This week on our Wednesday Wander to the Whitecraig Village Hub. We played with some skipping ropes – being energetic, moving our bodies over and under. We played games with the parachute, had our snack and a story and we collected our weekly food pack which was Creamy Corn and Bean Tortillas with melted cheese which we prepared and had for snack.
When we arrived at the Village Hub this week, Jane gave us a lovely welcome and we had the opportunity to use the hall to play some football, a game called diggers and builders which was lots of fun, we ate our morning snack and we listened to a story.
This weeks Food Pack was Jambalaya. We sat around the table with our friends to try this, gave our opinion and were able to show some simple food preparation skills and use tools for measure.
It was also lovely to see our Village decorated with flags for the gala. The children wanted to show off their decorated homes.
Over the last 6 weeks some of the children from both Monday / Tuesday and Wednesday / Thursday cohorts have had the opportunity to experience Play on Pedals. Play on Pedals teaches the children about the different parts of a bike, wearing a helmet and the safety benefits of this. The children have taken part in lots of fun games and activities which has helped to develop their balance, steering, braking, gliding and control skills using a balance bike and eventually working towards riding a pedal bike, listening and following simple and more advanced instructions.
