Happy New Year everyone and welcome back! We hope you enjoyed your Christmas break. The children have missed each other and have been very excited to be back.
This week we talked about winter and the changes in weather. We introduced the book Blue Penguin and talked about Antarctica and animals that live there.
Based on the story of the Blue Penguin we transformed the role play area into Antarctica and decorated elements from the story.
In Maths we have been focusing on adding and taking away. We introduced the children to the concept of addition and subtraction. We will continue to consolidate this next week.
Next week, we will delve into the book ‘Blue Penguin’ in more detail. We will read the text again but this time focusing on the feelings of the main character. We will be making information books about penguins and exploring the different ways we can find this information for example, internet, videos, pictures, books, magazines and so on.
