Today the children helped to carry the Numatic box out from the cupboard. The children got really excited and they all wanted to get in the box. The children predicted how many of them will fit in the box. The children were able to count in sequence alongside Demita. In the box all five children managed to fit in the box..
We had one child at the nursery play peek a boo in the box. He sat down and then stood up and said “boo”
When Demita got Henry Allergen out we talked about not pressing the button and what might happen. We then talked about where the cable goes and a child said “in there” and pointed to Henry Allergen’s. We then tested how well Henry moves around the nursery. A child slowly pushed Henry around the nursery. He was able to move Henry onto the artificial grass. Any surfaces you have ie wooden floor / mats / carpets, Henry is able to move around easily on them without getting stuck.
Next the children tested out the brush that came with the hoover. All children took it in turns to describe the texture of the brush. They said “soft” when they brushed it on their skin. We will figure out next week what that brush is used for!
After feeling the brush, the children then took it in turns to test out the hoover on the artificial grass. We have used different Hoovers and a brush br the best thing about Henry Allergen is, he picks up every bit of dirt in the grass! The children then tried to hoover the pillow but something happened! The pillow got sucked up and they said “oh no” in the future of using Henry Allergen we will move all the pillows.
One child really enjoyed using the hoover so much so he got excited when the hoover was on!
When building Henry Allergen all this week the children enjoy using the bendable pipework and speaking to Henry through the tube!
