Monsters, Beasts and Dragons

Monsters, Beasts and Dragons!

This week in the Foundation Stage our theme has been monsters, beasts and dragons which the children have been engrossed in. They really have adored some new stories and we have seen some fantastic learning going on as a result.

To link to our story ‘Bears don’t eat egg sandwiches’ the children have had a choice of egg or cheese sandwiches which has been well received. Our dough area has been taken over by monsters and the playdough ended up brightly coloured which the children have enjoyed manipulating and showing their fine motor skills.

As the weather has been particularly windy this week the children have been making kites using different shaped card, raffia and hole punches. This was a popular activity and we have seen some wonderful kites being made.

Our theme during mathematics has been ‘patterns’ and the children have been able to show their ability to continue, create and recreate a whole host of different patterns using a range of resources and colours.

Some children have chosen to write about beasts and some decided to tell us their favourite foods, as the ‘Ravenous Beast’ from one of our stories ate almost everything!

Finally, during our P.E sessions this week we have learned and experimented with numerous different ways of moving and negotiating space, the children had a marvellous time when doing so.

Our signs this week have been; hungry, sandwich.
