Our topic this half term is The world around us.
We started this topic by looking at the different types of weather. We listened to the opening of the story ‘The North Wind and the Sun’ and had a discussion about how we thought the story would end. The children wrote their ideas and predictions in their writing books and we then acted out the story’s ending together with the children taking on the role of the either the wind or the sun.
We then used our senses to explore the wind; we listened to the trees rustling, looked at the clouds moving and felt the wind blowing us. We used the bubble machine and scarves to find out which direction the wind was blowing and even managed to catch some wind in bags!
During this half term we will be exploring and finding out about water, the seasons / signs of spring and Easter. We always follow the interests of the children when planning our themes and topics.
