OUR LEARNING THEMES   

There will be many activities and learning opportunities on offer in the different classrooms this week, based on ideas taken from the children’s interests.  This week this will include working with sea animal themes and water, ambulances, daily routines and a continuation of the dinosaur topic.  These ideas stem from what we worked with last week and embrace new ideas that the children have shown an interest in.  The children will use these themes to flavour their work both inside and out, with art, creative and imaginative play, contruction and water play.  As always the children will be free to explore the different themes on offer in all the classrooms.

KEY VOCABULARY

Wet and dry, siren, emergency, day and night

MATHS

Counting and working with numbers often informs much of our conversations with children as we work and play together.  This week we will focus more on how we can use the children’s play within our multiple topics to facilitate and extend understanding of numbers and counting.  Children will be exposed to counting and recognising numerals.

KEY VOCABULARY

Count, numbers 0-10

DUTCH

Deze week leren we wat het betekent om een echte prinses te zijn.  Waar woont een prinses?  Hoe ziet een prinses eruit?  Gaat een prinses ook naar school?   We halen onze beste danspasjes boven en oefenen voor het prinsessenbal voor het SDS Blijspel op 1 maart.

We komen het allemaal te weten in het boek `Willewete: Prinsessen!`
