Week commencing 8th January 2024


Welcome back parents to the new year. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and had lots of fun. This week the children have been learning all about Winter.

This week, the children have:

* Explored what Winter is and what is looks by going on a Winter's Walk in our school. Perhaps you could explore winter at home.

* Discussed what we wear for Winter and what different seasons look like. Talk to your child about what clothes we need to wear now that it is getting colder.

* Played in the new Winter house, getting dressed for Winter and making warm foods

* Practised our cutting skills on the making table to make some snowmen.

* Played ' roll a snowman' maths game, great for dice recognition.

* Made some bird feeders using cheerios and pipe cleaners. We will hang them up around school this week and next.  Perhaps you can make some feeders at home too!

* Used our 5 senses to talk about a winter picture to help develop our vocabulary.

* Painted snowman using special puffy paint, we hope they turn out well!

* We also role played polar bears and penguins in the water play area.
