    Smoothies

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    We made smoothies using bananas, strawberries and milk. We used knives and chopping boards to slice up our fruit before putting it in the blender. The children discussed the importance of washing their hands before touching food and how to use knives safely. Once blended we then tried each smoothie. We used a tally chart to mark our favourite one and counted the results up at the end. The strawberry one was our favourite.

    Sinking and floating

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    We made our own boats using tin foil. We shaped our foil and created our own flags. We spoke about floating and sinking and why objects sink. The children decided to test their own ideas and used our water tuff tray to see if they had made a boat that sank or floated.

    Ice-cream

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    Our topic this week has been 'The seaside' During circle time we spoke about our own experiences and what we've enjoyed doing the most at the seaside. We made our own ice-cream station just like at the beach! We used foam and paint to make the flavours that the children had decided they wanted. We had chocolate, strawberry, mint, vanilla and bubblegum The children then used spoons and cones to make their own ice-cream and topped it off with sprinkles. They looked good enough to eat!

    Writing in the sand

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    Today we have been practicsing our mark making and writing skills. We used chopsticks and sand to make it more interesting and to add texture to their activity. We made lots of marks and even had a go at writing numbers and shapes in the sand. We talked about our marks and together we thought of different tools we could use to write and draw with.

    When i grow up.....

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    Today we thought about what we wanted to be when we grow up. Our Little Jesters shared their thoughts during a circle time and told their friends what they wanted to be. We then created mini stations for different jobs, we had hairdressers, doctors, builders, chef's, princesses and many more. The children dressed up for the day and had a go at acting out new experiences in the role play stations.

    Cupcake counting

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    We used cupcakes with numbers today. First the children had a go at recognising the number at the bottom. They then counted out the correct amount of cheerios to place in their cake case. We counted and recongnised numbers 1-10 and did this activity independently and in teams working together.
