24th – 28th April

This week at The Children’s House we will be learning all about the life cycle of the frog! During the year, and usually in Spring time, we cover the life cycle of a particular animal or insect. It’s going to be loads of fun – the children will be doing art with green sponge painting, making their own life cycle on a paper plate, playing leap frog, & lots more amphibian related fun activities!!

I Had a Little Frog

I had a little frog, his name was Tiny Tim,
I put him in the bathtub to see if he could swim
He drank up all the water, he gobbled up the soap
And when he tried to talk
He had a bubble in his throat!

17th – 21st April

Welcome back everyone, we hope you had a wonderful break over the last 2 weeks!! This week in The Children’s House we will be learning about the sense of sight, as well as celebrating the new month of April. We will be talking about various interesting & fun facts at circle time such asĀ  – eyebrows & eyelashes protect the eye from dust, dirt & sweat; tears help wash away small particles; the eyes of some animals like deer, rabbits & mice are on the side of their heads so they can see in all directions to watch out for predators; it’s impossible to sneeze with your eyes open; dolphins can sleep with one eye open; chameleons can move their eyes in different directions at the same time! The children will be examining items with magnifying glasses, blindfolded & guessing what objects are, and playing games like I Spy.

I Look in the Mirror (poem)

I look in the mirror & what do I see?
A pair of eyes looking back at me
A nose, two eyes and eyebrows too
Two lips & teeth to say “I love you”
I look in the mirror & what do I see?
I look in the mirror & I see ME!
