The Chinese Restaurant.

We have been having a lovely time in our role play Chinese Restaurant!

We ate some delicious noodles with chop sticks, and served our food in bamboo steamers.

Our little chefs had a lovely time “cooking” the food.

Umm delicious!

Chinese New Year . . .

With the Chinese New Year falling during half term, we have been beginning to learn about China and the New Year festival celebrations.

We have been exploring noodles on the sensory table.

We added vegetables to pick up using chop sticks!

Scissors, chop sticks and tongs were used to cut and transport the vegetables and noodles, it was very tricky!

We used our fine motor skills to pull the peas open and count how many were inside!


Today we have been learning about Bees!

As part of our topic learning about ‘Pets’ we have learnt about the different pets that our children have at home.

Today we learnt about some very special pets . . . . Bees!

Nats keeps Bees at her home and the children have loved learning about how to keep them!

Here is Nats wearing the Bee Keepers Suit.

The children enjoyed looking at the frame were honey comb is formed.

They especially liked the smoke puffer, which is used to calm the bees!

We have had a fantastic morning learning about bees!

During our Forest School sessions we have been exploring mathematics!
