The courtyard 13/09/21

Following a consultation with the children on Friday, our focus this week is varied and exciting! We are exploring fossils, the concepts of β€˜big and small’ and boxes. What super ideas!🀩

On Monday we put our imagination hats on and made some super creations using recyclable materials including cardboard boxes, plastic tubs and bottles. To scaffold and enhance learning we added collage bits and pieces, sellotape, glue, felt tips, tissue paper and fabric.🌟We used scissors to develop our fine motor skills.😍


Tuesday was all about fossils! We made our own dinosaur fossils using salt dough…a combination of flour, salt and water. We needed to bake them in the oven for 3 hours!πŸ¦–πŸ¦•πŸ¦–We had to be very gentle pushing the dinosaur figure into the dough mixture..We were so happy that they turned out well!πŸ‘πŸ™Œ


On Wednesday we explored the concepts of big and small, using boxes and bags…

Towards the end of the week we developed these concepts further when we discovered that the fairies had visited Oakburn and left their teeny tiny pencils! We had a look for things all around our nursery that were either smaller or bigger than the pencils!😍🀩
