The children have been exploring size and size language through the story of 'Goldilocks and the 3 bears'. We have ordered bears and ourselves to understand size and learnt new words to describe different sizes. Next week we are going to use bricks to measure ourselves and our friends.
In construction we have created bear caves with a variety of construction materials and we had great fun using rollers to build and balance!
We have taken on the characters of the story in role play and '2 little characters' enjoyed dressing up and making BIG roars just like Daddy bear!!!!!
In cookery we made porridge, the children explored the texture of the oats before adding milk and then enjoyed mixing and observing the changes when it was cooked in the microwave.
Last week the children were really interested in honey so this week we explored honey through our senses and using tools. The children used some lovely descriptive words to describe the texture of the honey as it touched their hands. I was also 'wowed' by the amazing words the children used to describe the wild animals.We listened to the bear having two goggly eyes, one shiny wet nose and two big furry ears. The children described the elephant as having a "long, bumpy, rough nose!"
Next week we will continue with our learning around bears and the story of 'Goldilocks and the 3 bears'. We will be using shapes to create pictures and models and as suggested by the children turning the mud kitchen into the 3 bears cottage!
