Here is a collection of photo’s of our beautiful room based on our topic ‘walking in a winter wonderland’. We have been very fortunate this term that we have had lots of snow fun which has really brought our topic to life. We have loved playing in the snow and seeing all the photo’s you have shared with us. For our topic work we have been learning all about the arctic animals and the colours of the winter season. We have been moving our bodies to the penguin dance and enjoyed building igloos and seeing how our body can fit into small spaces. We have been very creative this term and one of the children’s favourite activities was painting on silver foil. In maths, we have been learning to count and comparing amounts using the mathematical language of lots, more or same. The children are doing really well with their listening ears, and one of our favourite phase one phonics activities this term has been ‘playing with words’ where we label and talk about familiar objects and then think about the syllables as we clap them out as we say each word. This activity gives children a good understanding of the pattern of syllables in the words presented to them. Here are some more examples of the fun we have had this term. I cannot wait to start our new topic in spring 2, 'ee-i-ee-i-o', where we learn about farm animals and all things that grow.
