Today we had a special visit from one of our mums who brought in some cool butterfly snacks! We decided to use some paint to make them look extra beautiful before we take them home to munch them up! We talked about the real butterflies we see at the park and in the garden, and also about the things we love to do in summer! We love having special visitors at school, thank you for coming and thank you for our super cool treats! :)

One of our friends brought in some super cool, crafty butterfly snacks, and today we decided to decorate them before we take them home! We used crayons to colour the pegs- which was a little bit tricky! We had to focus and really use the muscles in our hands and fingers to hold the pegs still while applying enough pressure to get the crayons to work. It's great for us test and extend our fine motor skills like this, these muscles help us to write and draw with more precision :)
We can't wait to munch on our awesome butterfly snacks!

Today when we were playing outside a group if friends decided to arrange some chairs in a circle and play teachers! Each friend had a turn of being teacher to their friends and guided their 'class' through activities like colouring, singing and even name spelling! The little teachers could be heard thanking their students for sharing and taking turns- just like in real life! What a great game of role playing, I wonder who we'll be next time? :)
