It’s been a fun week and lovely to see the children back, ready to learn. The Birthday theme was fun – did you get to hear our new Insey Wincey Spider song or The Button Factory Song?
We have been developing a role play bakery, based n children’s interests and an outside wedding role play. We have been modelling how to use the new play dough and baking area, with a view to encouraging independent baking.
I’m still trying to develop the outdoor role-play area and would love some wedding magazines for the children to look at. My mind is racing with what direction this learning could take us. Apart from the usual make a wedding invitation, making a list of people to invite, all of which is lovely, I though about discussing with the children British customs, such as something old, new, borrowed and blue. SO, we may be asking the children to bring something in. I’m also collecting (washed) tin cans to put on the rear of the brides carriage! and our baking/junk modelling could develop into making the tallest tiered wedding cake ever – which of course the children would need to design, draw and label first!
Please send in any wedding photos, especially old ones of older family members, in black and white, so the children can appreciate how times have changed or from different cultures, or exotic locations.
We had a successful week baking, which will continue next week with small groups of children if your child didn’t get to cook this week. We are still accepting donations of cake decorations
Here are a few from this week:
Next Week: Book Week – Dress up Friday!
As always, I need to see reading records signed and unnamed uniform continues to be an issue. Please label everything!
