After watching a video about an arrest and what happens at the police station we had our very own police officers making arrests in the classroom.
We had our police officers bringing children to our make shift station where the mugshots were taken. Children got in to character very well.
During discovery time children took part in a variety of police themed activities.
On the creation station and playdough table children were making handcuffs. They had to make paper chains to link their two circles together. Most of the children worked independently.
At the mark making table children tracing patterns left by a police car and officer.
On the light table children were matching shapes to the ones on the police cars
On the paint easel this week children were encouraged to make a repeating pattern using different shapes to print with.
