|What we have been up to…||Dates for your diary|
|Personal social and emotional development– drawing faces showing emotions in the sand. Talking about how we feel for example when we smile, laugh and cry. Reading stories about how we feel.
Communication and language- Singing sacks and small group time; talking about what we have been doing at the weekend, learning the days of the week and talking about the weather.
Physical development- we have loved being in the hall we used the equipment and lots of fabric to make a Den, it had benches, balance beams and platforms to climb and jump from. The weather has been good for a few days and we managed to get out on the scoters, bicycles and use the hula hoops and footballs.
Mathematical Development– Colour and number sorting using compare bears and coloured objects. Number and quantity rhymes.
Literacy-Phonic letter sounds using peg games and song bags
Understanding the world– Learning about growing. We have planted seeds in pots, discussed life cycles of a plant and how we are going to look after the plants and flowers in the nursery garden.
Expressive arts and design-Mark making using sand, flour and chalks. Using the junk modelling to create towers and castles for the small world people. And using stickers, and stencils to make beautiful pictures.
