I am sharing some fairy fun this week – it’s a delayed post due to the blog update last week, but the children were so excited by it, I wanted to share some of the things we enjoyed…
It started with some of my class finding a fairy door on a tree in our garden. One of our lovely Reception teachers had put it there (unbeknown to me) and so it was a genuine surprise!
Then some of our trellis play led to little trees being created and we thought they were might be where fairies lived…
In fact, so much interest was generated from it, that I thought I better ‘seize the moment’.
This little door appeared on our wall before Christmas last year, but we hadn’t heard anything from it for a while…
… so the children were really excited to find a little garden had appeared and that there was a letter from a fairy family!
The CCTV had also caught a fairy on camera! (Click on the picture to take you to Instagram, where I shared the video.)
The fairies were inundated with letters and pictures from the children…
Fairy dust kept appearing all over the classroom and garden! We couldn’t believe it!
There were some logs and glass pebbles on the table that were only there because we hadn’t had chance to put them back where they belong, but this is what happened…
So I thought I would put some out deliberately…
They also enjoyed using their fine motor skills to decorate this spiral (a request that came from the fairies). So much concentration!
