What we have been learning this half term.
The first few weeks back at pre school we settled back into routine, got to know each other again after lockdown and practiced our hand washing.
After we were all settled in, we started to learn about our emotions. We learnt the different names of emotions and how to recognize them through reading books together, watching short videos and singing songs about emotions.
Pre schoolers then learnt about autumn, we went on autumn walks and collected autumn treasure to take back to pre school to explore further. We talked about all the changes we saw, played hunt the hedgehog and the autumn colour hokey covey.
During the last week of the first half term we practiced our listening skills. As a large group we meditated and listened to soothing music, did some yoga and had to listen to the instructions. We played listening games and had to guess the different sounds. We listened to lots of stories and used practiced using our listening skills. Our favorite book was the animal Happy and you know it book.
During the second half term we are going to learn about Diwali and fire safety. We are going to take some time to reflect and be thankful for all the things around us as we learn about remembrance Day.
We are going to introduce the children to ten town, maths mastery and learn about King 1.
The last few weeks of term will be taken up with Christmas activities, making cards, calendars and a gift for our special adults. Alongside this we will learn the Christmas story of how Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem and gave birth to Joseph in a stable.
