What learning looks like in Little Doves.

 

 

Welcome to the Summer term!

This term we have updated our garden with lots of new resources and we are growing fruit and vegetables. We have strawberries, onions, salad leaves, potatoes, tomatoes and garlic. We will use these for snack later in the year. We encourage the children to help to water the plants and we talk about the changes that happen as they develop.

We have enhanced our mark making area with the addition of a permanent chalkboard and whiteboard with a rack for the corresponding mark making equipment.

We are getting an updated mud kitchen allowing children to mix and serve their wonderful creations in one place.

The books we will be reading are;

 

'The Three Little Pigs' where we will be using Junk modelling to make the three pigs house, yellow shredded tissue paper or crepe paper, sticks and brown paint-sponging with wash up sponges to make the bricks.

'Little Red Riding Hood' We will be making current buns for Granny and having a picnic in the garden. We will be looking at the features of our faces and making faces using our facial features stones. We will also be looking at size ordering.

‘The Gingerbread Man’ we have gingerbread men and with warm milk for snack and encourage the children to dip the biscuit in to see how it goes soft like the gingerbread man is worried about in the story. We will be practicing our fine motor skills by putting pom poms on the gingerbread man using tweezers and running around the garden playing chasing games like in the story as well.

 

Little Doves updated garden!
