Reception have been busy being creative, getting messy and exploring new ways to create forms of transport.
The children were fascinated by hot-air balloons and enjoyed watching them in their spare time and even demanded I take them to see a show- inshallah.
As a compromise, we made hot-air balloons we could hang in our classroom and decorate with their chosen design.
We made these using the technique; Paper Mache.
The children initially found this activity very challenging which forced them to access their critical thinking and fine motor skills independently.
