On Friday we introduced the children to the work of the artist, Giuseppe-Arcimboldo. We shared a picture where he had used a variety of fruit and veg to construct a face! The children had a go to create their own version, making a face-collage with cut out fruit images. The children then decided to use the plastic fruit and veg in our home corner to create more faces too!
Other popular activities this week have included dressing up. A donation of dress-up outfits has re-inspired the children in this area, with lots of new costumes to explore. We’ve also added school uniforms to the dress up area so that children can practice getting themselves dressed / undressed in readiness for school, which is a theme we will continue to focus on throughout this half term.
With Fathers’ Day this Sunday, we have also been focusing on our Dads – we have been delighted to have a number of Dads, Granddads and even great Granddads visit us and play this week. The children love it when people visit; it means an extra person who can play games, read stories, and play in the garden – so thank you to all those who came to play this week.
New words we have learned this week:
Pineapple & Parsnip – only a few children could identify these.
Ideas to continue this week’s fun at home:
Next time you go shopping, why not let your child look at the amazing variety of fruit and veg that’s available – there are some very weird and wonderful varieties available! Look at the shape, the size, the colours and the textures.
