All About The Weather!


This week we have been looking at the weather as our theme in Sweetpeas. The children enjoyed exploring a sensory tray focused around the different weather we see in the world around us.
They enjoyed exploring the different textures in the tray including shaving foam, felt, wool, noodles & pasta. Best of all they loved to mix it altogether using their hands. We also used our weather peg people and this provided opportunity to talk about colours. The Sweetpeas attempted to match the people to the corresponding colour in the tray.
Each morning during circle time we discuss what the weather is like outside that day using our flashcard pictures. This allows the children to be observant and aware of their surroundings.
We extended our play by doing some painting. The children enjoyed having their hands painted to create hand prints, which we then used to create a mobile we could hang in our room.
Lots of love,
Leigh and the team xxx
