Ready for Take Off at Children 1st @ Toton
This term we are exploring the topic of Transport and Travel and recently focused on transport in the sky!
Early Years Yellow have been busy learning about how hot air balloons work and have created their very own hot air balloons. The children took their balloons outside to experiment with. They counted varying numbers of people figures into their baskets and flew them off the raised deck area. The children were very good at recognising the more figures they placed into the basket the faster their balloons fell to the floor!
The children have also been busy flying paper aeroplanes across the garden. They aimed their aeroplanes into the special ‘landing zone’ to see which number they could reach on the number line.
The children have also used aeroplane and hot air balloon charms to recognise numbers and match numerals and quantities correctly.
We’re looking forward to more exciting activities as our Transport and Travel topic takes off!
