In forest school we made bird feeders. The children scooped out the flesh of an orange, carefully pushed two skewers in, tied string around them and filled the orange with bird seeds. 

Show and tell: Our Favourite toys!

My Thinking 

 

The children this week have been working hard on developing either their  understanding of numbers, patterns, sequences, cause and effect or operating different toys/equipment. 

 

The photos in the slide show below show some of the children working hard to make collections that are the same as another, using objects, pictures and numerals. Later on in the week they went on to explore sequences and focused on first and last. The children positioned themselves and objects in a line following the instructions of first, next and last and were also able to identify who/what was first or last in the sequence. 

Exploring how to operate different toys!

My Thinking 

For our My Thinking work this week we are exploring length and weight. Today we read the story 'Ants Rule. The long and short of it'. After, we ordered different bugs buy length and stated which one was the shortest and which one was longest from a choice of three. We then went outside for forest school and ordered different natural materials by length. 

Cause and effect games using switches and a touch game

Geography Field trip to ASDA

 

Our topic this term in geography is 'Our Local Area'. In class we have been looking at maps of Hereford and labelling them with key symbols. Last week we went of a field trip to ASDA. The children had a list of things to spot on their walk. We spotted houses, cars, street lamps, traffic lights and a bridge. In class this week the children drew the route they walked on a map and labelled the map with the key places we passed on our journey. 

Police visit! 

What an amazing way to start our 'Real Heroes' topic! Two police officers visited us at the end of the day today. The children got to go in the police car and try on the police coats! 

SUPERTATO! Celebrating books and promoting reading!

Science 

 

In science this term we are learning about plants and what they need to grow. Some of us engaged in a plant and soil sensory experience and others began our class investigation.

 

For our investigation we planted beans in pots and decided we would give one no water, one no sunlight, one no soil, one no heat and one had everything. We will log the beans progress weekly in our bean diary over the term. I wonder which one will grow the most?

Today we extended our activity by making our own paintbrushes! We found a stick and tied some leaves or grass to the stick using an elastic band. Then we used our paintbrushes to paint with the mud paint again.
