Week beginning 22.01.24

Malleable Area

In the malleable area we explored numbers for number day. The children were asked to slide the pasta down the spaghetti depending on the number they chose. The children learned about counting forward in a sequence up to 10.

Art Area

This week in the art area we have been creating fairy gardens using transient art. The children have been using their imagination with the help of a you choose story based around fairytales 🧚

Home Corner

Today the children have been practising their numeracy and language skills. The children had fun saying the ‘One potato, two potato’ rhyme and counting the potatoes and matching to the corresponding number. The children were able to show the numbers in different ways. Well done children keep counting.

Snack Area

This week we have been trying out some new fruits.  We had mango, star fruit and pawpaw.  The children explored the different colours, shapes, smell and texture of the fruits using their senses.  We searched up where the fruits came from and how they are grown.  Some of the children’s responses were, “looks like a star fish, under the sea” “ it’s a star shape” “looks like a melon” “ tastes like a grape” “feels squishy”.   The children enjoyed some of the fruit mixed in with smoothies.

Story Corner

This week was numeracy week. In the story corner we focused on the author Mike Brownlow & Simon Rickerty books “ten little superheroes, ten little princess”. I set up an experience which encouraged children to count forward in a sequence 1-10 and identify numbers 1-10. The children were creating their own characters. Each of the children chose a number for their superhero, came up with a name for the character and a superpower.  Each of the children drew their own superheroes or princesses

STEM area

In the stem area we have been exploring our senses. This week we have been exploring our sense of taste and smell. The children tried a variety of different foods.
