Throughout January, we have all been exploring the Arctic. Our Core Story has been Snow Bear by Piers Harper.
Throughout January the children have experienced a variety of different messy play activities exploring different textures. This allows the children to make their own discoveries using their senses, curiosity and knowledge.
Mixing, stirring and pouring were all part of the children’s play in our mud kitchen. Mud Play is important for children to develop and practice their fine and gross motor skills, increase awareness of their senses, particularly touch, improve hand/ eye coordination and develop their social and emotional skills, including taking turns and leading/following directions.
