OUR LEARNING THEME: TRANSPORT
The new theme of transport has been met with such great interest and passion by the children this week that we will continue the theme into next week. We will look at a selection of vehicles in more depth, asking the children to look closely at them. How many wheels does it have? What sound does it make? How does it move? Can you move like a helicopter?
We will continue to sing a range of songs, including favourites like ‘Th e Wheels on the Bus’ and new ones like ‘We all go travelling by’ .
Sound, move, wheel, car, bus , train, bike, airplane, boat
We will be playing an exciting traffic light game with the children to promote careful listening and responding to instructions. When a traffic light is shown and called out, the children will move accordingly: red( stop), amber ( slow), green( run around the area). The children will be encouraged to think about the space around them and be
Red, yellow, green, run, stop, listen
Maths is all around us. We will practise reciting numbers and counting with the children through a variety of carefully planned activities. How many cars are there in the car park? How many wheels does the vehicle have? Can you give me one/two carriages to extend the train?
How many, numbers 1-10, give me 1, give me 2
