Reception into nature - Welly Wednesday (Summer 2022)

Week 1 - 4th May, 2022
This week the weather took us by surprise!  Just as we got to the forest in the sunshine, we had a rainstorm! 
We had to rescue the Bog Baby, who was thankfully nice and dry in his Magic Mustard Tin!  We had lots of fun splashing in the big puddles.
We saw that the blossom was falling from our tree and the rain and wind so we decided to make perfumes and potions from the fallen petals.
We rescued a butterfly from the hub room who said hello to lots of the children before flying off over the fence.
For tasty treat this week we made blossom petals (strawberry jam on rice cakes).
Wednesday 8th June, 2022
This week we have learned the 'oi' digraph and today at Welly Wednesday we read Oi Frog!  We had fun with all of the rhyming pairs throughout the story.  We listened for the rhyming odd ones out and matched up rhyming pairs.
We managed to miss the earlier thunderstorm and the warm sun came out.  
Today we spent some time looking around our yard and talking about how to improve some of the areas to play in.
We spent time exploring the different areas of our garden space and enjoyed cheese twists and blackcurrant squash as our tasty treat!
