Throughout November we have continued to look at how the environment is changing from autumn into winter and we have been having discussion about how the weather might change throughout December.

As well as this we have also been looking at under the sea creatures, this extended onto an adult lead activity with a rainbow trout for the children to explore in the water tray.

The children that experienced the rainbow trout in the water tray were able to follow on from it in their own learning and play.

Moving forward into December, we are excited about our Christmas tea party and our trip to the theatre to watch Beauty and the Beast, to get into the season of Christmas.
