Welcome to Term 4
A big welcome back to everyone as we start a fun packed Term 4.
Our new project is called ‘Who has Handa’s fruit?’ and we will explore the story ‘Handa’s surprise.’ It will allow us to explore a range of different fruits and discuss what they look like, where they come from and how they grow. We will be exploring the senses to investigate what the fruit smells, tastes and feels like in a variety of games. The story of Handa’s Surprise is set in south-west Kenya and we will be locating this on the interactive globe and looking at similarities and differences to where we live. We have a selection of African instruments that the children will be encourage to explore and make music with. Our role play area will start as a fruit and veg shop and will provide opportunities for mark making, imaginative play and the use of money.
Look out for information towards the middle of the term for opportunities for you to come and Stay and Play with us.
Don’t forget to access Tapestry, a collection of observations of your child’s learning. If you are not yet accessing Tapestry, it’s very easy!! Please see your Keyworker to find out more.
