This month Babies have enjoyed dressing up and trying lots of different traditional foods for their Diwali tea. They had Indian music playing in the background to set the mood! Toddlers enjoyed making marks in flour; identifying numbers and letters and copying what the practitioners had drawn in the flour. And in Preschool we’ve enjoyed dressing up, face painting, pumpkin scooping, cutting and making spider webs.
We’ve also been learning about safety and the need to wear goggles when using a real hammer and nails. We hammered nails into logs and these can now be used for weaving in and out with threads. These logs also fit in with our deep dark Gruffalo wood in our role play area.
