The children helped Mrs Diggins to make playdough this week using lots of mathematical vocabulary as they did so. The children also used words to describe the feel of the playdough when it was finished- 'soft' 'warm' 'squishy' 'squeezy'. The playdough was then used in a variety of creative ways from modelling to counting!
Finger Paint Challenge
This week we were set the challenge of painting a picture using only our fingers. We had a wonderful time creating some fantastic masterpieces and explored colour mixing and developed our fine motor skills in the process.
What makes me special?
This week we designed and created a fish linked to our key text and talked about how each one was special and unique just like us.
Loose Part Art
The children have enjoyed exploring our loose parts station this week. They have been busy using the resources in their play and to create some unique art work.
The children enjoyed finding frogs in the long grass in Forest School. They sang 'Five Little Speckled Frogs' to practise their counting skills. They also discussed the lifecycle of a frog and the conditions they like to live in.
