Following on with ‘people who help us’ the children have enjoyed playing in the role play areas throughout the nursery. They have pretended to be fire fighters, driving the fire engine to put out the fire. Then Building some walls and constructing other ideas in the garden. A group of children were carefully picking away at the soil to get the dinosaur egg (rock) from the ground. One child wanted to be palaeontologist when he grew up.
Some children have really enjoyed cutting and snipping the paper to make teeth to stick on to the mouth.
Also using the play dough to mould in to different items like parcels, bricks, doctors etc.
Working in the office taking messages and answering the phone. Also writing letters to their friends and family, putting stamps on before posting them in the letter box ready for the post-man to deliver.
The children have found the transformation of the caterpillars into butterflies fascinating. We set them free this week in the meadow and waved them goodbye.
