Little “E” and I had some one to one time this morning while the girls had a nap.
I took this time to have a chat with him about the Jubilee. I had some lovely picture and word cards that I printed from a website (can’t remember which now though) and laminated and cut out to use with the children. I am not really one for flash card teaching but it’s quite hard to show him the royal family in person! We had a little chat about who the Queen is and what she does, explained that this Jubilee is celebrating 60 years of her being the Queen and what we will be doing in our village to celebrate it! He seemed to take in quite a lot.
Then we played with our new Olympics “Happyland” toys. I got a great discount in Mothercare on these, by buying their magazine at the counter. saved over £20!! Would not have known if it wasn’t for the very lovely lady at the counter telling me about it! These have been a big hit since they arrived and I am now thinking about selling my fisher price people and getting more of the Happyland toys.
We pretended to have races with the runners and the athletes in wheelchairs. Then we made the swimming guy dive in to the pool and the Queen and her Corgi went for a ride in the bus!
