Father’s day is in a couple of weeks, so Monday and Tuesday we were preparing some surprises, practicing fine motor skills and being all creative 😊 On Wednesday we spent a long time outside at Palolampi playing different games and exploring nature, counting squirrels and birds we met on the way. The weather was sunny, so the children enjoyed it a lot. On the way back maxis chose a new spot for a field trip next week, we are looking forward to it! Thursday and Friday maxis had a combined big morning circle with viskaris and mestaris all together. We reviewed some old tunes and the children had lots of fun singing and acting “Five cheeky monkeys”! Everybody wanted to be Mr Crocodile! 😊 Then we arranged a few stations the children could choose from; Halloween mummy craft, coloring and puzzle station. On Friday we dived into Halloween mood, listened to a spooky story about pumpkins and then some children got inspired and painted Halloween themed pictures; witches, pumpkins, ghosts and monsters, we used them to decorate our classrooms! Looking forward to the party next week!


This autumn holiday week has flown by! There has been changes to the routine as groups were combined for some Halloween activities. Our underwater theme continues alongside Halloween and the children have made mummies this week. We also did some sea-themed yoga and have started a continuing story based on the current theme to listen to during resting time. Play friends were in use to encourage social interaction with new friends. Halloween excitement is in the air and we look forward to the party next week. The children may wear a costume to the party if they wish.
