Jellyfish have been looking at Chinese New Year this week and have been busy with lots of different activities. We have made paper plate drums, paper dragons and Chinese lanterns. They have also tried writing Chinese symbols in the rice and explored noodles. Within the role play area we have a Chinese restaurant set up and the children have been making and delivering their own Chinese takeaways and writing down the orders.
Jellyfish and Seahorses have been using numicon to help find and record their number bonds to 10.
Jellyfish and seahorses really enjoyed being paleontologists this week. They have sorted through sand to find dinosaur bones and fossils then delicately used a toothbrush or paintbrush to reveal what they have found.
Jellyfish have enjoyed their forest school session today. They created their own Christmas wreaths using the natural resources available to them within the forest school area. Within their free play they had the opportunity to play on the tree swing, learning how to take turns with their friends and to be safe within their play. Some children used branches and twigs to build their own shelters developing their fine and gross motor control.
