Zahra’s group explored a themed tuff tray as part of The National Storytelling Week.
The children acted out the story ‘the very hungry caterpillar’, feeding the caterpillar the different foods from the story.
They talked about what came next in the story & even pretended to eat the food themselves.
Once the story was finished, the children enjoyed filling & emptying containers using the messy play contents & then worked together to make the caterpillar again.
The children have certainly made the most of the weather today!
Our children wrapped up warm to go outside & explore the snow.
They enjoyed making footprints in the snow & following each other’s paths & some of our Busy Bees enjoyed mark making in the snow using paint brushes & spray bottles, they were fascinated at the snow changing colour.
They also had lots of fun making snowballs & seeing who could throw them the furthest.
Some of our younger children collected snow so they could explore an arctic-themed tuff tray. They also coloured the snow & enjoyed filling and emptying containers and making shapes in the snow with moulds.
A group of Worker Bees had lots of fun this morning visiting the central library. The children loved looking at the different stories. As part of their fascination board, they spoke to the librarian and the children asked her about her job roles. The children were very interested in listening to how she too helps people find books they wish to read.
Worker Bees have been focusing on letter recognition and writing. They enjoyed searching the sand to find letters from their names, they then placed the letters onto their whiteboards and began to copy the letters writing their names. Well done Worker Bees
