What a LOVELY week we have had this week, we have been making lots of fantastic pictures with loose parts both inside and outside. In the sandpit outside we used different sized pebbles to make different shapes we tried to create a circle, square and of course a heart shape. It was lots of fun. We spoke about how many pebbles we had used for our shape and how big or small it was.
We have been exploring colours too mixing reds pinks and purples together to see what happens, we made some fantastic coloured pictures outside.
Inside we have been practising our fine motor skills and strengthening those muscles in our hands, we have been trying to peg some plastic pegs onto some love heart shapes, it was quite tricky but we all had a go and counted up how many pegs we had put on.
The sausage dogs have been busy making the Queen of hearts some tarts which looked delicious, we all had a try at using the cutter to cut the shape and spooning the jam into the middle of it. They looked fabulous!
The dalmatians have been busy making playdough with Leah, they decided to make it purple and used lavender essence everyone was very good at mixing it together and we spoke about adding "More" or "Less" ingredients to the mixture.
