We continue our topic `Colour my world`. This half term we will be focusing on clothes, places and toys. Our story for this half term is `The Washing Line` by Jez Aldborough and our number rhyme is `3 Green Peas`. We have a lots of colourful learning activities planned. We will use switches to make our own milkshakes using different fruits, milk and ice-cream. The children will have the opportunity to explore local surroundings with a walk around the village looking at our world through different perspex blocks/viewers and a treasure hunt around our immediate school environment. We will have our own tea party in the garden with different colour juices and colourful snacks. The children will have the opportunity to create and investigate different materials and colours when we make our kites and windsocks to take out and fly, hopefully it will be a windy day!
This half term we will be continuing our topic 'Colour My World' and we will be focusing on plants, animals, clothes and toys. The children will be spending lots of time in the great outdoors exploring real plants, investigating seeds/bulbs and filling hanging baskets to brighten up the school environment. In creative sessions the children will be choosing leaves, twigs and feathers to make natural paintbrushes and then we will use them to make colourful patterns. Noah's Ark will be explored through small world play. Barnaby Bear will also make an appearance when he visits a pet shop. The children will have the opportunity to observe, stroke and hold a variety of animals.
