Dinosaur World

The children have enjoyed reading our Gigantosaurus book. We discussed where dinosaurs might live and what they might eat? The children excitedly suggested we build a world for our dinosaurs in our garden! We set off round the garden to look for some rocks, sticks and leaves for our world. The children suggested we have some sand for the dinosaurs to play in, just like our sandpit in the garden. Of course, our dinosaurs needed a bath to have a wash in because they would be dirty from playing in the sand! We had lots of fun building our dinosaur world and playing with our dinosaurs. Doesn’t it look amazing!

 

“He’s playing in the sand.”

“He’s all dirty and needs a bath.”

“I’m washing my dinosaur.”

“I’ve built a house for Stegosaurus.”

“My dinosaur likes to eat leaves.”

Our amazing Dinosaur World!

Technology

The children have been using their problem solving skills to design and work together to create some architecture buildings. We have also been using our imagination with the blocks to create characters from our favourite movies. Some children have been exploring schematic play , through using the blocks to enclose items they have gathered in the Family Centre.

Architects, builders beware – check out what the Cartmill children have been up to……………..they even tidy up after themselves 😁😁😁

Cartmill children have created a fantastic bridge!

Well done for using the tools  safely

Boys working together, good job

A new stormtrooper house

The boys understand the routine of the nursery and tidied up when they had finished.

 

Our very own Farm at Cart Mill!!!

Today at Cart Mill the children were super excited to create their own farm outdoors. First they collected the resources for the farm and then  they talked about all the animals they saw when they visited the farm during the holidays. One child was quite excited about the cow as he told his friends that he knows how to milk the cow. We also talked about what different animals like to eat and where they like to live. This conversation led to children talking about their favourite food and where they live. Some children shared their experience of feeding animals on the farm.

“That’s the pathway for cow”
