Your responses will inform us on how we can improve your child’s overall learning experience. The last day to respond will be Monday 20 February 2017. Thank you again for your continued support and feedback. We look forward to hearing your responses. You can access the survey here.

OUR LEARNING THEMES   

This week’s focuses stemming from the children’s interests include mixing and pouring and celebrating birthdays.  With this in mind we are looking forward to enjoying the science, vocabulary and step by step learning of baking cakes and mixing  icing together.  Children will be encouraged to reflect on previous celebrations they have seen, such as birthdays, Christmas and Chinese New Year.

KEY VOCABULARY

Mix, pour, first, next, last, bake, hot, surprise

MATHS

With the children responding so well to our counting focus from last week we will extend this further for another week.  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.
