Well, what a busy half-term we have had! We have been thinking lots about the farm, playing with the animals, naming animals and their young, painting and baking. We’ve learnt through many play opportunities. Our visit from Ian, the farmer, last week really caught the children’s interest and we loved having a hands on experience grooming and caring for the animals. We finished by celebrating Chinese New Year and we looked for animals in the story that lived on the farm. We are all looking forward to next term. I wonder what we will learn next?
Happy New Year everyone and a big hello to all our new starters. This half-term, our topic is ‘Down on the farm’. The children have loved using prepositional language in the small world cereal farmyard. In the picture, the children had correctly placed an animal ‘on top’ and ‘at the side’ of something. We have also had fun exploring our new outdoor maths resources. The boys have especially enjoyed using the real tape measures to measure. This has promoted the use of our mathematical language and has really ignited the children’s self-initiated maths opportunities. Look out throughout the term for further development in the outdoor provision. These are very exciting times for Foundation Stage.
