During last half term, we were thinking about the Grand Old Duke of York. The children really enjoyed marching around the outdoor area pretending to be soldiers. We counted how many men were at the top, the bottom and all together. We printed using trays of paint and wellington boots to make a new display.
We then thought about Valentine’s Day. The children made cards to send home to their family. We marble rolled with paint to create marble effected heart pictures.
So far this half term, we have been reading Cave Baby and The Gruffalo. The children loved creating a cave in the outdoor area from cardboard boxes and tree branches. We made cave paintings, mark made with charcoal, made Gruffalo’s from brown paper bags on the creative table and went hunting for the Gruffalo in the woodland area and found him along with lots of the other characters.
This week (WB 27.02.17), we are working towards World Book Day and are thinking about the book – Dogger. We will be making pancakes on Shrove Tuesday and reading the Runaway pancake. We will be dressing up on Thursday and Rev Kate is coming to read us a story on Thursday too.
