Term 2

Theme: Once Upon a Time

This theme has had us reading lots of fairy tale stories.  In particular, we have been learning about Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Three Little Pigs, and The Gingerbread Man.  We have made and decorated gingerbread men, made stick puppets, dressed up (wigs and all!) to pretend to be Goldilocks sleeping in Baby Bear's bed, and made lots of mess exploring porridge oats!

Theme: Winter Wonderland

We have had the chance to experience lots of different opportunities during our Winter Wonderland theme.  We had a magical time visiting Santa at Gates Garden Centre in Cold Overton.  We met his reindeer, rode in his sleigh, and gave him our Christmas 'wish list'.  Santa then gave us a 'golden ticket' which we then used to 'buy' whichever toy we wanted from an elf.   We then used PECS to ask 'Magic' the elf for a snack of our choosing and paid for it ourselves.


We have also been exploring hot and cold messy play activities to help us develop our interoceptive awareness, such as cold water, insta snow, hot water bottles, and heated hand warmers.  We also compared how the temperature of milk changes when it is heated up and had a tasty time making hot chocolates with all the works!
