Our learning theme: Me and My Family
We will extend our learning theme of “All about Me” but rather than thinking about just ourselves, we will be looking at our whole family. Who is in your family? How are our families the same/different?
The children are creating bonds with their teachers and exploring friendships with their new peers. As a main focus point this week, we will be playing lots of games as a whole group, remembering each other’s names and talking about ourselves.
Key vocabulary: friend, teacher, same , different
Understanding the World
As children look at the photos of their families we will talk about the different people they can see, and reinforce their understanding of belonging to a family. Who is in your family? How many brothers do you have? Do you have a sister?
Key vocabulary: family, mummy, daddy, brother, sister, baby
Children will be invited to draw pictures of themselves and their family members. Lots of opportunities will be provided throughout the unit for the children to engage in mark making. A range of media and materials will be available for the children to explore.
Key vocabulary: crayon, marker, brush, paint, mark
De kleuters hebben een geweldige start gemaakt in de Nederlandse klas. We hebben kennis gemaakt met Jules en hebben hem al uitgebreid verwend en vertroeteld.
Volgende week lezen we het boek `Mama kwijt`. Kleine uil valt uit het nest en is zijn mama kwijt. Samen met de kleuters zoeken we naar mama. We vertellen over onze eigen familie en maken een familieportret.
