24th – 28th April

We’re so happy to be back after the Easter break with your wonderful children, and hope you all had a great Easter! This week we’ll be settling back into the school routine and learning all about Road Safety – a very relevant topic, as developing road safety skills from an early age is hugely important, and will stand to the children as they progress through life. We have already been building a good foundation in road safety awareness throughout the year with our trips to the GAA field, nature walks and spring cleaning walk where the children all wore their hi vis jackets and walked carefully in pairs, looking each way every time before crossing the street – this is a vital habit to encourage and practice with young children. As part of the Road Safety week the children will be doing some related crafts and drama, as well as learning a road safety song.

Stop, Look and Listen (tune of 3 Blind Mice)

Stop, look and listen, stop, look and listen,
Before you cross the road, before you cross the road.
You use your eyes and you use your ears,
And if no traffic at all appears,
Then you cross the road…
Holding an adult’s hand!

Easter holidays!

The Children’s House will close for Easter holidays on Friday 7th April, reopening Monday 24th April

Have a wonderful Easter break everyone!!

(Just in case your children have been talking about dancing birds this week, we’ve had to watch this clip several times every day, they all absolutely love it – we don’t know which is funnier, the dancing bird or his embarrassed looking friend!! https://t.co/KPNZddth5S  – enjoy!!)

 

3rd – 7th April

It’s hard to believe that April’s here already, the year is flying in! We will be talking about the change of month and progression of the year as we always do when the month changes. This week we will also be doing more Easter themed activities such as baking Easter nests from All Bran & chocolate, and making some Easter baskets to do our Easter egg hunt on Friday with! We will also be continuing with our world project, going further with the maps which the children started making last week, where they are choosing which/how many continents they want to portray on their individual maps. Some children have a connection with other continents from relations living there, or from going on holidays there, or from having originally come from there themselves, where some children just have a huge interest in certain continents – for example, Africa, due to all the exciting animals which live there!

Hop and Stop

The first little rabbit went hop, hop, hop,

I said to the first rabbit “stop, stop, stop!”

The second little rabbit went run, run, run,

I said to the second rabbit “fun, fun, fun!”

The third little rabbit went thump, thump, thump,

I said to the third rabbit “jump, jump, jump!”

The fourth little rabbit went sniff, sniff, sniff,

I said to the fourth rabbit “that is enough!”

The fifth little rabbit went creep, creep, creep,

I said to the fifth rabbit “it’s time to sleep!”
