What a lovely week. As the weather was a bit better we saw more children outdoors. We have been looking at the Season of Spring and this led to creating our own garden of flowers. The children looked at books on flowers/gardens then tried to create their favourite flowers. We had lots of sunflowers, snowdrops, tulips and even a Venus Fly Trap. The children used tissue paper, water colours and scissor skills to create their flowers. They also took a closer look at Spring flowers using the magnifying glasses outside. This is what the children knew about Spring.
A little outside investigation:How to send a message to Nursery, across the great divide… One child could see little sis in Nursery and decided to find a way to send her a message. The Postman wasn’t available, so she devised her own method. We then had fun seeing what else we could send, exploring the trajectory of various objects.
We have been coming to a close with our wedding play, so there was just one thing left to do, the wedding cake. The children selected 3 sized cake tins to create a tiered cake. They worked together, following the recipe instructions then later decorated the cake. Then we ate it!
