The children have all been taking it in turns to do some indoor camping this week. They searched for bugs using magnifying glasses and identified them in our bug book. They read stories in the tent by torchlight and pretended to toast marshmallows.

We explored the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ with our morning children, counting magic beans, thinking about measuring, growing and drawing our own castles. They practised using the language of measure (cm/metre) in their play, used bricks to see how tall things were and measured themselves on our height chart. Take a look at your tapestry account to see what your child has been busy doing this week.

Next week: exploring, matching and mixing colours.
