Welcome to EYFS
Our topic this half term is:
Why is Water Wet?
During this topic we are learning about all aspects of water
Let’s get wet! Why does water change shape? Why is water wet? Let’s dive right in and find out all about water and its properties.
We will be learning water themed vocabulary, finding letters in the water, We will carefully move water from one place to another and between different containers. Getting creative we will use watery paints and pipettes to add colour to cloud and raindrop shapes. In our water area, we will play with blocks, stones, boats and small world animals. What will happen when we spray water on different materials? Will they be waterproof? Thinking scientifically, we will explore the shape and depth of puddles as well as investigate floating, sinking and melting. It might get messy when we make garden soup using petals. leaves and herbs. Using our mathematical skills, we will count numbered rain drops and practice ordering numbers. On a rainy day we will walk in our wellies, splashing in the puddles and catching rain. On a warm sunny day we will have fun playing in water.
Reception children will have the opportunity to visit the seaside at the end of this topic.
We will have the opportunity to listen to the stories being read. We can then act out the stories using characters and other resources to bring them to life.
Nursery will be reading: 3 Billy Goats Gruff
Reception will be reading: The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch
