We have had lots of fun learning about minibeasts! Owlets have been on minibeast hunts, read stories about minibeasts, enjoyed playing instruments to the creepy crawly calypso and taken part in lots of other minibeast activities too.
Owlets have been learning about how to be healthy. We have thought about making good food choices, different exercises that we can do and that it's important to wash our hands and brush our teeth. We went on a trip to Tesco and got to explore different parts of the store. We looked at the fish counter where we held a fish and a squid. We visited the bakery and even got to go in the freezer, brrr! We also looked at the different fruit and vegetables in the store and worked together to make a fruit rainbow... and then we tried some of the fruits and vegetables that we had found.
The children have loved the topic of shoes. We shared the story of the Elves and the shoemaker and then the next day we had a tiny message from the elves! Owlets have been busy writing messages to the Elves. We also enjoyed making our own shoes just like the Elves in the story. We visited Clarks shoe shop to have a look at and take photos of the different shoes. The children have enjoying working in and visiting the shoe shop in our role play area, the sparkly high heels were very popular!
Our topic has been Space. We shared stories like Q Pootle 5, Whatever Next and Aliens Love Underpants. The children have been learning the names of the planets and they enjoyed making clay aliens and frozen aliens. We visited Neptune and found some animals frozen in ice. Luckily the children could melt the ice to rescue them! We finished off the topic with a moon picnic. The children made cheesy moon biscuits and star biscuits to share with their grown ups at the moon picnic. Thank you to everyone who joined us for the picnic.
