We’ve enjoyed lots of time in the garden this week and, as the weather continues to improve, many of our favourite activities will move outside. This week, the children enjoyed making jigsaws in the garden, as well as having the Duplo outside in one of our large ‘tuff spots’. We have also played with our waffle blocks; large flat blocks that connect together – the children built a long pathway with them and enjoyed using them for balancing, and then made them into cubes and rolled them like giant dice.
Parents may have noticed that our book corner had moved! We have refreshed the room layout and also changed all of the books in our book corner. We have lots of new spring focused books which include lifecycles, spring animals, and growing. One of our favourite growing books is Jack and the Beanstalk – Jack acquires some magic beans and grows an enormous beanstalk which stretches all the way to the Giant’s kingdom! On Friday, the children helped paint a large beanstalk which will become part of a new wall display. We will continue to develop this theme next week; sharing the story with all of the children as well as acting out the story and seeing where else this may lead!

Why not share a favourite story and see if you can find props to help you act out the story
