Handa's Suprise

As always there has been an explosion of learning through play and first-hand experience both inside the classroom and our ever evolving outdoor area! With the children guiding their learning we have developed our writing and maths skills through a variety of ways; the story Handa’s Surprise led to an interesting discussion about different types of fruit. This paved the way for bar graphs, shopping lists and studying the globe to find out where fruits come from, before tasting fruits from around the world. A greengrocers was set up by the children and through the week has developed into a general store- even selling beds! Problem solving activities in the "homes" role-play led to the problem of finding a "comfy bed the right size". The wendy house has been turned into a writing shed where many an exciting story has emerged. Our PSHCE focus has been making our own right choices and not following others. The adults role-played different scenarios with the Dexters to emphasise this important lesson. A very busy, diverse week but with happy engaged children!
