We continued exploring our Water topic and discussed the importance of water. We looked at water pollution and how we can all save water. We made picture collage of water pollution for art.
Next week we will be revising our water topic and also will be talking abut our favourite things such as ...... my favourite food, colour, animal and make a little booklet.

Our last week of the water topic the learners looked at water pollution and how we can all save water. To share this learning with the rest of the school we are making '' save water' posters to hang around the classrooms. We also tried our very own water filtration experiment and cleaned rubbish out of the school fountain.
We shared all our wonderful new knowledge with parents and took part in a school wide art project. The learners have explored many different aspects of water and have lots of new knowledge after the 7 week topic.
Next week we will start our next unit - Space. For our space entry point the learner need to wear either blue or green clothing to school on Monday. On this day we will make a human earth picture using our bodies on the roof court.
This week in phonics we learned two new sounds. The learners looked at the letter sounds 'p' and 'n' . To link in with letter sounds the children enjoyed some hands on learning while making ppppizzas and nnnnecklaces. We have also been focusing on the correct letter formation when writing. the sounds 'p' and 'n'.
This week we continued looking at numbers 1-20, recognising them by sight, counting and ordering. We have also been linking with our water topic the learners explored the idea of volume and capacity. We used different types of containers and tested how many water could fit into each and if the same amount of water could fit into different sized containers.
Over the next few weeks we will also be focusing on counting one more and one less than the given numbers.
