This week we planned activities based around the Sunbeam's favourite number rhyme , Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed. We set up a role play area and the children looked after the monkeys , phoned the doctor and they used the medical set to make them better. We did lots of counting , the children particularly enjoyed counting down as the monkeys jumped off the parachute. We also explored the feelings of the jumping monkeys and their mummy. The children decided that they were happy when they were jumping but they were sad when they hurt themselves. In dance we moved like monkeys to the Funky Monkey song and we did lots of jumping , safely , on the trampoline ! To end the week , in cookery , we made Banana Bread and the children made monkey masks .
