This Week’s Learning
Week commencing Monday 23rd November
We have come to the end of another busy week and the children have really noticed a change in weather!
We started our new book ‘Owl babies’ by talking about one of the pictures and what the children could see. We had some great responses such as ‘I think they are sad’ and ‘I think they are hungry’ and finally ‘I can see the dark sky and stars’.
We set up a tunnel in the nursery which we covered in black material to make it really dark inside, and the children used the torches to crawl through it. Some children tapped on the top to make the sound of the rain and we played night time forest sounds to create an outdoor atmosphere. They loved using the torches and talking about light and dark!
The children also made very cute owl collages using lots of different materials. They all looked so different and unique.
In natural thinkers this week we had hot chocolate, which the children loved. As we were drinking, we practiced some of our new winter show songs we are learning. Very exciting! There were a lot of other busy activities happening such as drawing and looking for snails.
In maths this week we looked at tall and short, comparing real objects as well as pictures. ‘The trees are tall and the plants are short’ – an observation made in the natural tinker garden.
Next week we will be continuing ‘Owl Babies’ by Martin Waddell and writing baby owl messages.
In maths we are moving onto long and short. Have a look over the weekend for any examples of long and short around your home.
We hope you have a lovely weekend!
