We celebrated Shrove Tuesday in Robins by making our own pancakes and added some delicious toppings but decided to use play dough versions to try tossing in the air which was probably just as well judging by the number that landed on the floor! Robins also made masks this week of the characters in Jack and the Beanstalk and took on the different roles as each was put in the ‘hot seat’ to be questioned. The children practised using question words and came up with some imaginative ideas such as ‘How do you lay golden eggs?’ to the chicken and ‘Why were you so furious?’ to Jack’s mother. Our role-play area has become a Garden Centre and we plan to do lots of planting over the next few week…perhaps we’ll even grow some magic beans of our own and see if we find a Giant at the top!
