Our Outdoor Area
We are working hard to develop our outdoor area and the children have provided us with some fantastic ideas. We have added pipes and tubes to the water area, which has already encouraged the children to challenge themselves. We have created a natural maths area with a range of numbers, collecting and sorting opportunities. We have also created a small world area so the children can develop their imagination by acting out stories with characters. Have a look at the pictures to see how much the children are enjoying the new additions.
We had lots of fun learning all about germs. We discovered that germs are there even though they are really hard to see. So we pretended that paint was germs to see how far they spread. You will not believe where they ended up!
Dental Playbox visit
We had a fantastic visit from Dental Playbox. We learnt lots about our teeth and how to look after them. We had the opportunity to take part in lots of activities such as dressing up as dentists, sorting good and bad food for our teeth and cleaning fluffy animals' teeth. We even got to take home a new tooth brush and tooth paste! Here are some pictures of our exciting visit.
All About Me!
Over the last few weeks we have been thinking about ourselves, our families and our bodies. We have had fantastic fun:
-Making knock, knock books of our families
-Labelling our families
-Exploring the Funnybones stories and creating our own version
-Discussing ourselves, our feelings and much more!
We have also been very excited to explore our senses through Mr Potato Head and have enjoyed some fun sensory experiences such as spice painting, feely trays, smelly play dough, observational drawing etc. We even had to use our senses to rescue Mr Potato Head from the Evil Emperor Zurg!
