World Book Day 2017
In order to celebrate world book day this year we had a 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' themed session courtesy of one of our fellow childminders.
We read the book with the children who all took turns at lifting the flaps and discussing, where able, what they could see underneath. We talked about aspects of the story that hey liked and what they thought would happen next.
In order to engage the children further, various sizes of teddy bears were provided together with various sizes of chair. We used this to encourage the children to develop understanding of the language for size, shape and general numeracy although the presence of the bears also encouraged children's ability to share and engage in imaginative play. One of the youngest was particularly drawn to a large teddy bear the same size as himself!
Also provided was some sensory play based on various sizes of bowls and spoons. The children tested out their shopping and mixing skills and, with many children present, were encouraged to take turns and share.
