Mr Wolf’s Pancakes
The children have began the story by having their very own pancake races. The children showed great perseverance and teamwork whilst taking part. They have written some great shopping lists so I know what to buy for my pancakes. They have also been busy counting money for ingredients and weighing the ingredients in maths. The role play are turned into a fabulous pancake house for the children to role play taking orders and cooking the pancakes.
Alongside this they have been experimenting making their own houses from cocktail sticks and marshmallows or gummy sweets and making sure they do not fall down.
We also enjoyed having the parents come and visit for ‘Come and share’ where they got to experience what we get up to during the day. This was a fantastic opportunity for the children to share their learning with the grown ups that came to visit us.
Chinese New Year
To celebrate Chinese New Year, the children have been learning about all of the different animals and why each year was named after them. They have also been trying out writing in Chinese.
We opened a Chinese restaurant in our wet area, where the children had to reserve a table before they could try the delicious food. They even used chopsticks to eat the food.
We had traditional costumes and decorations in our role play area.
For P.E. We all had a go at Tai Chi, which was great fun and all the children were amazing. We definitely felt more relaxed afterwards.
