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.

Number Hunt

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?

Creative Pumpkins

We used our pumpkin as inspiration to paint some lovely orange masterpieces today. One little girl (2016.17.61) painted a circle for her pumpkin and told her key person “it’s circle”. We even began to paint on to our pumpkin! 

Our orange play dough was perfect for modelling pumpkins. After lots of trying we decided the best way to make a play dough pumpkin is to roll the play dough around and around. We made lots of pumpkins of all different sizes. 

The Three Bears Porridge 

While reading the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears we have become very interested in their porridge. One little boy told me “I didn’t have porridge before” and he asked me “why she eat it?”. Another boy told me “I don’t like it. My mum has it”.  We thought it would be a good idea if we tasted some porridge just like Goldilocks. 
This morning we made a shopping list and set off to Tesco to buy some porridge. When we got back to school we ate some porridge for our snack. Some of us liked it and some of us didn’t. One little girl said “it’s all gone like baby Bears bowl”.
