This half term Monkey is learning all about Kings, Queens, Knights, Princesses, Castles and Dragons. He’s really been enjoying the theme and it’s been lovely to hear him tell me what he’s been doing. I don’t know about you, but I normally get very little out of him. What have you been doing today? Nothing! Well Sir Monkey has been having a great time.
The children have been making castles and apparently Monkey has been guarding it and letting people in and out. This may not be factually correct, but in his mind, he’s had a great time.
Our wooden castle has been back in play at home. We’ve had our knights and horses out, had little battles and saved the Princess (AKA A Bob the Builder figure!). We’ve been reading our books about Knights and Dragons. Dave the Dragon has been getting lots of extra play time with Sir Monkey.
He was so proud when he came home earlier this week with his latest creation. For a change, not a scribbled drawing or lots of cut up pieces of paper. No, this time Sir Monkey bought his shield home and apparently he’d written his name on it too. (We have a long way to go with Monkey and writing, but maybe he is starting to show an interest) I’m not a hundred percent sure what the egg box is, but he was very proud of that too!
Next Friday the children in Nursery and Reception are having a Royal Banquet. Monkey is borrowing his friend S’s Mike the Knight costume. I think Sir Monkey is going to have a ball!
What have your kids been learning about at school?
