Week 2


Day 1 - Choose a fairy tale of the week to create outdoors

We chose to focus on the 'Twist my Tale' story The Brilliant Beast. The children loved hearing all about the things the brilliant beast was good at and thought about what they were good at.
We linked all of our activities inside the classroom and outside the classroom to the story.

We had lots of lemon activities too to cheer up the lemon lickers; lemon rolling, weighing lemons, lemon playdough, lemon painting and much more!

The children in nursery learnt the nursery rhyme 'Incy Wincy Spider.'



Day 2 - Dancing in the rain or under a hose pipe

As we haven't had too much rain this week we decided to have a dance while we washed some cars. This was SO much fun and the cars were sparkling by the end of the day.

As dancing in the rain was SO much fun we decided to have some more fun with watering cans, umberellas and puddles! 


Day 3 - Make Marvellous Mud

We had loads of fun exploring the mud. We linked all of our activities to mud too!

Mud slide, chocolate mud, muddy foot prints, muddy tracks, mud painting.



Day 4 - Autumn Nature Walk

We went on a walk around our school grounds looking for signs of Autumn. We spotted red, yellow, brown and orange leaves; berrie and sycamore seeds. We even crunched through leaves on the ground.


Day 5- Role play your fairy story of the week

As our story focus has been The Brilliant Beast we have had lots of fun learning the song. We especially loved shouting "I am happy yes I am" to the lemon lickers at the end of the song.
