Hi all,


Hope everyone had a lovely summer...


For this half term our umberella topic is Ourselves/ All about me.


Can anyone share some exciting ideas?


How did you enhance all the different areas and what table top activities did you use?


There is a real issue with resources and money in my school so we are trying to do everything on a budget.


Thank you for your help :)

Malleable-birthday cakes or buns resources-How old we are? This has been the most popular area

Numeracy-teddy bears of all shapes, sizes, colours

Role play-Home basic provision with telephone, pens, notepad and takeaway menu for our favourite meals at childrens suggestion

Creative-paper plates and collage resources to make silly faces

Easel-flesh tones with primary colours

Mark marking-Birthday cards and a cut and glue sheet to match children playing and new felt tips!

Marble racer has been the most popular game so thats being left on the floor and near the bricks. Going to add some golf balls tomorrow and the play may possibly extend to include the bricks.

Tactile tray-value cornflakes (31p at Morrisons) bowls, spoons, empty milk cartons. empty small cereal boxes (the multivariety type) Favourite cereal and we've done a carpet time on how breakfast in important now we come to school all day
