We've just had a Local Authority inspection on Weds...only to find out yesterday that Ofsted are now coming on Tues! Our topic is "Growing" and we've just started learning the Jack and the Beanstalk story as part of our "talk for writing." For the inspection we just had on Weds..I was praised for the way that I had enhanced the provision outside- linking it to Jack and the Beanstalk and the adult-led activity that was going on inside (pretty much all of my children chose to play outside...the only ones inside were the group working with me!) So i want things to be similar to last week...but I need some different ideas for enhancements I can put outside (or inside) linked to Jack and the Beanstalk and growing. Last week we had: -a tray of seeds and beans with tweezers/sorting pots -large milk crates initially laid out as a "castle" -with masks of jack and the beanstalk...a cow outfit..and a "golden egg" -broad beans hidden in the sand tray with letters on (a bit small but I managed to permanent marker letters onto them!) - wooden fairy tale small world characters (placed in a builders tray which actually no-one played with) -we have a role-play area set up inside as a Garden Centre does anyone have ideas of enhancements I can make this week- linked to Jack and the Beanstalk or "growing" ? Or any fab lesson ideas!!?? All ideas would be gratefully received!!
