We have had lots of sport sessions, with football being a favourite, both inside and out.
Uno, the card game has also featured pretty heavily. Lots of the children love it, and so does Michaela and Clare!
Chess is still something that children enjoy playing at free choice time, and some of them have been teaching the rules of the game to others as well, which is really nice to see.
Big and Middle group have made lots of really nice colouring pictures, and also had some drawing competitions, while Little group made collages and paper planes to play with.
One of the children have brought in a mini monopoly board game, which has attracted the attention of some of the older children, and Joe had a group of children from little, middle and big helping complete a Where's Wally Jigsaw.
Michaelas group have been outside to collect leaves to make an Autumn collage with some autumn coloured paints as well.
Middle group have also joined with Big group to do a favourite activity of Pixel Art, using squared paper and some pixel ideas that they can copy. This seems to entertain everyone. Even the ones who aren't interested in making any kind of art, somehow Pixel art overcomes them all.
There has been more craft sessions towards the end of this week, with both Middle and Little group making large artwork of a giant bat using tissue paper and paint, and another of a giant pumpkin using similar materials.
All the children have been keen to use lots of our colouring pages, and just recently, we have added lots of Superhero ones for them to complete.
Big group have been playing some competitive dodgeball with a variant of King and Queen. Each team chooses a VIP in the team who will then wear a marker, and if they get hit, the whole team is out. It's up to the others to protect, and attempt to get the opposing teams VIP. This game brings out some interesting tactics to win.
As a treat today, the children had an option to watch a film, and they all chose The Little Rascals. Anyone who didn't want to watch had the options of lots of different board games, colouring, free drawing or pool.
If you have recently taken part in our survey and realised that this blog is here, please leave a comment and say hello! This is here so that you can get more of an understanding of what goes on here with your children, and it's a platform for you to tell us what they like to do at home, that maybe we can roll into our own planning too.
