Book characters

We had some book characters come to preschool today and shared books as we’ve been doing all week.  In the garden, some of the children constructed a house with the various things they found lying around and the mud kitchen was busy again.

Mrs Honey’s Hat

We had a lovely Nanny come in today and bring the Mrs Honey’s Hat story sack and a pop up book to read to the children which they thoroughly enjoyed.  The home corner is currently the cafe from the Tiger Who Came to Tea and there have been some fabulous tea parties. We are big fans of reading stories at preschool and all the benefits that stories bring…… for example, some of the children are now leading their own Leaf group and reading stories to their peers 🙂

Fairytales

We have fairy tales on the carpet with the fairy tale puppets and dolls houses.  Residents today have included the Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Little Red Riding Hood.

Have you seen Elephant?

We are celebrating World Book Day all week and the children are making their own books on the craft table and mark making table. We are also sharing lots of stories around the setting and most of the activities have a book connection.  The construction on the Maths table is based around Have you seen Elephant? by David Barrow.

Pop up ice kitchen

Although it was short lived, playing in the snow is always fun and the slush made a great dinosaur home.  We also had a very exclusive pop up ice kitchen making snacks. Inside, the children took inspiration from Meg and Mog and made their own potion with newts and frogs and spiders and beetles…..
