EYFS newsletter 7th February 2014

On Monday we crossed frozen rivers, stumbled through snow-covered forests and tiptoed through ice caves to find… A polar bear! The children were taken on a musical polar bear hunt by Mr and Mrs Jacobi, discovering all about other types of bear along the way. The children loved joining in with the songs and giving the polar bear a rather rude awakening! We’d all really like to thank Mr and Mrs Jacobi for taking us on such an exciting adventure.
On Wednesday we found a lost bird (just pretend) outside. The children came up with brilliant suggestions of how to help him and we took the learning from this. Some children made maps to help him find his way, some went hunting outside for clues as to why he was lost, some made nests in the Construction Area, some made him friends in the junk modelling. We also made posters to see if anyone could help. Come and see our learning journey board for more!
The children made bird feeders and we learnt what birds need to stay healthy over the cold winter. We will be hanging the feeders outside and checking them next week to see how many birds come to visit!
Next week we will be looking at riddles based on the winter animals we have been learning about. Do you have a favourite riddle, or any type of poem, about an animal?
In maths, we will be counting how many birds visit our feeders and will be learning how to record how many we see.
As the RSPB’s Big Birdwatch is taking place at the moment, perhaps you’d like to try counting how many birds you see in your garden, the park or out of your window. Can you draw any of them and find out what they are?
Don’t forget your handwriting and maths challenges too.
What do I need next week?
Monday: handwriting books in school for new letter sounds
Tuesday: wellies for Forest Schools
Wednesday: PE kit
Thursday: Maths Challenge Books returned to school
Friday: library books
No Stay and Play this week. This will
resume after half-term.
Don’t forget Parent/teacher meetings on Wednesday and Thursday. We look forward to talking to you all.
We would like to welcome Siobhan to our Class and hope you enjoy being part of our school.
