The Gruffalo and Mr Wolf's Pancakes

What have you enjoyed celebrating this week and why?

Wow! What a busy week it has been in Nursery this week! We have really enjoyed celebrating both Pancake day (Shrove Tuesday) and Book Week. We read the story Mr Wolf's Pancakes where Mr Wolf tries to get help to write his pancake recipe and make his pancakes. The children were all horrified that none of his neighbours would help him. However, we used Mr Wolf's recipe and the children have learnt how to make their own pancakes and of course we all enjoyed tasting them. The children have also been following recipes to make their own play dough and then they have made their own play dough pancakes. Whilst these are definitely not as tasty they are very good to use if you want to practise tossing them in a pan. To celebrate World Book Day we have been focussing on the book chosen by the Early Years children in our school: The Gruffalo. The children have enjoyed retelling the story and they have been busy making Gruffalo Crumble. For our Maths learning we have been sponge printing Numberblocks and thinking about how the numbers 1-4 can be made.
