Easter cakes

What fun we have had this morning making our Easter cakes! We discussed how we could melt the chocolate to cover the Rice Krispies and how the eggs on top represented new life.

The Gingerbread Man

The Little Gems have been learning the story of The Gingerbread Man.  They can sequence the story and use puppets to retell the story with friends. We talked about the different characters, nobody likes the sly fox!  The children enjoyed decorating gingerbread men today.

Wow! What a fun afternoon we’ve had exploring with jumping clay. We used our fine motor skills to pinch and stretch it. We made two different flowers, some soil and some pebbles to go on top. 😀
