There's no such thing as the January blues in Greengables! The children were all very excited to be back. During the week they set up their very own pizza delivery service in the classroom, so we decided what better way to end the week by having our very own 'Pizza Party'!

We all know how good a hair cut can make you feel! The Greengables' Hairdressers was so busy, it was difficult to get an appointment, but they managed to squeeze everybody in! We perfected our washing and blow drying skills, practiced putting in rollers and created some very interesting hairstyles!

Mmm... Time for a wee trim??

The children had a great time when we filled the tough spot with shaving foam! This really is a textural wonderland as the children freely explore the foam with their hands and arms! We added some food colouring and large combs to allow the children to investigate pattern and mark making as part of their play!

What a great little helpers we have! During this term we will see the children's independence increase in many areas and they love the sense of responsibility when they are doing 'a wee job' in the classroom, it makes them feel very grown up!!

We worked on developing our cutting skills by using knives and scissors to cut the vegetables for our soup! We had to be very careful!

The children took part in an Artic Animal Rescue! In this activity the children explore the art of problem solving, work on their fine motor skills, increase their vocabulary, show determination AND work as a team! Who said being a Pre-Schooler was an easy job?!
