Term 3 - Week 2

This week we have been looking at owl babies, as the children found a nest in the tree in our outside area. Following the children’s interest we read the story, looked at where owls live and what they make their nests from. The children discovered that owls are night time animals too. This lead us onto making our own nest cupcakes with the children exploring weight and how much ingredients was needed to make them. We also explored how the chocolate melted and to be safe around hot objects.

In Maths we have been looking at numbers 1-5. The children were exploring one more and one more from a given number. We even spoke about how this would look as a number sentence and using the correct signs.

In PE we have our first lesson with the PE coach. The children really enjoyed throwing and catching activities and team work games. They all listened very well too.

Thank you for your support over Christmas to read with your child and practice their sounds. Please can you continue to read with your child each week and practice their new sounds which will be added into their reading records each week.

Have a lovely weekend,

The EYFS Team.
