Our 2 and 3 year olds have been exploring the story ‘A squash and a squeeze’. The children rein-acted the story with real life objects from our small world area whilst listening to the story read by Carly.
The children then explored play-dough and developed their fine and gross motor skills by squashing and squeezing the dough. Carly encourages the children to copy her by showing them first how to squash and squeeze the play-dough and uses simple language to develop their listening and attention. the children are also relating these experiences to the different parts of the story – developing their literacy.
