We have explore blueberries by using them in different ways. We have squeezed, pulled, poked and rolled them onto paper to see what different marks that could make. We then decided to do some painting with them, we smelt them and spoke about the different smells. In our tuff tray we had a Charlie and the chocolate factory theme, about blueberries. We had all the characters and preformed a story by using our imagination. This then led use to use our hands to feel the ‘blueberries’ in the blueberry station, we rolled our hands around and then watched as they sprinkled through our hands. But we can’t forgot about the chocolate fountain which was made by the umpa lumpa’s. We had great fun playing in the chocolate and even had a little taste. As the sun has been out we have spent most of our time enjoying the sunshine. We have been mark making with chalk and having been drawing rainbows , shapes and even dinosaurs!
