The Foundation focus this week has been the story of Cinderella.
Our home corner has been turned into Cinderella’s kitchen, where the pots and pans have been cleaned, the windows have been scrubbed and the floor swept on a daily basis. It is now sparkling! The other half of the home area has been a ‘ball room’ where children, dressed in regal costumes, have danced and twirled to the music.
As well as using dressing up clothes, the children have designed and made royal costumes to wear. They drew, cut out, attached with tape and decorated many different creations such as knights’ cloaks, Cinderella ball gowns, tabards for kings and wedding dresses for princesses. Crowns, tiaras and wands were also made and used during play, with many wishes being granted.
As a treat this week, some children baked and iced wedding cakes for us all to enjoy. As always, they were very popular and thoroughly enjoyed at snack time.
Other activities this week have included designing castles from big bricks, taking Beebot on a journey from Cinderella’s home to the palace and enjoying obstacle courses and ball skills in the hall.
- Do you have any good quality but no longer used children’s puzzles and books at home? If so, please could you pass them to your class teacher. Thank you.
