My Emotions and Valentine’s Day

My Emotions & Valentine’s Day


Red, Pink, White







Ll Love

This is such a sweet theme. All the children give hugs all week and Wednesday was just so special – seeing them all in their pink, red and white outfits. 

The Pups have been adorable this week, learning about the BIG emotions – HAPPY, SAD, EXCITED, ANGRY, SCARED. We spoke about each of these feelings and about situations when we would be likely to feel them. We sang “If you’re happy and you know it!” more times than we can say, making the faces as we went along. When we are sad in the song, we say “Oh no!” When we are angry, we stamp feet. When we are excited, we shout “HOORAYYYY!” We had a lot of fun making faces! These children are young but so perceptive – it is amazing to see how much they are learning. 

For art this week we made you a beautiful Valentine’s Day card – we hope you love it! It was made with loads of love from your Pup to you. Then we made you some delicious cookies dipped in icing with sprinkles. This was a lot of fun and it kept the Pups and myself very busy. The kids made a paper plate heart with a bag full of washing soap on the inside and we also added some decorations for inside the bag, to make it all squishy and fun for the Pups to use! 

Each week just gets more exciting, working with the Pups and seeing them try new things!

Have a stunning weekend, keep safe and see you next week! 



Have a wonderful weekend!

A highlight of the week was the reptile show on Wednesday. The Pups couldn’t believe what they saw! Some of them were very brave and touched the reptiles being shown, while others kept their distance but were still very curious. Seeing their big eyes light up as the snakes and spiders came close was definitely something special.
