Spring term in Bluebells
Younger Pre-School: over the coming term our younger pre-schoolers are going to be focusing on their PSED skills such as developing friendships and expressing emotions as new children transition into our room. We will be developing and re-enforcing boundaries and our new routine.
The children will be practicing their independence, putting on and taking off clothing, especially when going outdoors.
As we move into the warmer spring weather, we will also explore different habitats of the mini beasts.
Our topic for January is Winter and Fairy Tales so we will be talking about what we need to keep us warm when outside and exploring the changes to the outdoor environment. We will also be reading lots of different fairy tales.
Older Pre-School: over the term, we will be focusing on turn taking skills by playing small group games and discussions at group times with the help of our circle time bear. We will also develop our phonological knowledge further, taking part in daily phonic activities. We will be having maths and literacy focus weeks which will be on an alternate weekly basis.
Our monthly topic for January is Winter and Fairy Tales where we will be looking at the changes to our outdoor environment and take part in science and investigation activities, exploring some of the winter changes and why they happen such as ice and the effects it has in different environments.
As we move into the warmer spring weather, we will be observing life cycles and the changes that occur within the cycle.
We will also be reading different fairy tales and having a go at re-telling some of our favourites with the use of puppets.
