Malleable area-Week commencing 12th July 2021😁

We have been exploring texture this week. The children chose to add glitter and rice to their play dough and we discussed how different this made the dough feel!πŸ€©β€˜It’s bumpy, it’s rough, it feels funny!β€™πŸ˜

To link with our Sports Week we made medals using play dough. We talked about the circle shape and what we could use to make a circle in the dough. There was some fantastic shape knowledge on show!πŸ‘πŸ‘

On Wednesday we decided to make gloop using corn flour and water.πŸ’§πŸ’§We had a really good think about how we make it look and feel different. There were some brilliant suggestions such as adding blue paint, rice and lolly sticks! Sticky, gloopy FUN!πŸ˜ƒπŸ™Œ

On Thursday we became Chefs in our very own Oakburn Bakery! We made shortbread medals.πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹Lots of learning opportunities here, from measuring to counting, turn taking and sharing and of course developing those all important fine motor skills as we rolled out the mixture. Our shortbread tasted YUMMY!πŸ₯°

What a fun filled week jam packed with learning experiences!⭐️
