Spring Term 2020

Topic- Big Wide World


We learnt about Maesteg and important places there. We made a pictogram to show how we travel to school. We loved our travel agents and plane/train role play area. We dressed up to travel around the world!


As part of Chinese New Year we used chopsticks to eat noodles, made dragons out of play dough, listened and danced to Chinese dragon dances and songs and made Chinese lanterns to display in our classroom. We loved having a go at mark making Chinese numbers and we ordered numbers on a Chinese dragon.


We used good observation and sorting skills to sort things that we might find in a Chinese house and a house in Maesteg.


We were able to listen to and retell/write about our traditional tales 'The 3 Little Pigs', 'Goldilocks and the 3 Bears' and 'The Enormous Turnip.' We loved using a Bee-bot to retell the story. We investigated the best material to use to build a house, like the 'Three Little Pigs'.

We loved listening to stories about 'The Arctic.' We talked about animals that live there and made a polar bear Arctic picture.We dressed up in warm clothes to go into our igloo in the role play area.



In our Early Year's class this term we will be learning about

Carnivals and Festivals.

We will be exploring different festivals around the world.

We had a fantastic day at Mountain View Ranch. We listened to the Gruffalo story whilst exploring the Gruffalo trail. We found the fairy forest and hid in the tree house. The Roly Poly Hill was great fun. We clambered along the big tree and balanced on the branches. We were brilliant at den building! Gruffalo Land was amazing.

We are looking forward to our trip on Thursday 27th June to Mountain View Ranch. The children will have the opportunity to listen to a story in the Gruffalo area. Please make sure that both you and your child are suitably dressed for this outdoor adventure. 

The children will discover the special 'jobs' that each of the mini beasts have in our world.
