Let’s take a look at what we did this week!😁


As the children arrived to start the week it was filled with amazing Roald Dahl activities from creating their own stories, to making magical potions, and as if that wasn’t fun enough they then learnt about Rocky roads, by learning about where they came from and making their own yummy Rocky roads. Lastly they learned about red pandas by exploring there sanctuary and using play dough to make pandas.

Happy Roald Dahl day!📚

The children enjoyed making potions 🧪 inside and outside. They used the water tray and added different colours to make their potions come to life. They also used nature from outside to create more potions.

They used the mud kitchen to make bird 🦅 pies 🥧 using spoons and knifes to cut ✂️up the ingredients and mix it all together.

They worked together to colour in a giant peach 🍑 using orange paint 🎨, orange pens and orange match sticks.

The children then explored the Charlie and the chocolate factory tuff tray, which had lots of tasting 👅 and playing to do. The tray had chocolate 🍫, marshmallows, biscuits 🍪 and golden syrup.
They had to work together to build a house 🏠 out of biscuits for the Oompa Loompa’s and they had to sail the boat 🚤 down the chocolate 🍫 river.

Hope you have had a lovely day,

The children enjoyed helping to make a rocky road. They mixed all the ingredients 🍫🍪 together and then laid it out on to a tin.

The babies have been extending their interests in balls ⚽️. They have been using a Lego maze to manoeuvre the balls around to use and develop problem solving skills and hand eye 👁️ coordination. The children took turns and were very patient. For red panda 🐼 day they have been using playdough to make our own pandas 🐼. They have been using their hands and playdough tools ⚒️ to manipulate and move the playdough into different shapes. They then used this opportunity to talk about our own features such as eyes 👀 and mouth 👄.
