A Fun Month at Children 1st @ Newark Town
January may have been a long month with some cold dark days but here at Newark Town we have loved every minute of it!
Space activities have been our special focus and we’ve had plenty of adventures inspired by the lovely story ‘Whatever Next’ by Jill Murphy. The children dressed in their NASA suits ready for their journey into space.
Our Space topic always prompts much discussion. Whilst chatting about what to take on their journey to the moon Isobelle thought that her rabbit would enjoy the experience. Isaac decided to take his daddy and a duck with him. Alicia was thrilled by the idea that her rocket would blast off to the stars.
The darkness of the January days meant that it was a good time to explore the concepts of light and dark. The Bobtails were busy in their den. Elsewhere we’ve had number hunts to help with number recognition and we’ve been looking at repeat patterns.
January was fun but now we’re looking forward to a busy February!
