Wow what a fantastic term we have had! Apple and Pears have been busy exploring the ‘Gingerbread Man’ and ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ from describing the characters, making maps and puppets to baking our own gingerbread man. The children have been so engaged with their learning and really enjoyed fairy tales.
In Maths we have been learning about height, weight, capacity and number bonds. The children have been really great at recalling their number bonds and showing the part-part whole method using cubes or written recordings. We have also continued to have a deeper understanding of our numbers, we have focused on 7-10 and how to write and represent these.
In science we learnt about floating and sinking. The children enjoyed experimenting in their continuous provision time, exploring different materials that can float and sink.
This week we learnt about internet safety and how to keep ourselves safe. We read a lovely story called ‘Hannie and the magic window’. The children discussed how to stay safe and report something that might upset them. During continuous provision the children explored creating their own windows of happiness.
Have a lovely well deserved half term and we look forward to seeing you and starting our new learning for Term 4.
Have a lovely weekend,
The EYFS team.
