Through exploration of what they can do with the Magsnap construction, some of the boys figured out they can make a domino rally. This was the focus of lots of excitement and play, they have continued to make these domino rally's all week and it's just as fun and exciting as the first time.
Karl brought his pet tortoise to visit nursery, the children enjoyed watching him walk around and investigate nursery. We gave him a bath and made him a wooden enclosure to walk around in.
The children asked lots of questions and enjoyed learning all about tortoises.
Our children would like to take you on a tour of Appley Bridge!
We have had a lovely week making houses and a large map of Appley Bridge. The children brought in photos of their houses and we populated our HUGE wall map with houses and the streets they are on.
We made a model village and went for a walk around it.
Today the children acted out the story of The Three Little Pigs, but of course, we had more than three pigs... we had nine!
They made their own houses using different resources, finding ways to make a roof and enclose space.
The children then went through the story and we recorded it!
Today the children acted out the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff. First we needed to make a bridge that was strong enough to walk on!
We worked together and used our brains to think of a way to do it, and to solve the problems that popped up along the way.
Once the bridge was done, we walked through the story together and filmed it!
