This week at Squirrels the children have been helping to build road layouts
for the bikes, scooters and cars to use, in the outdoor area. We
included a zebra crossing to practise crossing the road safely. We added a
petrol pump so that the children could take turns to be the petrol pump
attendant, putting in petrol and taking the money.
We also set up a shop where the children could choose to be a
shopkeeper or a customer. They used lots of natural materials in
the shop such as baskets of conkers, acorns and pine cones. We also added
some real potatoes and carrots.
We had a few vegetables left over from our harvest collection which
the children chopped up to make vegetable soup. The children sat outside
in our log circle and tried their warming soup.
We painted a big rainbow in response to children talking about the
rain and the sun and you can see it up on the wall at Squirrels.
We have been reading the story of Goldilocks and the 3 bears and lots of
children have helped us to act it out using some props.
See you next week
