As the children are more familiar now with the concept of Biomes, we are using the Tropical Rainforest Biome as an example.
We are recreating this biome with the introduction of animal figurines – looking at what they are called, what they eat, where they sleep and what kind of home they have. To bring this subject to life we are also planning to source some tropical fruits and compare them with European fruit.
This top helps to widen the understanding of the world to the children with names for continents and countries, understanding the different weather and language. An opportunity to express ideas, understand the world and extend their vocabulary.
We have also been making activities and resources which reflect the people who help us in life, such as Doctors, Nurses, Surgeons, Teachers and Policemen. This has also been explored through role play situations, figurines, puzzles and card games.
