Editor of Nursery Education PLUS, Tracey, introduces our ‘Sky high’ themed activities and offers more ideas for exploring the topic with your children:
‘The clouds provide great inspiration for creative ideas and exploring more about the world and weather patterns. You could extend discussions to investigate rainfall and different seasons. Subscribers can access the ‘All-weather Ted’ poster in our web resource bank as well as lots of great themed activities. Don’t forget to try matching the colours and gems in our interactive game, ‘Rainbow jewels’.’
