In November, our Under Two’s have been exploring Dinosaurs. They have been busy playing with and exploring the dinosaurs in a variety of ways; they have created patterned pictures with dinosaur stamps, used the toy animals to create marks and prints on foil and role played with the dinosaurs in cereal based sensory play trays.

Their Core story this month has been That’s not my dinosaur by Fiona Watt, they have enjoyed exploring the variety of textures within the book.

As part of “working with parents” parents have helped their children, to decorate some Dinosaur templates, using lots of bright colours and an assortment of fabrics.
