Vegetables We will be exploring our senses using vegetables: looking, touching, smelling and eating! We will be preparing different vegetables each week in the Teaching Kitchen to make tasty snacks. Colours Each week we will explore a different colour, using the colour of the vegetable of the week. We will be using messy play and art to create and mix colours. Emotions Each week we will link an emotion to the colour of the week. We will use mirrors, songs, signs and books to learn about feelings. Maths We will sort and group vegetables and objects by their colours and by their shapes. We will be counting seeds, singing number songs and exploring written numbers.
