Today brought Goldilocks and the 3 bears to nursery. As a change from porridge, the families created Very, berry breakfast muffins and made story stones for the children to take home to retell the story. There was a sensory tray with dried porridge, spoons and containers for the children to explore and develop their fine motor skills and coordination and then the challenge....use the Duplo to make a new chair for baby bear! They rose to the challenge with some lovely creations, not only for baby bear but for mummy and daddy bear too!! Some even used the oatmeal playdough to create their chairs. As usual the session was brought to a close with the parachute game and song, Goldilocks and Baby Bear even had a bounce.
The Gingerbread Man
Our first week involved baking Gingerbread men, sensory ginger rice with the story characters in to retell the story, sandpaper and cinnamon gingerbread men collage and puffy paint gingerbread men too! We had a busy and very enjoyable afternoon finishing it off with songs and parachute games.
