LEARNING THEME                                                                                     

The children have been voicing their own ideas for what we do around the classrooms and it is wonderful to see the panthers taking such great care of their jungle and the Meerkats going on adventures in their huge spitfire airplane! The other classes will help extend the  role play areas in their classrooms, coming up with their own ideas as to what they would like to play with.

MATHS

This week we will be talking about length and measurement. How long is a caterpillar? Are they all the same size? Using different sized measuring caterpillars and unifix we will measure how long each ‘caterpillar’ is and count how many cubes. Children can have a go at writing these numbers on white boards too!

UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD

The plants we brought back from the flower shop have now been planted in our garden.  The children are taking extremely good care of them and are loving watering them. We will continue to care for these plants and develop our garden space, creating a sensory experience that we can explore using all our senses! 

LITERACY

The children are engrossed with insects, and want to know how to care for them and findout more about them. The children will use non fiction books to support this exploration. We will draw insects, talk about their different parts and have a go at labelling or writing captions about them.

DUTCH

De peuters puzzelen deze week hun eigen lichaam bijeen.  Kan jij je eigen ogen, handen, mond  op foto herkennen?  We oefenen verschillende gelaatsuitdrukkingen in de spiegel en maken een emotieboekje.
