And we are back….
It has been so good to see all the children’s smiling faces as they skipped back into the classroom. I was really surprised at how resilient they were especially when things were a little different in the classroom and at school. They have all grown up both physically and emotionally and you have all done a wonderful job with them over the last 3 months!!
Curious Creatures and Book Week
This week the children have been involved in creating their own curious creatures as this was our theme for book week. We first read the story Where the wild things are by Maurice Sendek and discussed the different characteristics that each of the monsters had. The children were then invited to draw their very own curious creatures. Here are some pictures of their drawings and their thoughts behind them.
The children were then invited to recreate their monsters in playdough. This activity lasted quite a long time as the children discussed at each table what they were making with their friends and the different types of monsters that they were making. It was so good to see the collaboration between the children and the mature conversations that were taking place. Here are their playdough models.
