Week ending 18th July 2014

This week we had lots of stories about sea creatures and talked about the animals in the stories.

The children explored colours and what happens when they mix colours when they painted with rollers.  They also played with number sacks and used number names as they played.

On Wednesday Pip helped the children make a Pasta sauce, they chopped some vegetables and also used the food processor to chop the vegetables even smaller.   They liked watching the vegetables going round in the food processor very quickly.

In our music session we sang and danced to some of our favourite songs.

On Thursday some children played ‘snakes and ladders’ counting the moves on the board.  We also played with some magnets and explored which surfaces the magnets would stick to.

The children have played with the ‘bugs’ and ‘flowers’ in the sand, looking for bugs with the magnifying glasses and also planting flowers in the flower pots.  The water activity has been very popular with the children filtering coloured water and using jugs to pour.
