This week in the discovery area we have been leaning about space and their planets by reading “our space” story. The boys and girls have been taking in interest in rhyming. So we brought out a game where you have to match rhyming words and put it into a rocket. The children have really enjoyed this challenge 😊
In the STEM area we have been focusing on learning about money and the different values of it. We have been using padlocks and keys to help develop fine motor skills and problem solving.
We have been using a numeracy car park to help develop number recognition and having races to see how different sizes can go at different speeds 🚗
This week in the Studio, we have been using our Autumn treasures to create interesting things. We have been developing our creative skills and building relationships as we worked as a team to roll the conkers around the tuff tray to create a painting. We had to use good communication skills to work together and tilt the tray to roll the conkers in the paint. 🎨🍂
This week we have been further exploring transient art, we have been using the loose parts resources to create wonderful things. One of the children this week made a house of sticks, conkers and acorns. We have developed our curiosity, inquiry and creativity skills whilst exploring transient art 🍂🍁🪵🪶
We have been using some of the leaves from our Autumn treasure bags to make “leaf monsters”. We have used our creative skills to use some of the craft resources to make these, everyone’s was different and they are all very imaginative. 🍂🍁
