This week Nursery have been learning about India. We enjoyed reading our key text ‘The Runaway Chapatti’. We have had a wonderful time acting out the story, and creating Chapattis using paints, collage and playdough.
We sorted shapes that are ‘flat’ like the chapatti (2D shapes) and ‘fat’ (3D shapes). We found lots of 3D shaped objects in our classroom to talk about and did a great job of describing and naming some of them.
We were lucky enough to have a very special visit from Adriel’s mum and dad. They gave a talk about the part of India they are from, and told us lots of facts about what it is like there. They then taught us how to make chapattis and we all helped to roll and shape them. They were cooked in a special chapatti pan. Luckily for us these chapattis didn’t run away – as they were really delicious!
