Montessori Spring term 2018 plan: Exploring the Continents
Dear parents, as we have created our zoo we will continue to learn about animals and their habitats. We started to learn about the 3 elements, land, air and water and the different types of transport that you would travel on for each. We will now look at the animals that live in the different elements. We will move on to the continents where we will look further into the animals and their habitates but also we will learn about cultures, food, dress, houses, music etc. As it is spring we will start with the continent of Europe looking into the different life cycles.
Please encourage your child to think about where they have been and on which continent they visited, the language they spoke etc. We also have such a variety of nationalities it would be nice if parents wanted to come in and share a story, do some craft or a dance etc linked to the continent.
Another thing I would like to ask is that you encourage your child to treat the environment kindly e.g. put their toys away, turn the pages nicely in a book, tuck their chairs in, put things in the bin not the floor, walk indoors etc. I am asking for your help with this as it will only work if it is consistent between nursery and home..
