Welcome to EYFS
Our topic this half term is:
Are Carrots Orange?
During this topic we are learning about;
What the children like to eat. Are they happy to try something new?
We will explore these questions and more as we think about eating well and being healthy.
Food marvellous food!
What do you like to eat? Are you happy to try something new? Do you know what this is? What does it taste like?
It’s time to find out more about eating well and being healthy.
This half term, we will think about supermarkets and the food sold there. We will talk about jobs in the supermarkets, take photographs and collect a rainbow of healthy foods. We use our senses to investigate the foods, and bravely taste things we’ve never tried before! Using our research skills, we will read all about fruits and vegetables in non-fiction books. We will plant seeds and look after them carefully. We will compare and sort different fruits and vegetables, and create stunning still life paintings. Setting up a class supermarket will be lots of fun; we will make signs and sell things to our friends. Following instructions and working together will help us to create healthy snacks. We will also find out what happens to our bodies when we exercise. Using our mathematics skills, we will weigh ingredients to make delicious biscuits or cakes, and count yummy currants to decorate them. Things could get messy, but it’ll be lots of fun!
At the end of the project, we’ll have an open afternoon to show you what we’ve learned. We’ll also have a look at the carrots we grew to find out whether all carrots really are orange.
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: The Enormous Turnip
Reception will be reading: Oliver’s Vegetables
‘Talk for Writing’, is the time when we really think about the contents, characters, settings and language within a book. We choose books which are linked to our topic.
