P3 had so much fun this week on the 'Soft Play Party Bus' that came to school. Kobey thought it was awesome and Macey couldn't stop giggling at all the fun. Jake said "It is the best day ever!". We also enjoyed looking at things in the school jumble sale. We got lots of nice goodies to take home. We also enjoyed looking at our display board for St.Valentine's day. We printed paint onto paper using Lego and got an adult to help us cut it out into a heart. We then added glue, glitter and feathers. We love them!
We had fun this week writing letters, printing letters with paint, saying the sound letters make and thinking of words beginning with the sounds. We also enjoyed circle time when we learn the days of the week, describe the weather and register how we are feeling. We also had fun playing musical instruments.
