    Goldilocks and the three bears

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    Today we helped Goldilocks make some porridge for the three bears. We used oats, milk, raisons and bananas and created our very own porridge. We made one for each of the bears, a big one, a middle one and a small one. We used big spoons to mix it all up and to scoop up the ingredients . Some of us wanted to make "Porridge cakes" we found some cupcake cases and made the bears some cakes as well.

    We decided to make a yummy snack to take home. We used a cutter for the pastry and scooped lots of jam for their fillings. We then placed them in the oven and waited. They smelt really yummy!

    Cocoon

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    We have been learning all about caterpillars and butterflies, how they grow, make their cocoons and what makes them individual. We decided to make our own butterflies today. We used pictures to look closely at their patterns and features when making our own. In the afternoon we were able look at a Giants Atlas moth's cocoon. We looked closely to see what it was made of and what it felt like. We then had a look at all the caterpillars and butterflies inside the book. We were really interested in their patterns and their funny names.

    Shadows

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    Today we have been looking at shadows. We had a go at picking different objects/animals to see what their shadow looked like. We then traced around them using bright coloured pencils. Some of us had a look around Little Jesters to see what other shadows we could find.

    Patterns

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    Today in our tuff tray we used a range of objects and tools to create patterns in the sand. We thought of the different ways we could use the tools and what affect they had. We talked about what a pattern was and where we could see them around Little Jesters. Some of us noticed certain patterns that looked like every day objects at home. One made a pattern that looked like a "Potato Waffle"!

    Water Play

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    What a better way to play in the sunshine! We have been using Pom-Poms with our water play today. We used tweezers and kitchen utensils to scoop them up with jugs to fill and pour. Water play is one of our favourite activities and this was a super fun way to make this more interesting.

    Easter Hunt

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    Using our checklist we had to find all the hidden eggs around the field and woods, each egg had a picture on the back that we had to tick off. Once all were found we went looking for the Easter Bunny who was hiding in the woods. We used team work skills to make sure we found all the eggs!

    Obstacle Course

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    We made a obstacle course this afternoon, we had to balance on logs, run in and out of cones, crawl through the tunnel, jump into the hoops, climb the climbing frame, down the slide and under the table! We took in turns and cheered each other on when taking part. We challenged ourselves by completing again with a quicker time or extra challenge by using both feet to jump through the hoops.
