The children had such a great day on Thursday 11th February celebrating our topic ‘Land of Make Believe’. We did this by inviting all children (and staff!) to dress up as a mythical character or someone from a story that they have enjoyed.
The day was full of activities, all of which were rotated over the day to ensure each child got a chance of each activity. The first activity was clay sculptures with the ‘woodcutter’ Mr Clark where they had to make a model of a mythical character using tools and their fingers,
they then went on to making a ‘mini me’ puppet with Princess Reed where they had to use the fabric, card and paper to create bodies to go under mini photos of themselves.
After playtime they began cooking Dragon Biscuits with the scary sorceress Fletcher where they had to read through the instructions, mix all the ingredients together to make the biscuits.
After lunch the children did some potion making with the magical Ms Murfin! They had to follow the recipe to make sure their potion was the most deadly one!
Finally after everything was cleared away, the children got to sit down and enjoy the dragon biscuits that they had made earlier. ‘They were yummy!’
We had lots of visitors in the day and they all commented on how busy and how much fun the children were obviously having while taking part in these activities. We hope to have many more productive days like this one in the next half term!
