We had lots of fun learning about Halloween and carried out lots of spooky activities! We talked about different sized pumpkins and put them in size order, we explored green goo with creepy crawlies hidden in it, made paper plate pumpkins, scooped rice into pumpkin pots and dressed up as witches and wizards. We particularly enjoyed reading Meg and Mog stories.
All these activities linked with the Early Years curriculum covering Personal Social and Emotional development, Maths, Literacy, Expressive Arts and Design, Understanding the World, Physical development and Communication and Language. The children also demonstrated lots of different Characteristics of Effective Learning; showing us how they learn not just what they learn. For example, solving problems, thinking of ways to do things and explore the world around them using their senses. What a lot of lovely learning!
