Toddlers visit the Fire Pit

Today the toddlers enjoyed a visit to the big garden to help make vegetable pakora and watch it cooking on the fire

The children could feel the heat from the fire and warmed their hands while they waited on the pakora cooking. They also thought the ash looked liked snow  . We even got to try some and it tasted really yummy !!

 

Letter Learning

This week in the literacy area we have been talking about letters! We shared what we know about letters with each other and discussed different ways we could learn more.

Some children were interested in writing letters so we provided lots of learning opportunities for them to explore writing letters in different materials. As usual we have got a little messy at times but that’s all part of the fun!

Using wet sand and letter stencils to print…

“I am finding letters from my name.”

Using shaving foam…..

“I can write my name.”
“I can do all my letters”

Wet, slimy mud…..

 

The Magical Fairy World

The river is like fire.
I think the dragon is going in to the forest.
The King and Queen will live up here.

The children went for a walk into a magical fairy world today. They wanted to make a new world in the garden where a magical wizard and a scary dragon lived. The King and Queen of the land lived high above the garden, watching over their kingdom. The children thought the dragon should live in a big volcano with a lava river. We used some of our plants in the garden to make a deep, dark forest to keep the dragon away from the King and Queen. The castle was made from beautiful flowers that were pink and yellow and white. Everything was happy in the garden until one day the dragon decided to cross the lava river… Now the children had to decide, did the King and Queen live happily ever after?
