This week in Preschool, it has been really lovely to see some of our younger children making new friends and having great fun chatting and playing together.
We have certainly used the messy room this week - finding out what happens when you mix different materials like sand, rice and flour into paint. There were lots of comments like ‘this is all gloopy!’ The children have also explored what happens when you mix different colours into corn flour gloop. We also did some butterfly pictures, folding the paper over.
The gingerbread man who has run away has been sending us photos of himself! He has certainly had a great time running around Exeter. This has led to lots of discussions about our city and lots of ideas about what he has been up to. You never know, on your next trip into town, you might see him!
We have done lots of maths this week. We used our small sea world sorting shapes to count, order, compare and add. We have also played with 2D shapes, making lots of different patterns and pictures and talking about them. In the garden room, we have put up a big Rapunzel tower to see how tall the children are.
We have also talked about our body and all the bones in it. We then did some balancing and jumping, thinking about safe landings, of course!
Enjoy your weekend!
