Happy New Year 2019 from all of us in Room 1!
Our Themes for January were Winter and Toys. We made a Winter themed door for our room, "ICE" to see you!
We celebrated the New Year by making Firework Cookies which were just as much fun to make as they were to eat!
We dressed up for the weather with our hat, scarf and mittens.
As we had a distinct lack of snow so we made our own for sensory play. SO COLD but tasted wonderful!
We made melted snowmen in cookery
While we waited for the real thing,we made our own snow with coconut for sensory play, it tasted better than real snow!
To bring the Winter theme to life we had a wonderful "Snow- themed" window with Polar bears and penguins.
