All the children have settled well after an exciting Christmas holiday. This half term we will be learning about floating and sinking, space and Chinese New Year. Keep checking back to see what we have been up to.
Mr Gumpys Outing
We have been learning the story Mr Gumpy's Outing by John Burningham. We can use actions to tell the story and have created our own story maps using picture and words. Outside we have been creating our own boats using different materials, we found that cardboard and paper boats went soggy when they touched the water. In PE we have been thinking about how the animals and people move in our story.
We have been learning all about Space! We have learnt lots of information about space from library books and video clips of astronauts in space. Our home corner has turned into a space rocket and we have been flying to lots of different planets. Outside some Aliens have appeared and we needed to shoot them with some space goo and read the words on their tummy's. Our story we have been focusing on is Whatever Next! by Jill Murphy, we are trying to remember the story by using our actions.
Chinese New Year
To celebrate Chinese New Year we have been learning all about the festival and the country China. We especially enjoyed trying Chinese Food and dragon dancing outside. The children have been selling Chinese food in our restaurant and writing their own food menus.
