This week in the hamster room we have been building dens and reading stories in the role play corner. We have had magnet shapes to arrange and build with. We have a farm on the sensory tray with different sensory materials for the hamsters to explore. The living eggs also arrived at the setting and the hamster enjoyed listening to Teresa talk about the living eggs and how we were going to watch the chicks hatching from them soon!
Wow! what a fantastic week we have had. Our living eggs arrived, all the children have been fascinated watching them hatch from their eggs, grow in size and change in colour. Next week they should be settled enough for the children to hold, which we are all very excited about.
This week we have been focusing on looking after our bodies. Discussing what foods we should be eating to have a balanced healthy diet. The importance of keeping our teeth, hair and bodies clean and washing our clothes.
All week the children have been working hard to achieve their Hand-Washer Award. Ensuring they wash their hands thoroughly with soap.
