    Using paint is always a fun way to mark make. You can do this on a small or big scale. Put some paint on a tray/plate and get a ball. Ask your child to roll the ball in different movements.

    Use different sized brushes and ask the children to ‘paint’ the fence using horizontal and vertical movements. You could just fill a bucket with water rather than use paint if you don’t really want your fences painted. The movement is the important bit.

    You could use sand or rice and ask your child to mark make using a range of household objects.

    These heart crumpets were a very tasty snack!

    We decorated a delicious pink wafer biscuit and got to take it home.

    This week we have been estimating during number time. Miss Simpson had a big circle that was filled with hearts. We had to estimate how many children we could fit in the hoop. Our estimations were fantastic. We decided to try it different ways sat down, stood in the hoop and lay down. It was lots of fun and really helped us to think about amounts in different ways.
