This term at Chrysalis we will be taking the children on a world-wide adventure exploring some of the different continents and countries on our planet.
One of the things that we discovered from all of our children’s fantastic photo and video shares during lockdown, was that those of us who are lucky enough to have one, ABSOLUTELY LOVE our gardens!
Providing growing and gardening opportunities for young children enables them to connect with the living environment, something that not all children have access to often enough.
Why do young children enjoy a traditional story so much?
Do you ever wonder why we put so much emphasis in the preschool years on teaching colours and shapes? Why is this so important for young children?
So, let’s start by stating the fact that our world is literally made up of colours and shapes. That is what we see all around us!
Last term the children took great delight in learning about colours in our ‘Colours and Shapes’ project. There are so many great activities that support this area of learning that we found time was running out, and before we knew it, Christmas was upon us! Although we started to touch on the ‘shapes’ element of the project with the children, there is really so much to explore.
So, for this term we will be really focussing on the shapes that make up our world, and how these shapes can be joined together to form spaces and structures.
