Welcome booklet for September 2022
EYFS Areas of Learning
Week 1.3 Forest School Fun!
Learning about Diwali
We celebrated Diwali looking at the book Binny’s Diwali. The children enjoyed making their own Diya lamps.
We had fun reading the Owl Babies story. We learned that owls are awake at night and we are awake during the day. Our cutting skills came in handy to make our own owl puppets.
Week 1.2 Exploring the Colour Red
In Nursery, we investigated the colour red. We found different red objects and talked about the red things we could see. We then had great fun painting and printing using red paint!
Term 3 Changes
we have been looking at the story of the Gingerbread Man. We explored the raw dough using our senses. How does it smell? What colour is it? How does it feel?
After this we made our own gingerbread man and predicted how the dough might change once it was cooked.
We decorated then ate them. They were yummy! The dough wasn’t soft and squidgy anymore it was hard and crispy.
Week 3 Changes
We explored the ice in the tuff spot! We discovered it felt cold and hard. When we held it in our hands it changed. We wondered why this happens. We worked out that our hands are warm and that melts the ice. It turns into water and drips from our hands. It still feels cold.
It was really chilly outside this week and we spotted that the water in the tyres froze each morning and melted by the end of the day especially if it was in the sun.
Long, longest, short and shortest.
This week we have explored long and short. We compared shocks to find the longest and the shortest. We also took long and short strips of paper into the unit to compare and measure the things we found.
