Straight back in today - and it's like we've never been away! The children were all keen to get on and play so after a brief registration, and discussion about who had seen fireworks and what we had done over the half-term break, we got straight on and made some fantastic firework features!!!!!
This is how we did it...
1. Take a circle of black card
2. Splodge of paint, choosing your favourite colours, not too little, not too much
3. Put your card into the magic firework mixing machine (otherwise known as a salad spinner!)
4. Turn the handle as fast as you can....
5. Admire your work!!
And you can too - they are all displayed in Pre-school!
After snack, we had some fun in the sand pit, making patterns and digging with the vehicles.
This afternoon, we made arrangements with shapes, lined up people, animals, vehicles, looking for similarities and differences, making birthday cakes (with the stickle bricks!) before everyone helped have a jolly good tidy up!
