World Around Us - November - December 2017

Our topic in November and December will be ‘Fairies, Frost and Father Christmas’. We will be finding out about our teeth and visit our local dentist to find out how to keep a happy, healthy smile. We will investigate how some food and drink affects our teeth. We will play in our dentist surgery in our classroom. We will find out about the tooth fairy, explore fairy lands through stories and imaginative play and we will make a fairy door out of clay. We will do quite a lot of practical science investigating freezing and melting and linking this to winter weather, clothing and animal behaviour. Finally we will look at Father Christmas and some of the lovely traditions we celebrate together during the festive season.
