Little Elms exploring the World

Elmhurst School for Boys

20th January 2017 | Early Years

This first half of our Spring Term has started off with a huge WHOOSH, as we have travelled into Space. Our topic has expanded to many areas in our continuous provision. Our role play area has been transformed into a Space station. Rocket and spaceship building has taken many forms and many times over from junk modelling to Lego, Duplo to STEM. The amount of imagination and concentration that has gone into our construction this fortnight has amazed me.

 In Literacy, we have read several space themed books but the boys voted for 'Aliens love Underpants' as their favourite, so this week they have been drawing some pictures and doing some writing on the book.

On the creative side, we have been designing underpants, and singing songs about the planet and space. I’m sure some of the parents have grown tired of “We are the planets big and round watch us happily fly around.” But, I’m also sure you are impressed with the knowledge they have gained from the song.

Finally, in Maths the boys have been placing pants into size order and hanging them on a washing line for the aliens to play with. All in all, fun for everyone and learning as well.

We will continue to ‘Explore our World’ next week by going Under the Sea. We will then be exploring Cities and Towns and then finally finishing On the Farm.
