Week Commencing 22nd January 2018
Our baby room will be talking part in more bug themed activities; we will be looking at some bug books and pictures. We will also be comparing the different bugs to each other and using our numbers to count spots and legs.
Outside this week we will be exploring tunnels and hiding in and under them. I hope we find some big bugs!
For rhyme time this week the children will be signing ‘Incy, Wincy Spider’ using their hands and fingers to imagine they are spiders.
Next week in the toddler room we are on the look out for birds! We will be looking up high, down low and all around to see what different types of birds live in our environment. We will be talking about their colours and then comparing it to our bird book at circle time.
The toddlers will be getting their chef hats on this week and creating bird seed feeders for the birds in the garden. We will be hanging the yummy food on the tree ready for them to eat.
We will be practicing our bird calls to see if we can make sounds just like the birds.
This week in pre-school we will be introducing people who help us. We will be writing letters to the people who help us and thanking them. We will be dressing up in our role play area as people who help us such as fire fighters, the police and doctors. We will be reading stories and finding out information from the computer to help with our discussions on this topic.
In the garden we are continuing to look at the changes in the weather. We will also be doing some more fun experiments like volcanoes such as mixing coke and mentos and seeing what happens. We are also continuing with our self portraits and talking about the differences and similarities we can see between ourselves and our friends.
