Summer 2015by Joan on 06/01/15
Hi everyone, summer is here and this is what we are up to! :)
In our "dramatic play area" we have set up an indoor camping area with a tent and some camping play activity items. Children are learning how to pack for a camping trip and how to make a list, while determining what items they will need.
Our flower garden is very pretty this year and the children take turns watering the new plants. On the curriculum for science is "parts of a flower" and "all about ants". For "health and safety" we are "washing hands", completing the "fire-drill", learning "walking-feet" and practicing "the golden rule".
The older children are learning poetry with the poems "The Crocodile" and "Hippopotamus". The younger children are learning the sounds and shapes of letters. For social studies we are learning the importance of the farm. For Geography we are learning the globe and maps, focusing on "Continents".
We hope everyone will have a very safe and happy summer!
