As part of our term project about "different colours, shapes and patterns" E1 enjoyed their "Green Week"
The children learnt about leaves and did a matching activity using the "Montessori Leaf Cabinet" matching the wooden leaf shapes to real leaves from the garden.
We also looked at green vegetables and fruit. The children enjoyed trying different food such as cucumber, papaya, apple and green herbs such as mint and parsley. We linked this tasting session to a conversation about healthy eating.
Our last week of of term will be our "Rainbow Week" in which we will experiment with colour mixing. We will also learn about the 4 seasons and what colours are typical for each season. We will link this to a music project about Vivaldi's "Four Seasons".
