Our theme this half term is ‘Growing and Changing’. Ocean Class have been working hard to explore each of our senses – touching, tasting, seeing and hearing. Each week we have key songs and stories that relate to our ‘sense of the week’.

This week we have been focusing on hearing. Key songs have included ‘Do your ears hang low?’, ‘I hear thunder’ and ‘Old MacDonald’. We have enjoyed exploring a range of loud and quite sensory materials and each day we choose an instrument for our music and movement session. Our key story is ‘Going on a Bear Hunt’ and children have enjoyed touching bears and moving them around the classroom. We explored our own tuff tray forest and children were excellent at finding (and eating!) the edible bears!
