    Hedgehogs

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    Using playdough and pasta the children made their own hedgehogs in our tuff tray. The children spoke about autumn animals and animals that hibernate in the winter. Some of the children brought math into this activity by counting how many spikes they used. We made other animals such as mice and used the pasta for their legs.

    Conkers

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    We have been busy collecting conkers and using them for our play. Outside we used the conkers to roll down the guttering, they also used them for racing and catching. Inside some of us had a go at conker rolling using different coloured paint. We had to move the tray to create different effects and patterns. The children enjoyed creating their own patterns and even learned about colour mixing.

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    The children went on their own bear hunt around the school feild. The children had to look for clues which were pictures from the story. They acted out each part and quoting memorable lines from the book. At the end the children found the bear who had left some biscuits for them to enjoy!

    Vegetable Soup

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    The children have expressed an interest in creating soups, perfumes and teas. This tuff tray had a range of vegetables and tools for them to create something yummy. The children mixed, grated, sliced and poured their ingredients to bring their ideas to life. We had yummy soup, pies and teas. The children spoke about their own experiences in the kitchen and worked together sharing their resources and tools.

    Sensory Bags

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    We made some sensory bags, we used shaving foam, oil, herbs, food colouring, water, pasta, and sequins. The children were able to use their resources independently to make their own sensory bags. Once finished we spoke about how they felt and used our senses to explore them.

    Tea Tuff Tray

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    The children have showed a real interest in tea making in our mud kitchen. We decided to create a tea making station in our tuff tray. We added different flavoured teas for them to use and smell. The children collected their resources from our mud kitchen that they needed to use. They enjoyed this activity and made lots of yummy teas for each other.

    Self portraits

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    The children have been busy making their own self portraits. First they started off by painting their faces, they then added their facial features by looking at a mirror to see what they have. We spoke about the colour of our eyes, and hair and what makes us unique. We will then finish them off by adding our hair!
