As part of our space topic this week, we have made fruit rockets. The children looked at and talked about lots of different fruits and what they would put onto their rockets. This linked in well with maths in class this week, as some of the children made repeating patterns with their fruit too!
Science Colour Mixing
We have completed our second science experiment of the week. The children have been experimenting by making different colours. We squirted paint into bags with paper inside, sealed the bag and then pushed and squelched the paint around to make different colours. We had a great time!
Stay and Play
Today was our stay and play session in the foundation unit. Parents came and shared activities with the children. We had a really enjoyable time and the children enjoyed playing with their mums and dads and proudly showing them all of their wonderful work they have completed this half term during our space topic. Fun was had by all!
The Great Pet Sale
This week we have started our new topic learning about different animals. We are looking at pets this week and our book of the week is ‘The Great Pet Sale’. This morning, the children sequenced the story using the pictures and then added the correct prices to each animal. They worked brilliantly with their partners and supported and praised one another. Fabulous work!
This week in class, we are looking at the story book, ‘Walking through the Jungle.’ The children are making lots of different jungle animals using cutting skills, collage, choosing different coloured paints and even weaving and threading. We are creating crocodiles, snakes, monkeys, elephants, tigers and lions.
