The mud kitchen has done a roaring trade and the children have been cooking all day! One of the children is demonstrating how seriously we take sun safety and the wearing of hats. Inside we have been painting butterflies and gluing caterpillars.
As the weather is so hot, we created a mini splash park and splash, they did! The caterpillars are growing rapidly and the children are quite fascinated by them.
We have a school in the role play area this week as part of our transition work for those children leaving us. It is a hit! We have uniforms from most of the local schools for them to try, book bags to carry and pictures of their new settings to look through. In the garden, the plants were watered thoroughly and children were drawing round each other and looking at the shapes that they made.
Today we have been making cards for Sunday and have seen some beautiful drawing and writing.
The mud kitchen continues to be a popular destination and this morning, there was a group of children cooking soup with definite ideas about ingredients! The whiteboard pens are still popular as are the band boards and it has finally stopped raining!
