Is It True?
This term we are thinking about all things mythical such as dragons and mermaids. The children have also shown an interest in dinosaurs and fairies. We are exploring these interests through lots of play and exciting stories. See below for all the term 5 fun!
Off they flew, zig zagging through the blue!
The children have been reading Zog this week and learning about the exciting world of dragons! This learning wouldn't be complete without some dragon biscuits. The children enjoyed working together to create their delicious biscuits.
We have been using our whole bodies to paint across a large area. The children have used a range of painting tools, to create texture and pattern. They have explored the feel and the look of the paint. The children painted on a large clear plastic canvas, they made observations about colour as well as looking through the plastic to paint what they could see. Children used their hands as well as tools to explore the paint. Children commented on colour mixing and how the colours were changing as the built on and painted over their creations.
Above all else we had lots of FUN!
Making Ice Cream!
We have been reading the story "There's A Dragon In My Book!" In the story children are encouraged to use their imagination to come up with some food the dragon might like. It turns out the dragon loves ice cream with sprinkles. So we made some ice cream for snack! Children made the mixture and then placed it in a bag inside some ice and began to churn it until it went hard. Children talked about how clod the ice was and used language like; cold, hard, liquid, runny, icy, crunchy.
The weather was windy and the wind blew with all it's might...so at Bapchild & Tonge Nursery we made kites!
The children selected which material they though would be the best, they chose different ways of supporting it and attaching their string. Once they were made we had great fun racing around and watching them fly.
We have worked with Early Excellence to design and provide a really exciting space for all of our children to learn. Here are some pictures of our new equipment.
