One of our little boys had the fantastic idea of digging for treasure in our sand tray. We added telescopes and magnifying glasses to make us in to real pirates and help with our search.
After we had collected some treasure we laid it out to inspect it with the magnifying glass. We even did some counting.
Some of our children in Pre-Nursery are very interested in numbers at the moment. We are enjoying counting, looking at numerals and singing number songs. We decided to go on a number hunt to see what numbers we could find out in the environment.
There are lots of numbers and everywhere, our favourite were the street signs? I wonder what numbers you would find if you went on a number hunt?
We have made dinosaur footprints! We had lots of fun and we’re interested in the differences between dinosaurs, recognising that some had spikes and some had long necks.
We also loved exploring the texture of the paint and even made some hand prints ourselves!
We had a visitor to our Forest School today, a little mouse. We watched him run around and tried to think about what he might eat. Ali guessed “stick” and Jacob said “a flower”. We tried lots of different things although what he liked the most was cheese and a tiny piece of bread!
During out door play we spotted a worm and we stopped to have a look. It was very interesting watching the worm and we wondered where he might go, maybe to the shops? We noticed that ther worm was wiggling and that’s how he moved around. We watched him until he went in to the grid and down into the water.
