Blossom Room Blog....


Apple Blossoms
So far we have explored the colours green, blue and yellow. This week we have been particularly focusing on yellow. We have been using a variety of differently sized spoons to fill containers with yellow rice. Some of the children have been pretending they are cooking using the rice. We have been making lovely collage pictures using different shades of yellow glue, paint and pasta. The children have been hard at work in the home area washing the dolls clothes in soapy water and then hanging to dry. They have then been ironing them using the toy iron and ironing board before redressing the babies. Lots of the children have been practising writing their name using pencils and name cards. All of the children have been making lots of marks on paper using a variety of mark making tools such as pencils, felt tip pens and crayons. Eco-schools have also been hard at work, picking up litter in our outdoor play area to make it cleaner and nicer for us to enjoy.
Cherry Blossoms
We have also been looking at the colour yellow in Cherry Blossom room. We have been doing lots of filling and emptying using jugs and containers in the yellow glittery water. Some of the children enjoyed using funnels in the water, watching the water as it poured through the funnels. The children have also been making some beautiful yellow collages using tissue paper, straws, ribbon and sand. The children have been doing their own gluing using spreaders. We have also been using our imagination with farm animals and straws and beginning to say the names of the animals and the noises they make.
Next week we will be focusing on the colour red. We've got lots of exciting activities planned

We are also planning to make photo albums containing pictures of the children on holidays, day trips or taking part in celebrations so if you would like to add to our album please send a picture to m.barton@martenscroft.manchester.sch.uk
