The children have been threading using the ribbons. They pushed the ribbon through the holes, then pulled it out the other side with great hand and eye coordination. They attached petals they found too. They showed great perseverance and concentration. The children worked together and made a bright coloured threaded basket to hang in our room.

The children were able to express themselves doing large scale mark making outdoors. Art is a great outlet for children’s emotional well-being enabling them to express emotions and create and explore. It also helps children develop muscle dexterity and fine motor skills to enable them to hold a pen correctly which will then lead to writing.
Why not try this on an old roll of wallpaper and a mix of mark-making materials (pens, pencils, crayons).

Today we have been in the kitchen preparing vegetables for our soup at teatime! There was a selection of root vegetables including carrots, swede, parsnips, sweet potatoes and butternut squash and the children chose which one they wanted to chop. We spoke about safety when using the knives and how to hold them correctly. The children enjoyed feeling the different textures and exploring what they smelt like too! It was a tough job but everyone did really well with keeping on trying and we can't wait to try the soup later!

We have been introducing some woodwork. We learnt to use hammers and nails on a large log. We started by holding the nail in position using pliers and then tapped it carefully using the hammer in whichever hand was most comfortable. We also spoke about safety whilst doing the activity and making sure we were not too close whilst others were using the tools. The children were quite confident with the tools and really enjoyed being involved.

The children are very helpful and helped prepare a snack for the group this morning. First, we spoke about how we hold a knife and ensured we were being safe whilst cutting the apple and pear. They showed excellent control whilst using the knife and cut the apple and pear with ease. The oranges were a little bit tricky to peel but they persevered and did really well! They then helped to count out all the cups and bowls for their friends. Thank you for your help.

We have been enjoying our farmyard play dough table to support our Old McDonald had a farm song of the week.
The children used their senses and described the noises and smell the farm animals made in different trays. They then added this to the play dough to make different textures.

This afternoon the children spent some time in the mud kitchen in the garden. We used herbs, flowers and stones to create 'nature cupcakes.' The children used spoons and whisks to stir the items together and then they were pouring the mixture into the cupcake cases. They were exploring the garden to find other items to put into their 'cupcakes.' The children were engaged in this activity.

Our sand tray encouraging mathematical play.
The mathematically good things children do when they play with sand include lining things up, counting them, making patterns, comparing sizes and using moulds and containers, burying treasure and digging it up again.
At home you could encourage the following play activities to maximise maths learning:
1. Counting how many spoonfuls, shovelfuls, handfuls it takes to fill a container
2. Lining up and counting how many objects have been found in a sieve
3. Making handprints in the sand and then making one more
4. Arranging a row of full containers and nearly full containers
5. Pressing shapes in damp sand to make a pattern
6. Sieving out beads, small pebbles and large sequins and finding the total
7. Sorting the sand tools into things to dig with and containers to fill
8. Using a stick to draw a very, very long line in the sand
9. Observing how quickly/slowly the sand flows through a sieve
10. Filling and emptying containers and using size language

The children have been exploring the ice with flower petals frozen inside! We used some blue water and salt and saw what happened when it was mixed together. They used a spoon in each hand to pour the water on the ice, showing great hand and eye coordination. They used lots of descriptive language pouring the water and salt onto the ice. The children were fascinated saying ‘It’s melting now’

Try at home- collect some flower petals from the garden and freeze them in small containers of water. Add some spoons and pots of water for the children to melt the ice.

‘Oh let’s go fly a kite! Up to the highest height, oh let’s go fly a kite and send it soaring!’ Today the children made their own kites and excitedly watched them take flight in wind. The children found the best position with the most wind was on the hill. They also found running fast made the kites dance in different directions.

Try making a kite at home by cutting out a diamond shape and attached a long piece of string.
