Our week started off quite icy! We really enjoyed breaking up the ice in our outdoor area with cardboard tubes and mark making on the grass and cable reels.
We have also been learning about the number three and have had lots of stories and rhymes about this number to explore. We sorted objects for the three bears into the correct sizes, we made porridge and added different flavours and we talked about Goldilocks at carpet time. The children were asked if Goldilocks should have gone into a stranger's house and should she be forgiven by the three bears for what she did. The children decided that Goldilocks did not mean to do something wrong and she was very sorry what she did, so she should be forgiven.
The theme of forgiveness rolled out across our week through the stories of The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Joseph and His Amazing Coloured Coat and The Three Little Pigs.
We made bridges for the troll to live under in our outdoor area and enjoyed using our junk modelling to create houses that were strong for the three pigs to live in. Our amazing coats for Joseph were fantastic, well done everyone they look brilliant around our reflection area.
Following interests from children we explored the night sky and made night sky pictures with millions of stars, using a spray technique with washing up brushes. It was very tricky to keep the paint from spraying everywhere but great fun!
On E Safety Day we talked about staying safe whilst using the internet. We heard the story of Smartie The Penguin and Chicken Clicking and discussed what they should do to stay safe. The following web link will take you to the childnet resources:
The children also drew pictures of what they like to play on when using their I Pad or tablet.
