We have been celebrating Book week Scotland by having stories in lots of different forms.
We have read a story outdoors at Muddy Mondays all about the cold weather. This linked in well with us talking about seasons and the children interest in ice and cold weather.
Then on Tuesday Aeya’s mum came in to do a drama/gym lesson with us and used the story “Jack Frost”. The children acted out part of the story and used their bodies in different ways to move around the gym hall! A huge thank you for doing this, the children loved it!
On Wednesday and Thursday we have been using the computer and smart board to have stories.
Tomorrow we are going to be working with primary one in the morning learning about books together.
All week children have been bringing in stories from home, and we have been sharing them at gathering time.
Please see our display in ELC and our floorbook for more photos and quotes!
The last couple of weeks we have been learning about the seasons and talking about Autumn and the changes in the weather.
We have experienced this when we have been outside as part of our “Muddy Mondays” , as well as our daily outdoor play. We have been noticing over the weeks the changes in the world around us, leaves changing and a change in the temperature!
We have been doing autumn, jigsaws, reading seasonal stories and gluing, drawing and painting some lovely autumnal pictures!
We have seasons activities set up outside and inside, like our small world house. We also have been doing some autumn songs, and drama in gym and using the colour magic computer program to draw seasonal trees.
W can’t wait to share our learning with you next week at stay and play – please add your name to the whiteboard if you can make it!
