Spring 1

Our topic for this half term has been Dora the Explorer. Dora has been on adventures to different places. She went to the arctic and saw some penguins and polar bears. The children made polar bear faces and we created an igloo in the unit. We talked about hot and cold and the children loved feeling the ice and watching it melt.

Dora went to the ocean and we learned about the creatures that live in the sea and we made fish and jelly fish.

 

Outside we made maps of the playground for Dora and Map to explore and the children made their own maps.

 

We also took the children to visit the castle so that the children could compare the painting of Nottingham from the East with the view of Nottingham today.

 

The children created their own portraits using paint.

The children also celebrated the ‘shake up your wake up’ breakfast week by inviting their parents to have breakfast with us on 25th January. Everyone was very good at tasting the different healthy breakfast.

 

We talked about Spain and learned how to say ‘hello’ and ‘how are you?’ in Spanish during Modern Foreign Languages week on 1st February. We talked about some of the traditional aspects of Spanish life and we practised some Spanish flamenco dancing.

 

On 11th February white Post farm are going to visit the foundation Unit. Dora’s friend Diego loves to look after animals. The children are going to be able to see and handle a range of pets including ducks, rabbits and a tarantula!
