What we have been up to..............
Helicopter stories help to promote creativity and story telling. With just a masking tape, pen and piece of paper the children take on characters and objects and act out a basic story on the 'stage'. After the children have taken part in the practitioners story they are asked if they would like to create their own stories which are written down.
This story began with 3 spiders who were afraid of the lightning. The wind came out and blew the lightning away so the spiders were happy again!
The children wrote messages on hearts. Who they love and why?
I LOVE MY BEST FRIEND BECAUSE SHE COMES TO MY HOUSE TO PLAY
I LOVE MY DADDY BECAUSE HE CUTS THE GRASS
I LOVE MY SISTER BECAUSE SHE HUGS ME
Chinese New Year
The Year of the Rat
The children enjoyed tasting noodles, prawn crackers and sweet and sour sauce! They made a lovely display including masks, lanterns and copying Chinese writing.
