In Literacy, the learners have been so keen making prints on the zebra using marbles and brushes.
In music time, we had fun making loud and soft sound using boom whackers. We love singing “Jungle Boogie”.
This week we have been continuing to explore and find out information about 'under the sea'. Our focused for this week learning was about turtles, octopus and crabs. We watched video clips and read information books on the creatures. We also looked at video clips of beautiful and colourful corals underneath the sea.
We enjoyed making sea turtles and hand print crabs.
I am learning to sort pom poms into different colours.
We are working together, learning to sound out the initial sounds in words. We enjoyed feeding metal mike and tried hard to say and sound out the letter sounds.
I am learning to count numbers reliably up to 10. I enjoyed counting the fish in the fish bowl.
Stories we have been sharing with our Nursery learners.
,This week in topic we have been learning all about the life cycle of a butterfly. We read the story of The Hungry Caterpillar and each drew a story map to help us retell the story. In the story the hungry caterpillar ate lots and lots of food but he was still hungry! He ate so much food that he had a stomachache and became a big, fat caterpillar. He later span a chrysalis and stayed in it for 14 days. Then he came out he was a beautiful butterfly. We also made a life cycle of the butterfly using different types of pastas and lentils.
In maths we have been learning all about repeating patterns and symmetry. We worked together to make a really long repeating pattern of shapes. We also painted on one half of a butterfly and folded it in half to make our own symmetrical butterfly wings. We used mirrors to see the symmetrical pattern of leaves and butterflies. We also enjoyed playing the symmetrical game on the interactive board. We also planned to paint our butterflies and camouflaged them in our outdoor play area. Can you spot them?
