This week we have been continuing to take advantage of the mild weather in the garden and some of the children have been playing fabulous games like 'Doctors' and making trains. Lots of children have enjoyed playing with the doll, practicing dressing her and putting her to bed, often in pairs.
As part of this week's Harvest theme, Miss Ellen gave a special presentation on preparing corn on Tuesday afternoon. She showed the children some corn she had grown on her allotment and how it evolves from seed to seedling and grows to a plant. She then prepared and cooked cobs with them.
Later in the week some children also enjoyed a cookery session, making and preparing white bread rolls. The children loved mixing, kneading and rolling, as well as eating the finished product!
