Fun at Pre-school

Arctic Animals Theme

Update 31/1/19:

The children made shape penguins. Promoting cutting skills and sorting into shapes.
Exploring arctic animals in water.


The children will be making more fun things this coming week for our Igloo role play area.


Update 25/1/19:

The children have been making footprints in the snow with the arctic animals and paint.


The children have also been matching numbers with quantities and working on their counting skills.


Update 24/1/19:

The children have been making polar bears for our Arctic theme role play area. The children are thoroughly enjoying this theme so we will continue to develop it further next week.


They also enjoyed learning the polar bear song.  Ask for a copy if you would like to sing it at home.




Coming back into this new year we have thrown ourselves right into the theme of ‘Arctic Animals’. Below you can find photos of some of the activities we have been doing with the children (remember if you want to see photos of your child in action, log into their learning journal on the Tapestry site, here).

Making dough stands for their little penguin buddies so they can play with them.
It’s all gone a bit arctic in the tough tray!


Some topic resources have really helped inspire the children to learn more about the Arctic!


Number ordering to 10 and 20
Arctic colouring and fine motor control tracing activities.

We’re really glad the children are enjoying the topic so far this term. We’ll have some more lovely pictures to share with you soon. Don’t forget, if your child has any home learning they want to bring in to show us, that would be fantastic! We can surely find space on our walls for some glorious penguin pictures and a space on a shelf for a polar bear model.

With some of the temperatures we’ve been having recently, please make sure that the children come to Greenshoots wrapped up warm so they don’t feel like arctic animals themselves when playing outside!
