This week the children have been practicing Yoga.
They started by copying the adults moves, focusing on controlled movements, then holding a pose for a few seconds (this is very tricky).
As the week progressed some children wanted to show
others in the group a move to copy.
we all stood like still statues,
Balanced on one leg.
crouched down low.
The children have enjoyed this activity, lots of chatting and laughing about washing at home after dinner and who does the washing up.
This week has been very quiet, as you can see from the pictures the children have been very engaged and concentrating hard, as they spread the foam bricks with shaving foam so they will stick to another brick to build there tower.

WORLD BOOK DAY
The children had a busy day today. Firstly they went to the costume parade in the big hall. The children clapped and waved as they watched the children walk across the stage. At the end the Caterpillar children all walked up and down the catwalk with their bears and magnifying glass (they were looking for bears), all the school clapped and waved to them it was good fun!
Next the children went on a bear hunt in the school ground, they have been listening to the story at small group time and already know lots of the actions and words.
To finish our bear hunt we had a picnic and
every one was welcome including our bears who had been hiding.
Next Thursday is WORLD BOOK DAY Caterpillar children are going on a BEAR HUNT!
Children attending are welcome to dress up or wear their normal nursery clothes, all children attending will make bear ear head bands.
Carpet time this week was Newspaper toss. Each child scrunched up a large sheet of newspaper into a tight ball, before throwing into a blue or yellow bowl.
Later in the week they had a two team race , it was fast and furious and the children loved it!
Sensory obstacle course
Exploring gloop and paint
Welcome to our new children starting this January, enjoy the photographs of the children exploring Caterpillar room.
Well what a busy week the children have had, watching parts of reception, KS1 & KS2 performances, using the big apparatus in the school hall, story time in santa's grotto (Santa said it was ok). We also can't forget their own rehearsal for their sing-a-long.
Thank you to all the parents and family who came to support their children in their Christmas Sing-a-Long . The children performed amazingly well, remembering lots of the words and actions (it's very daunting walking into a room full of 30 grown-ups).
They must have used a lot of energy as they hardly moved whilst eating their party food (thank you parents for a lovely selection of foods).
Our Pyjama Day has been a success and we will have a PJ day every Christmas from now on in Caterpillar room. The children went to see father Christmas in his grotto today and sang 'Twinkle twinkle little star' Santa loved it!

SNOW, SNOW AND MORE SNOW
Thursday the 1st of March and at last we had snow , the children are too young to have seen snow in Bath, so we wrapped up warm and off we went for a beautiful Winter walk.
We could see on the children's faces they were excited , but this made them almost lost for words.

Please can parents/carers remember to bring in gloves and hat every day you child attends. The children go outside every day regardless of the weather conditions. Thank you
EXPLORING CATERPILLAR ROOM
Today the children built an amazing structure.
The adult helped by reminding the children they should only build four bricks high, to keep everyone safe.
Our Story Corner
Every day the children are read stories in this area, either individually or in a small group where the adult will use story props and prompt cards. The following week the children have free access to these resources and will often tell the story to themselves or more frequently with another child.
