Kebabs and Mucky Pumpkins

We had been using the chimebars in the classroom to experiment with rhythm. The beaters were repurposed and appeared in the Little Red Hen’s Kitchen in the form of Kebabs. This was a great new use for the sticks. The Pioneers were all interested in making kebabs and discussed that some may be having these at home in the holidays with marshmallow and chocolate.

We took the idea one step further and made some leaf kebabs in the forest. These allowed us to collect and compare leaves at various spots in the forest.The Pioneers spotted the difference in the shapes and the talked about the seeds that we found too.

When we brought the pumpkin in,it was clear that it needed a wash,so we washed it and scrubbed it and massaged it with bubbles and green froth.

So good.

People who help us

In Explorers Class we are talking about people who help us. Our week began talking about how Mummy and daddy help us at home. We then spoke about different jobs and people who help us. We have added some dressing up of different occupations to our role play area, such as firemen, policemen, nurses, doctors and we have already had lots of fire fighters this week! The children have looked at pictures of a person and a vehicle which are of a different occupation and have matched them together. The children have also picked an occupation they would like to be and made a hat to use during more imaginary play. For the final week of term we will change the role play equipment to different job types, so wait to see who we will be next week!
