Our theme is Oliver’s vegetables. We have been learning about the different vegetables and some of the children are able to identify what each vegetable is using their words or symbols. We explored the vegetables, put them in basin, washed them and then carefully with physical support from staff were able to cut some of the vegetables. We enjoyed smelling, feeling and on occasion tasting some of them.
The children were able to confidently hold the knife with support from the staff to cut up the vegetables from the story. We then used the cut up vegetables to make some artwork in the afternoon. We printed using them. We looked at the different patterns and textures it created on the page. It was great fun.
