Week 1 and 2: We are running a whole school project on Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’ which is about a storm and ship wreck. The children have created stormy pictures, experimented with creating different shades of blue using the paint, mixed various ingredients to make a bubbling potion and more!
Week 3 and 4: The Elves and the Shoemaker – We have enjoyed using our shoe shop role play area, using the paint to make foot prints and and imagining we are real elves helping the shoemaker to make the shoes! We have also made some special clothes for the elves just like the shoemaker and his wife and have also been busy creating an Elves and the Shoemaker story book using the iPad.
Week 4 and 5: Cinderella – The story of Cinderella has been well received by all the children in Nursery and they are enjoying it very much! We have been very busy building a carriage for Cinderella, writing invitations to the prince’s ball and role-playing all the busy jobs Cinderella is made to do by her unkind sisters. We also got stuck into baking some scrumptious pumpkin flavoured biscuits and building a Cinderella clock tower.
