Show 'n' Tell
Each day after snack we have had the opportunity to ‘Show ‘n’ tell’ things the children have brought from home that relate to the colour, shape, sound or number that we are focussing on that week.
Due to the current situation re COVID-19 we will continue with our themes 'in house' but will put 'showing' on hold until the children are able to bring in items from home again. We will of course have frequent opportunities for children to 'tell' something they would like to share with the group.
Whilst we draw on our planning from the children's interests and individual needs. we also have an underlying theme for planning on a 2 year rolling basis. The themes are as follows:
First half term: Nursery rhymes/ familiar and favourite stories/'helicopter' stories /Harvest
Second half term: All about me/respect for others/feelings.
First half term: Time / seasons/months of the year / days of the week.
Second half term: Farms / growth / planting / what we need to grow.
First half term: Our local environment / our village map / community
Second half of term: Transport.
First half term: Nursery Rhymes / familiar and favourite stories / 'helicopter' stories/ Harvest.
Second half term: All about me/my family/ pets/ differing abilities and needs / children around the world.
First half term: People who help us/professions.
Second half term: Wild and extinct animals.
First half term: Space.
Second half term: The sea.
