I hope everyone had a wonderful, fun and safe holiday with their family! Now we have said goodbye to our previous IEYC Unit – This is Me!, we are now excited to begin a new IEYC Unit called Weather Wonders. The Unit is split into 4 Learning Blocks; How’s the Weather?Fun in Sun!, Stormy DaysSnow and Ice.
We have added the new Learning Letter for this unit in your child's tray at school for you to take home. You can also download a pdf of the learning letter on the intro page of our nursery blog.

Before we begin the Learning Blocks we will have our Entry point which is the offical launch of the new unit. The children will discover a box in their classroom left by Mr Cloud. Mr Cloud will have left them a special note explaining that he is lending them his Weather Waver (magic wand). The Weather Waver makes the classroom experience different weather types. The children will help make different weather in a variety of crafts, these can be added to our role-play Weather Station.  

The next initial stage of the new unit is called Capturing Curiosity (previously The Knowledge Harvest). We will ask the children big questions and the children will practice their communication skills by expressing their thoughts and ideas. They will also have the opportunity to express what their interests are and what they would like to learn most in this unit.
