    Default January themes

    What themes/topics/activities are you planning to do in January and February, looking for inspiration for when I return to work next week!

    I'm going to be looking at winter.

    Wintry walks/ feeding birds- making bird feeders/ artic & antarctic / hoping for snow / snow painting / ice investigation-science etc / keeping warm and healthy.

    There are nice books about winter, I particularly like 'William's winter wish' and Percy the Park Keepers 'One snowy night' .

    We were going to do a winter theme, but the weather doesn't seem right for it at the moment! I'll hold out a bit and wait for snow/ice before we do our winter activities.

    For now we're going to do a theme around a book although I haven't decided which one yet! This week I'm going to read a few to the children, see which one they seem to enjoy most, then base our theme around that.

    I agree .. it's rather mild! ... maybe do ' weather ' as a theme.

    I also do a book theme each month... Tim Hopgood 's wonderful world is simply wonderful! Gorgeous illustrations and a cd of Louis Armstrong to listen to! I link it to all about and looking after our world.

    What a lovely book. I've not seen it before. I also like the look of the others, particularly Walking in a Winter Wonderland, for when we do our winter theme!

    I remember when you recommended those books a while ago Loocyloo. They are lovely and are hard to resist.

    I'm a bit of a walking advert for this author's books! I just love them all!

    We will be looking at winter, tying in with preschool looking at weather. We also do Big Bird Watch in some way or other.
