Early Years: Olympus

Welcome to Olympus

We have PE on Monday and Forest School on Fridays – please wear warm comfortable clothes as it can be cold in the woodland area. If you have a pair of boots please bring them in and name them.

Starry Night

 

Our current Starry Night project explores the differences in the world at night compared to during the day. It teaches children about the importance of a good night’s sleep, and helps them to discover what is happening in the world while they are sleeping, including finding out about nocturnal animals.

We will share stories including, 'The Way Back Home' by Oliver Jeffers and create artwork to represent the night sky.

Our companion project, Winter Wonderland, has enabled us to learn about the animals that visit our woodland at night. We will share books such as Nick Butterworth's One Snowy Night and Winter Sleep by Sean Taylor and Alex Morss.

We will discover changes that happen during winter, including the types of weather associated with winter. We will explores places that have snow all year round and the types of animals that live there.

Please continue to access Tapestry for home learning opportunities.
