The Reception Room at The Stables have had so much fun with their learning this week with their topic of "Transport".
The children have been focussing on boats and have been incorporating letter and name recognition into their activities. They have been on trips to the "beach" to go on treasure hunts and find letters for their names, and they have also been exercising their fine motor skills by creating tracks and waterways for the vehicles and boats.
They put their engineering skills to the test to construct their own boats using junk modelling, and then tested them in water to see if they would sink or float. Watching the builders and diggers proved to be a popular activity and it prompted lots of questions and discussions from the children about tractors, how things work and what the different tools are used for.
