Winter and Polar Animals

The children in room 1 are thoroughly enjoying this terms theme, especially learning all about Polar Animals such as Penguins, Polar Bears, Snowy Owls, Seals and Walruses. The children have been learning a new number song '5 Little Penguins' which they have all been  actively participating in. We have explored ice, talking about how it melts when left out of the freezer and we have been lucky enough to have experienced natural ice and snow in the outdoor area due to a very cold Winter! We will be looking at Polar animals and their habitats and comparing these to our own homes. We have asked if the parents/carers could send in a picture of their houses on Tapestry to encourage conversation and interaction during group times.
