Bringing The Outdoors In!


The Sweetpeas have recently taken an interest in shapes and colours so we thought what better way to promote this than using snow!
The Sweetpeas used their fine motor skills to control the wooden shapes as they stamped them onto the sheet of snow before noticing the shapes and colours made! We discussed the shapes and colours we could see and asked the Sweetpeas if they were able to identify them, doing this while encouraging sharing the blocks with one another. We also spoke about the texture of the snow and whether it was hot or cold.
To extend their learning regarding shapes and colours we spent our afternoon recognising familiar shapes and colours within our environment.
Lots of love,
Everyone at Leighs xxx
