A school tour!

Today we did an exciting tour of our school!

First, we went to visit Carol, our fantastic school nurse; we have seen the nursing and some of the objects she uses to heal.

Then we have seen the reception and Inés, our secretary, who was there to welcome us. We played with some cars, we read some books and we did some drawings. When we were there, we discovered that Night and Day were there too! These are Carnestoltes’ friends 😀

Later, Mr Prata came to greet us and we went to his office where we spoke with him. He also read a book to us! We had a really good time with him and he has given the book to us to read it in our class again.

Finally, we visited the Nursery teachers’ staff room. They had a meeting there so we met all the teachers. We explained to the Butterflies what we do in that room and we showed the book to all the Nursery teachers.

Fluorescent paint!

Today we have gone to the black light room and we have seen how our clothes and all the white things shine and bright a lot!

After experimenting with ourselves (nails, teeth, t-shirts…), Miss Anna has put some paint on different coloured cardboards. These paints shined in an awesome way! We have stamped our hands, painted our fingers, made circles… it has been exciting!

Shaving foam!

This week has been snowing in our school and one way to represent this snow in our class is with shaving foam. With this experimentation, children have seen that this product looks like snow, it could seem the same if we only look at it but shaving foam is soft, creamy, sparkly, not cold… the opposite of snow!

We have added some paint drops and later some glitter; Butterflies have enjoyed a lot splashing and crushing this mixture!

After a while, we have painted a paper stuck in a wall and… awesome! You can see the artwork in our class!

Balls made with different textures experience

We would like to share with you some pictures related with psychomotor skills activities we did with the youngest kids. We built a swimming pool with different balls textures, colors and sizes. Using them was useful to learn the most basics motor behaviors and it was helpful for the dynamic coordination development. It was possible to do activities as throwing, picking up, catching and pitching. At the same time and thanks to the different textures we felt a full range of sensations.

New experiences in the Magic Room

Com ja sabeu les “Butterflies” van un o dos cops per setmana a la Magic Room a l’hora de psicomotricitat. Les experiències i activitats que hi fem estan relacionades amb el desenvolupament psicomotor i emocional dels infants. Treballem amb diferents materials per millorar la consciència del seu propi cos, rebre estímuls diferents segons el material, desenvolupar la coordinació oculomanual, l’equilibri, l’organització espacial,  compartir el material amb els companys, etc.

En aquest cas el paper de diari ens va possibilitar fer un treball de les sensacions propioceptives. La sala plena de paper ens va convidar a fer arrossegaments, a embolicar-nos, a trencar, a esquinçar, a doblegar, a amagar-nos, etc. Activitats que ajudaran als nostres infants a millorar la prensió, la força i l’ús de la pinça digital.

Us convidem a veure les imatges.

Having fun cooking!

Butterflies love to experiment and learning by doing is a philosophy that takes part in our daily activities.

Today we have been chefs and we have cooked delicious dishes for each other and for Miss Anna. We have also discovered that we don’t like raw pasta, we prefer it with tomatoe sauce!

Does “El monstre de colors” ring you a bell?

Does “El monstre de colors” ring you a bell?

Is a monster who changes his colour depending on the emotion he is feeling.

We believe that communicate and manage what we feel and what we think is very important and useful for our lives. So this week we have listened to the story twice and today we have identified our emotions and feelings hooking a clothespin with our face in the colour/emotion we thought was the most appropriated.

El monster de colors will stay in our class to help us every day to understand and classify our feelings and sensations; we really like him!

Carnaval, carnaval…!

Després d’una setmana molt divertida, amb els missatges que ens ha anat enviant el “Rei Carnestoltes”, i com mana la tradició després del dijous llarder…

Avui divendres, hem celebrat la festa del Carnaval amb els nostres companys d’infantil i primària: desfilades, balls, música, llum i color han fet del divendres 9 de febrer un dia molt divertit i molt especial, acabant-ho amb coca i xocolata!

Arriba el Carnestoltes i el Carnaval!

Ahir, divendres, els nostres petitons esperàvem amb impaciència l’arribada del Carnestoltes. Va arribar a la balconada de l’edifici dels nostres companys de Primària, acompanyats del la Dia i el Nit, dos gegantons molt divertits ,que a partir d’ara ens acompanyaran en molts moments al llarg del curs. Amb una mica de ball i música, escoltant molt bé el que ens deien el rei i la reina del carnaval, hem près nota dels missatges esbojarrats que tenim per aquesta setmana que tot just començarà el dilluns: el missatge ens diu que haurem de portar un complement d’un animal!

Us mantindrem informats de tot allò que vagi aconteixent; comença la setmana de la disbauixa!
