In the classroom this week the children have been reading the Gingerbread Man. They have been very busy painting gingerbread man and making gingerbread men out of play dough. They have also been practising their fine motor skills by making split pin gingerbread men. This was very tricky but once again the children showed great perseverance.
The children have also been very busy building bridges for the gingerbread man to use instead of crossing the river on the fox’s back. The children built bridges out of sticks, twigs, lolly pop sticks, straws and Lego inside the classroom and they built bridges out of crates, foam bricks and planks of wood outside. Some bridges took the children a long time to build and the children showed us that they can be a Solveosaurus.
The children’s favourite activity this week has been making their own gingerbread men. They all took part in the making of the gingerbread men. The children had the opportunity to pour, sieve, mix, stir, weigh, roll and cut out. The children were amazed at how much the gingerbread men rose in the oven but the most memorable part of the process was of course eating them!
