In FS1 this week we have been learning about the 4 seasons. Other than Winter, children observed the changes between the seasons of Spring, Summer, Autumn and compared them with Winter.
Children watched videos to show how in Winter some trees have no leaves, in Spring, trees grow blossoms and leaf buds, Summer trees are full of green leaves and in autumn leaves can turn yellow, red and orange. We compared this to the different weather patterns in the UAE to help identify the seasons. Children made observational Winter tree paintings and used cotton wool for snow. This week we have also continued to explore freezing and melting through our observation of melting chocolate. Children were very excited to make chocolate cornflakes cakes which they got to eat after their lunchtime snacks.
