Classroom News & Photos - EYFS

09 February 2015


Reception children have had a great time learning all about magical journeys and special objects. We began by reading the story ‘The Nowhere Box’ about a boy who converts an old box into a travel machine and travels to lots of magical places. Children created their own travel boxes and chose where they wanted to visit. They used non-standard measures and other tools in our classroom to measure and make their boxes. They created buttons for their box and wrote labels and captions about their special journey.

We then read a story called ‘Mummy’s Magic Handbag’ and children created their own magic bag. They decorated their bags with a range of sensory materials and discussed the different patterns and colours they used. They then drew and labelled special objects to go inside their magic bag.

Children had a lot of fun playing with their bags and boxes with their friends when they were finished.
