The courtyard wk beginning 7/6/21

This week we have explored diggers further, one child started to race the diggers, we decided to create a race track, the children explored mathematical language as we talked about first second and first place.

Children helped to create the race track and formed letters to create our finish line. We have had lots of talk around medals today so this will be our progression next week.

The Garden Wk beginning 7/6/21

Some hard work has been going on in Oakburn’s garden. We have been planting potatoes in our planters and pretty flowers in pots, whilst discussing what plants need to grow. We are excited to plant lots more in the garden!

The children have also been exploring woodwork tools and completing their own risk assessment. We used our fine motor skills to saw legs off a table and screw into apples. Soon we will be deconstructing different electrical items!

Acorn Room Wk beginning 7/6/2021

The children have been continuing to explore our different areas within our Acorn room and we have welcomed a few new friends to our Acorn room.Β  The children have been using arts to continue their learning of colours. We have used dinosaurs through out the week from reading a story called β€˜How to wash your little dinosaur’ which led to having dinosaurs in the water tray for children to wash and also painting using dinosaurs footprints.

During one of our group times the children explored musical instruments, peek-a-boo (using blankets and our tunnel).
