This coming week our learning will focus on the Big QuestionWhat can we see in the sky today?

We will have practice answering this big question as we take part in the Cloud Gazing activities this week. Through these learning activities we will explore cloud shapes, what clouds are and make our own clouds.

We will also introduce learning about temperatures with our Hot and Cold activities. The children will practice reading and recording numbers, describing temperature and experimenting with it.

We will continue to develop the Personal Quality Cooperation as the children take part in group activities through their experiments. We will also introduce a fun passing game called Hot Potato, this will make links to our learning about Hot and Cold as well as practice our cooperation skills in turn taking. Have a try of this game at home, you can use a stuffed sock or bean bag.
