This week in Little Gems we have been talking about our homes.
The children used boxes and different coloured paper for windows and doors to create their own homes.
The children made sand birthday cakes Maia said “It my birthday. I 3” Patrick said “my cake.”
We visited the library for the first time this week and the children listened to a story all about going to school. We spoke about what was the same in the story that the children do in Little Gems. Anaya said “I play.”
We change our library books every Monday and the children enjoyed choosing a book from the shelves themselves.
The children have been role playing things they see at home from fixing things in the kitchen, going shopping and paying at the tills and to making food in the mud kitchen.
The children also enjoyed making toast. They watched as the bread was put in the toaster and waited patiently for it to be toasted. Once the bread was toasted the children then used a plastic knife to put butter and jam on their slice of toast if they wished.
