Learning about cycles in EY1

Children in EY1 have been learning about the various Earth's natural cycles. Their understanding of the concept of cycle has been supported by a variety of hands-on learning engagements.  Below are photos of activities which demonstrated the Earth's movements.

We made a list of things we do during the day and a list of things we do at night and talked about how day and night are different.  Then, we learned how the night and day cycle works.

We talked about the three seasons in Northern Thailand and how our lives are influenced by them. Their understanding was supported by this visual and kinesthetic learning activity which demonstrated the movement of the Earth in relation to the Sun.

Mum's and dad's make sure to check out our EY1 blog so you can see how we learnt more about cycles when we visited the school farm.
