The children explored warm clothes (hat, scarf and gloves) during sensory stories and had lots of winter story massages. During EAD, the children explored a rainy day using water, spray bottles, rain coats and umbrellas.
In the home
Class 4 have been exploring lots of familiar items from within the home. We explored items from each room at a time including the kitchen and bathroom. We created a kitchen tac pac, explored pots and pans during play and used oat dough and noodles for cooking and handling. We explored the bathroom and smells using foot spas, creating bubbles, using soap, flannels and hair brushes.
Autumn 1: The children sniffed at the smell of the leaves. They had piles of leaves to crunch, to smell, to watch as they were wafted around, to squeeze and crunch, to stamp their feet on! They also watched the leaves move on the interactive floor screen of the magic carpet programme. The children also explored soil, gravel, pine cones and twigs. Followed by a warm wash and massage of hands and feet!
Autumn 2: All the children loved exploring the paint with their feet to make amazing bee pictures. We cut them out into bee shapes and added a photo of the child and pipe cleaners for antennae! The children had a wonderful foot wash and massage following the messy exploring!
