The children enjoyed playing on the new climbing equipment in the sunshine this week and getting very messy as we explored colours.

We started the week as we meant to go on with some splatt painting (it wasn’t only the paper that got covered!) and our feet painting ended in some very messy children, but a lot of laughter and happy faces.

There were many opportunities for the children to all explore colour and what happens when you mix different colours together including: foam and paint, primary colour charts, paint bingo.

We thought about the celebrations of Diwali and fireworks night with the children, learning about how these different events are celebrated and thinking about firework safety.

Next week: we will be turning our home corner into a shop, using the language of money, taking on a role in our play, taking a trip to the bakery (hopefully to eat some cakes!) and thinking about remembrance.
