What's happening NOW at Blue Grass Purple Cow
We thought we would pick up on the interest of some of your travels with a topic called “Send me a Post Card.” So, next week, we are going to be talking about the places we have been, how me might get there and what we might do with our time there. We will be playing “What’s in Kimberly/Gemma's Suitcase?” and trying to figure out what we might need to pack to be comfortable on our trip, whether we are going to California or Colorado, Spain or Scotland. We’re also mixing problem-solving with literacy practice -- we’ve written a few post cards to The Brook, with clues as to the holiday destination. Will the children be able to use the clues to work out where the post card is from?
Meantime in The Orchard, we’re also going to be picking up on the children’s experiences to plan some lovely travel-related activities. Mostly, we are going to be thinking about transportation. How would be get to France? Or to Alaska? What about London or Wales? The Meadow are learning some new words, looking at real fruit to identify. They will no doubt be transporting their fruits in our trolleys, practicing those shopping (and walking) skills inside and out.
We’ve got another great Menu, with Slow Cooked Yankee Style Pulled Pork and Mediterranean Style Paella. The Brook are making Apricot Oaty Crumble Slice on Wednesday – we have never made this one before, so we are all looking forward to this New Try.
W/C 17th of June is FOREST SCHOOL for The Brook (younger Brook and Pre-School). We will be outside all day and the children will need a (labelled) hat and solid sturdy footwear for outdoor play. Trainers are ideal; we request politely that Crocs and sandals are avoided.
