What do you get when you cross a shark with a snowman?☃️….
This week we have had a swimmingly good time learning all about sharks on shark day, wobbling like jelly on jelly day and treating our teddies to a teddy bear picnic!!
Wibble wobble jelly on the plate!
Today we have taken part in national eat your jelly day. We have had a messy tray filled with jelly and jelly cubes for the children to explore. They spoke about what the jelly felt like as they squished it between their fingers, “it’s sticky!” “It’s cold.” “It’s red.”
This was then followed by using an experiment to see what would happen to the jelly cubes once we added water. There was lots of guessing and imagination skills used.
We then used different resources to see what patterns and marks they could make in the jelly. We had scissors, knifes, play doh tools, and forks. This was great fun explore jelly in different ways.
We then had a very wibble wobble snack and had some yummy jelly!
As a lunchtime treat a very kind mummy sent us in some ice lolly’s for us to enjoy. We had lots of smiles on our faces and had very cooled down tummy’s. We then spent some time making a thank you card.
