This half-term, on Thursdays and Fridays, we will be visiting a different continent, as part of our 'Ready, Steady, Go' wider curriculum topic.
This week we ventured to Antarctica. We learnt through reading a non-fiction book, 'If you could go to Antarctica' by Fay Robinson that the best way to travel is by boat from South America.
Within out continuous provision, we explored an Antarctica themed tuff tray with different animals, ice and textures, made moon sand (to represent snow) with flour and baby oil, used our imagination with a range of resources to create individual snowflakes, explored our travel agents role play area and even went ice skating in the classroom showing off our dancing on ice poses!
We discussed the freezing and melting process, noting that they were opposites. Our ice melted very quickly in the classroom as we were all so excited to play with it with our warm hands!
In Maths, we have been developing our spatial reasoning skills, rotating shapes and noticing how the same shape can look different in different positions.
I wonder where we will travel to next week?
Have a lovely weekend.
Mrs Nuthall :)
