STARTING OUR WEEK OF ST GEORGES DAY FUN!

Today we started our St Georges Day activities. This always means lots of role play and acting out the story Of St George!




We also have a small world area set up with a castle, Knights and Dragons. This is a big hit and the children were happy to have it back out again.


Buddy Bear got all dressed up in his Knights costume.


The Girls spent a lot of time at the small world area today. Little "R" filled a treasure chest with little Diamonds and Little "L" put Knights on horses!



I hung our England flag and gathered up a few England hats for the children  to try on.




When the older children came home from school, the real role play started. We had a chat about using swords safely and before long the Knights and Dragons were in full costume and racing around the garden trying to catch each other! I invested in a new Dragon and Knights costume for the older children and I am really pleased I did. It is so lovely to see older children role play and become immersed and engaged in a make believe world of their own creating! Changing the story, adding their own details, using new language and really making the story their own!




I am very much looking forward to tomorrows fun!
