Sunshine and Sunflowers
Shadows and Reflections
Sunshine and Sunflowers is a seasonal project that teaches the children about looking after plants, animals and how to keep safe in the sun. The children will become outdoor explorers looking for mini beasts, signs of growth and changes in seasons. We will be planting a variety of different flowers, bulbs, vegetables and herbs and learn about life cycles of plants and animals. The children will take part in cooking with various fruits and vegetables.
Shadows and Reflections teaches the children about how they occur and how they change. The children will go on shadow hunts and explore how we can make shadows change. We will explore various reflective materials and the children will take part in shadow puppetry and produce their own puppet show.
In Physical Development, we will continue with Dough Disco to support the development of fine motor skills and 'First Touch' will be teaching a variety of skills in their session each week including balancing, throwing, catching, kicking, aiming and ways of moving.
In phonics we will be starting the letter sounds of our RWI phonics scheme as well as continuing with Fred Talk (segmenting and blending), alliteration and singing lots of nursery rhymes for our new starters in nursery. In Maths, the children will continue to subitise for up to 5 items, and count forwards and backwards to 5. We will have lots of maths activities supporting the learning of 1 more than and 1 less than, We will be learning about symmetry in patterns by producing our own butterflies.
MiniMash: Children are encouraged to explore MiniMash at home as well as in the classroom, trying out different activities linked to learning across the curriculum.
Home Learning Project: We encourage children to complete a home learning project linked to their curriculum project being studied with some help from their grown up, if needed.
