Baddies, Superheroes and Princesses in Room 9
Our Disney topic has continued to bring to life a variety of magical tales.
For Halloween week we explored “baddies” with the story of “101 Dalmatians”. We danced to Cruella DeVil, found our photos hiding in the old DeVil house, made Dalmatian art, dressed up for our soft-start choices and had a pumpkin themed sensory play with red lentils (and communication boards!). Our numeracy activity counted “Ten Little Monsters” and our spooky Halloween bucket featured a chance to make our own magic potion, and alongside the fun of seeing the bubbles when we combined ingredients it was also great to see how much more confident the class were to transition for a turn-taking activity.
We then moved on to “superheroes”, and who better than “The Incredibles” to animate the theme?! We all enjoyed playing with superhero masks as our signifier for story time, so when we got to art we each had a chance to make our own superhero masks. We sang superhero songs and looked out for our superhero selves flying across the interactive board.
Last week we explored the theme of “Princesses” with the story “Aladdin”. We danced to songs from the film for our listening activities, spotted our photos flying across the interactive board on a magic carpet, counted Princesses for numeracy, for bucket time we were invited for a magic carpet ride, and in art we designed our own magic carpets. Our messy play communication activity saw our princess picture on the tray with some amazing cornflake hair!
Where will our Disney adventures take us next?
