The morning provision have been talking about different means of transport this week. During a PE session the children were very excited to play a parachute game which involved listening for their name to be called and running to the opposite side. They have also been developing their counting and number identification skills by selecting a toy boat with a number on and trying to count the correct amount of people to match the boat. In our outdoor provision, an ‘ocean’ was created in our water tray with lots of different sea creatures and boats, testing the boats to see how many people could fit before the boat sank!
The afternoon provision have shown a great interest in ‘the Gingerbread Man’ this week so after reading the story the children enjoyed drawing the characters and using puppets to re-tell the story to one another. They also had a special treat when we gave the children the opportunity to make gingerbread stars, they helped each other to measure the ingredients and mix the biscuit dough. Building towers has proven to be a popular activity this week, some of the children have been using unifix cubes to make long towers and have been looking at what’s taller, themselves or the tower.
