Lots of role-play this week which has seen the children "going to the hospital", having their hair done, building a variety of structures which have incorporated measuring & problem solving, police officers taking finger prints, going on holiday and decorating the house for Christmas!
Mermaids have been a favourite topic of play this week too, from reading stories about them to actually creating some in the craft area.
The new Duplo resources were used to create a tiger cage, robots/transformers and even a totem pole
On Friday we enjoyed a leavers' service with Playbox to celebrate new beginnings and how the children have changed and grown since starting at Noah's Ark.
Adult support was given with:
resolving conflict and sharing
independence with accessing resources
sustained shared thinking
how to care for the environment
We were lucky to have more new toys delivered this week which the children used extensively.
