At this time of year, a lot of our learning is done through 'play'. We like to call this discovery time, as the children are constantly discovering things - sometimes without even knowing!
In school, we have been making firework pictures - did you see any fireworks? Can you make a picture to show how fantastic they were?
This week, we will be learning all about remembrance. Have a look at this video to understand what remembrance day is all about https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PMVDDT4B5c
Discovery time can be tricky at home, so make please make sure that your child has time to play with lego, cars, dolls etc. - whatever they are interested in. Try to encourage them to create a story line to their play, and ask questions such as 'I wonder what would happen if..?'
If your child is happy to play alone for a short time, then let them - this will help to develop their creativity. Playing alongside them at certain times will help too - especially with 'I wonder' questions.
One of the most important parts of discovery time, is of course, tidy up time! Try playing the song below and see what happens!
