Our Theme This Term
A theme is an idea or topic that pre-school practitioners and children can explore in many different ways. Practitioners will integrate each area of the EYFS into the planning of activities provided throughout the term.
Teaching with themes/topics is a good way to engage children in the learning process, helping them to make connections about the world around them.
Preschool themes are based hugely on the childrens interests, environment and shared experiences. Ideas arise from the events that take place during preschool on a daily basis. Therefore themes and topics are often changed, adapted and sometimes even postponed throughout the term.
Children are involved in the planning stages. This gives them a sense of ownership about what they are learning. We all know how much preschoolers like to be “in charge” over what they are doing!
