We will be creating our own imaginary buckets in the craft room- painting sea creatures as well as creating sea creatures out of dough to put in our buckets.

In the garden we will be using buckets to build sand castles, buckets of water to  wash the cars and also playing a sensory bucket game( feeling - and guessing what's inside)

We will be making buckets of jelly surprises to take home.

Rainbow fish


We will be exploring lights and colour this week as we create our own little rainbow fish using a variety of different materials and we will also be working together to help create a light box to use in our under the sea dark den.

We will be having fun in our sensory room, discovering and exploring torches, bubble lamps, lava lamps,sand timers and much more.

We will also be creating little light up Rainbow Fish using milk bottles and fairy lights.

In the craft room we will be filling different size containers and measuring jugs and finding out which holds the most and least.

We will be talking all about friendship- about sharing and caring and will be rewarding children for their kind behaviour with little shiny fish scales, as well as encouraging children to reward others too.

In our busy Lizzie's room we will be colouring rainbow fish by numbers and taking part in lots of turn taking games with our friends.
