LEARNING THEME                                                                                

Science week has been really exciting, so we will be continuing our scientific experiments again this week! We will be exploring different textures and consistencies and how these can change in different circumstances. From water and soap to bubbles and a hard chocolate bar to warm melted liquid, the Nursery cubs will be looking at how and why they change.

MATHS

This week the children will continue to examine things in relation to their length and weight. We will be looking at who is the tallest person in our class and who is the shortest? What is the heaviest thing that we can find? What is the lightest? The children will be encouraged to share and record their findings to promote language and literacy skills also.

UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD

Continuing on from our work on “sink ing  and  floating’’ last week, the children will be looking at why somethings float while others sink. The children will be encouraged to explore ways that we can protect any  objects that would sink by making them waterproof. Children will be invited to create their own waterproof device and then test the results of it in a tub of water.

LITERACY

Our literacy this week will link in with the cooking and experimenting that we will be doing with chocolate bars. This week the children will be encouraged to create recipes for their very own chocolate cakes. Children will be asked to write and draw the ingredients of their cake, the steps to make it and what they expect the finished product to look and feel like.
