There has definitely been a lot of running this week as we explored the big school playground. Our main theme though has been the story of ‘The Gingerbread Man’ and we have used this to roll out dough, cut out shapes, cook and decorate gingerbread biscuits, and practice our cutting with scissors.

We have also set ramps and tubes up outside and created a huge car play area – following the children’s interests. They have had fun building their own ramps and tunnels, using numbers to see which cars travelled the furthest and estimating how long/fast each would travel.

Next week: following instructions and the 3 Little Pigs
