Writing: children use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds
- Sticky plastic sheets cut in to small squares – top tip – self making ID cards work well here!
- A pre prepared example of a petal window – with tiny scraps of petals, grasses and leaves on.
- Access to flowers, grass, leaves, sticks, natural materials.
- A3 Clipboards, Pencils and paper with pre prepared heading on – “Look! In summer I see……….”
Take the children on a small walk, asking them to look for different colours. Encourage them to look at large skies and clouds, trees, and the smaller flowers and leaves on the grass.You can use treasures from previous adventures and look for them at home.
Sit together in a circle and ask the children to point to something green, then yellow, brown, white, any colours you may see.
Discuss together how the colours you can see might change in wintertime, spring or autumn.
Tell the children they will be making their own special window of summer – they can keep it and always look through it to see a tiny piece of summer.
