Following on from the fun we had with pirates and the children’s enthusiasm for the topic we decided to move to the sea this week. The children have been using their imagination to make sea monsters out of junk modelling. They have also developed their fine motor skills to thread tentacles onto their octopus. The children have explored texture by painting with different textured paints and they have used their creative skills when playing with the rock pools and beach scenes that have been set up. There has been lots of counting and sorting of sea creatures. To finish the week we made pancakes as pancake days falls in half term!
