Wow! October seems to have flown by, but it was a good’un. So, thank you, Month 10.
Before I tell you what we’ve got in store for our first November week, allow me to give you a little run-down of the last couple of October weeks at Friends Corner.
After much fun with The Senses, we got wild about Animals. We started off with E as our Letter of the Week, and painted an elephant (not a real one, yeah) which takes pride of place in our clubhouse.
We continued our Animals week with animal sounds, animal drawings, play dough animals, animal puppets, animal role-play, and a nice walk to the Pet Shop to see a few furry friends there. Some even dragged Animals week into the weekend and spent the day at the Zoo! (Some kids, that is, not some pet shop animals. Hmmm..)
We welcomed our new friends; the Active Babies team and, alongside our brilliant music class, yoga sessions, classic Bike-Whizzing™, slide-loving, and yard-racing fun, we went straight into another week. And this time it was Halloween Week..
We began with our Monday Letter of the Week, where we were feeling the fun with F.
We cut out some firewood from brown card, and our tiddlers went for a forage in the forest and collected them for the fire they were about to build.
Red, yellow and orange flames were placed on top of our firewood and we warmed up with the best fire in town.
We made some fantastic frogs and painted some fabulous falcons with our friends and we finished a fun Letter of the Week with F.
Lily’s music class and clubhouse fun took us into a new day, which ended with the closing of our doors for a day for the Ochi Day holiday.
But, we were back with Halloween crafts galore as we looked forward to our weekend Halloween party.
And, here’s the part where I thank everyone who dressed up, brought along a dish, and just basically popped in and had fun with us at yet another brilliant Friends Corner Halloween party. Thank you.
Food was consumed, themed cakes and candy provided the sugar rush, costumes were admired, piñatas were hit, and we hope you all had a really good time.
We’ll all be back together very soon as Christmas shows its pretty face, and we meet up at the Friends Corner Christmas Bazaar and Party. More on that soon.
As for this new month and what its first week has in store at the Clubhouse, we’ll be getting into the groove with our Letter of the Week – G, and we’ll be singing: “Remember, remember the fifth of November”, as Bonfire Night becomes our theme.
We’ll also be singing along with Lilly, Yoga-ing with our trinity of yogis; Alexia, Ariadne and Tiffany, pottering in our Pottery class, and we’ll be catching up with them Active Babies.
Join us and let’s all get November happy.
Until next time..
There’s a fire in this November sky.
