Lots of edible messy play will be on the menu this month we shall be crunching cornflakes using a variety of different tools, we shall be encouraging the children to fill and empty lots of different size containers and giving the children lots of praise as they attempt to mark make.

The children have been singing Baby Shark so we shall be encasing lots of sea animals in ice for the children to explore. Brrrr its going to be cold.

We shall also be using a variety of different sized boxes for the doll’s beds helping the children with simple mathematical sizing.
In the garden the very hungry caterpillar has come to join us on our hunt for mini beasts, we shall be exploring the story as we hunt for the different insects. We shall be reading the Bad tempered lady bird finding out what made her so bad tempered? and continuing this by creating our very own lady bird, counting spots and making a game of how many spots can you count.
In Pat a Cake the children will be creating their very own caterpillar out of cucumbers and raisins, I cant wait to see what they create!.
The children will be making their very own listening ears and using them both inside and out to see what sounds they can hear, look out for the amusing photos on tapestry. In a very hushed and whispered voice the children will be listening to the Very Quiet Cricket, Oo I haven’t heard this story may be if I am quiet I can listen too.
Outside we will be making muddy cup cakes and decorating them with natural items we find in the garden.

Lots of the school teachers have been visiting the children meeting them and getting them ready for their new and exciting journey. We have taken photos of their new teacher and they have been kind enough to bring lots of photos of the children new school to help with their transition.
