Under the Sea and into the Woods!

Posted: 14th October 2013 | Category: Kindergarten

Following the children's interests is so important, as each child has an inbuilt desire to learn about the things they love. This week in Kindergarten, we have all been living under the sea (that's how it feels!) and learning about sharks and jellyfish.

The children have watched fish swimming, have danced like fish, painted fish and thought of 'fishy' words. We were very impressed with 'slippery scaly' and 'big tooth'.

The children's creations were then assembled into an underwater scene which was housed in a cardboard box and has been played with constantly. What will it be next?
Our Woodland Explorers walks have resulted in a wonderful collection of leaves, acorns and sticks, which we have used in a variety of ways in our creations. The children particularly enjoyed our woodland weaving- choosing which colour wool to use was a very serious business! We were able to observe some extended periods of concentration, careful fine motor skills, and delighted smiles as the results were admired by all!


Next week, I have it on good authority that fearsome pirates are on their way. Watch this space!

UPDATE: Photos from the Pirate Party are available to view here.
