This week we have been learning about our families! We looked at books and video clips on families and learnt that families come in different forms. We enjoyed sharing and looking at our family photos with our friends. We painted the Earth and looked at the globe with magnifying glasses to find out which country we come from and where we live.
In arts and crafts, we made faces using natural objects such as sticks and leaves. We also made family frames using different materials. We enjoyed painting and drawing our family portraits.
This week in maths we have been exploring shapes around us. We used a cooperative structure game called mix-pair-share to recognise shapes. We had fun sorting shapes and going on a shape hunt in the sand.
In literacy we have been listening to different musical instruments and matching them to the correct instrument. We have also been using an interactive animal sound matching game.
We shared the story Giraffes Can't Dance!
This week we learned about our body and skeleton. We used cotton buds to make a skeleton and enjoyed learning the skeleton dance and songs. We have also been learning about the different parts of a body. We used different materials to dress up our body using wool, googly eyes and junk materials. We continued talking about healthy eating and ways that we can stay healthy. We enjoyed making a fruit salad and enjoyed eating them, it was really yummy.
This week in maths we have been learning to order numbers from 1-10. We looked through all the basic shapes and their properties. We also used different shapes to make our own imaginative robots.
This week in phonics session we continue to work to tune into sound, playing Phase 1 games and songs from ‘Letters and Sounds’ such as Metal Mike, Bertha the bus, cross the river, Old MacDonald had a farm and the silly soup.
