We had another lovely big group again this morning. We sang "The Wheels On The Bus" and made our own buses, complete with moving wheels, opening door, ringing bell and lots of passengers. As usual, there was the opportunity for painting, sticking and colouring too.

Today it was cold and frosty so we made snowmen and sang "I'm A Little Snowman, Look At Me!" We were joined today by some of our past members as they had a Teacher Training Day - it was lovely to see them again!
Monday 18th December 2023
'Five Christmas Trees In A Garden Shop' was today's inspiration, so our art was all connected with Christmas trees. We even decorated some tree biscuits as our Christmas treat.

Today we made penguin christmas cards and sang See the Little Penguins Sleeping Til It's Nearly Noon'.
Monday 20th November 2023
Today we helped Humpty Dumpty when he fell off the wall. Although 'All the King's horses, and all the King's men, couldn't put Humpty together again' .....we managed it because we had lots of plasters!
Monday 6th November 2023
Our art today was based on 'I'm A Little Teapot'. Once again we began by joining in singing our action song, then we used different sticking and gluing techniques to make our own tipping teapots..... they even had a little surprise inside to take home!
The session ended with gathering again for a drink and a couple of songs.
It was lovely to see so many little ones taking part today.
Next Mini Mondays will be 20th November.
Monday 23rd October 2023
Today we started by singing 'Autumn Leaves Are Falling Down' and looking at the beautiful colours of autumn leaves. Then we used our leaves for making spiky hedgehogs and leaf printing, and we also did some hedgehog colouring and stencilling. We ended our lovely session by singing a song about our little hedgehogs.
Monday 9th October 2023
As it is now the time for more spiders inside our houses, and we are getting close to Halloween, we based our art on Incey Wincey Spider and Little Miss Muffet. The children enjoyed singing along with the songs and bouncing their boingy spiders.
Monday 25th September 2023
Today we based our art on Baa Baa Black Sheep and Mary Had A Little Lamb.
