Up in the Air

This half term we are enjoying the topic "Up in the Air" and sharing the books Whatever Next and Owl Babies. We have tested bubble mixtures and tried to find the best place to fly a kite! We have flown around our Forest Classroom being an Owl Baby and we have had a picnic on the moon with Baby Bear. We have written postcards from the moon and generated a word bank of describing words about flying in a hot air balloon. We have used the program Word Wall on the interactive board to sort into categories and considered which objects might fit into both groups. We have measured different sized Owl toys and  used hot air balloon strings to count and add up. Our P.E. lessons have developed the skill of bouncing balls with control and dancing the story of the Blue Balloon.Below are some pictures of us enjoying our learning.

Our Autumn topic  is  called "Hands Across the World".

We will be learning about ourselves and our friends. We will learn about different languages and traditions that our friends may know. Some of the books that we will be sharing are The Tiger Who Came to Tea, Need a Trim Jim, Handa's Surprise, Handa's Hen, We Went on a Safari and Katie and the Waterlillies. You might like to share these books at home, find them in the library or watch the film clips on You Tube to support your child's learning. We will end the topic with a French Immersion Week. We will share some typical French food, learn some French Country dancing and also explore the paintings of Claude Monet.

Look at all the fun we had, learning about the book Handa's Surprise.

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development.

Physical Development in the Foundation Stage is taught across the curriculum and throughout our indoor and outdoor provision. Children enjoy free-flow access to indoor/outdoor facilities all day. They also have 2 designated PE sessions each week which will focus on the skills of balance, object control and stability. We work hard to develop fine and gross motor skills so that children grow to be strong and well coordinated individuals.
