Making gingerbread in Nursery

Continuing with our theme this week of The Gingerbread Man, Nursery made their own gingerbread men today.  We followed a recipe but found it tricky to measure the ingredients correctly. We took turns to measure and mix and then roll and cut the gingerbread shapes. Once cooked and cooled we wrapped them up to take home.  The children told us that they’d be eating them as soon as they could to make sure these ones don’t run away!

The Gingerbread Man

Nursery have been reading The Gingerbread Man and came in today to find that the gingerbread men that Mrs Biss had made had gone!  We sat down and thought about where they might be.  Some children thought they’d run away and some thought they might be hiding.  It needed investigation! The children took magnifying glasses to look closer and clipboards to note clues.  Some drew maps so they knew what parts of the classroom/playground had been explored.

Campfire in EYFS

The children in Nursery and Reception had a campfire today.  Firstly we needed to find a safe area clear of leaves to place our fire. We collected sticks for kindling and then safely lit the fire making sure we didn’t stand too close.  Once the fire was burning well, we toasted crumpets on it. The  children told us that we shouldn’t get too close or we might get burnt and of course, at the end we poured cold water onto it so it didn’t continue to burn.

Christmas has come early…

Thank you so much to everyone who came and joined in with our Christmas card making day. It was so lovely to see so many adults come to make cards with the children. The cards look fantastic and we can’t wait to see what they look like when they are professionally printed. The Year 6 children did a brilliant job preparing all the resources and the PTA were fantastic at keeping the day running (and the room clean!)
