exercises designed to improve fine muscle control. The movements develop children’s fine and gross motor dexterity, hand eye coordination and self-esteem.
The children all had a piece of pink sparkly play dough, that Miss Frisby had made, that smelt of strawberries and we all joined in with Shonette Bason Wood to do the dough disco! Take a look at the link and join in with the fun!
In other news, we have had two very successful parent Numeracy Workshops where a parent or carer made a numeracy activity with their child and Mrs Fenton and myself showed them different ways to use them at home to consolidate and extend their child’s learning. Thank you for all those who attended!
Tree-mendous Tuesday was a muddy and puddle-filled child heaven! I know the saying is ‘as happy as pigs in mud’ but our children were ecstatic as they stood in the muddiest puddles ever and then in even bigger rain water filled puddles to wash their wellies! We also met a huge slug that a lot of our friends were keen to hold! Also, we spotted lots of fairy houses on the trees. We think the fairies had moved in for winter. However, when we knocked on the doors no one answered, but Miss Frisby did see one fly up to the top of the tree! I don’t think they felt like having visitors that day - maybe they hadn’t cleaned up! Look on the blog to see our super phonics, fabulous maths, delicious baking and our energetic, sponsored obstacle challenge. Another action-packed week in F1!
