It has been a very busy and exciting week in Early Years this week, the children are all very much enjoying their new topics and it has been wonderful to see the enthusiasm in each year group towards their learning!
This week Pre-Nursery have been learning the Nursery rhyme ‘Rain, Rain Go Away’. Through this rhyme we have been looking at the weather. Throughout the week we have identified all the different types of weather and we have been using the vocabulary, ‘rain, cloud, sun, wind and snow.’ Outside we looked up into the sky each day to see what the weather was like and answered the question, ‘What is the weather today?’ Pre-Nursery have also been having lots of fun with sounds; using their voices, body, and instruments to create a rain soundscape, from the soft pitter-patter of drizzle to the thundering storm of heavy rain.
Pre-Nursery explored where we can find water around the school and at home and we have been looking at how we use water. Alongside all of this, Pre-Nursery have been dressing up for a rainy day using a raincoat, wellingtons and putting an umbrella up!
