This week our EYFS learnt all about Christingle and had so much fun making their own to take home.
A very exciting day today! Our first egg is starting to hatch. All the children are very excited to see the chick tomorrow.
A little sneaky peak at our Early Years classroom provision.
This half term we will be looking at the texts, ‘How to Grow a Dinosaur’ and ‘The Bad Seed’. We will be looking at the changes around Spring and we have set up the classroom so the children can explore these themes independently.
We’ve been talking all about Valentine’s Day today and the children have been making little chocolates and cakes in the playdough area. We have also provided some rose quartz for the children to explore as this stone represents love ❤️ We look forward to making some little cards for the ones we love too!
This week the children have been asking where bread comes from whilst eating their morning snack. We watched a video about the process of making bread and decided to make some of our own to deepen the children’s knowledge and understanding. The children loved the whole process, but they especially liked eating it!
Our posters have worked!!!!! We welcomed the wolf into our school and we have spent our morning finding out about wolves The wolf was very curious about our school and wanted to see everything…he paid a visit to each classroom!! We are so glad that we can help the wolf finally find his way back home
Early years have had a very exciting week!! On Monday we found footprints in the frost and we identified them as an Arctic Wolf’s prints. We have read a story called ‘The Way Home for Wolf’, about a wolf who is trying hard to find his pack. All week we have been finding clues that the Arctic wolf is around school. We really want to help him find his way home. The children have designed ‘Lost’ posters to help find him and we have placed them inside and outside of our school. We hope they help us find him. We have also enjoyed some wolf painting, sensory trays and role play, all linked to wolves.
The Colour Monster
Over the next two weeks, early years are focussing on their own emotions and have already completed lots of activities around the story. We have been colour mixing, threading, recognising our own emotions and talking about how we feel and also retelling the story. We can’t wait to share more activities with you all too!
