Making Bread

As the children have been learning all about the ‘Little Red Hen’ they made bread just like she did in the story. The children looked at wheat sheafs and then used the ingredients to make bread rolls.

The children cam up with ways to describe the dough such as: sticky, soft, gooey, smooth and they said you need to have muscles to be able to mix it!

We then had to wait for the bread to grow bigger before we could put it in the oven. We rolled it into bread rolls and then cooked it in the oven.

World Nursey Rhyme Week – Day 1 

As part of World Nursery Rhyme Week the children in Reception will be learning a nursery rhyme each day and taking part in activities linking to that rhyme. This helps develop the children’s communication and language, literacy skills,  maths and helps them to develop socially and emotionally.
The rhyme we focused on today was Bobby Shafto. The children enjoyed learning the song and coming up with actions to help us remember it .

The children then made telescopes to help them look out onto the sea and some children used boxes to make a boat!

The Sky

Today the children noticed that there was something different about the sky. Whilst we were outside the sun turned a very bright orange/red colour and the clouds were very dark. The children discussed what could have happened and why is was like that.

Some of the children decided that it was on fire and it was burning the sky! We then talked about the dangers of the sun and was to stay safe from it even in the colder months.
