Another week learning about India has flown by again! In Literacy we have been looking at the features of non-fiction books and the children chose a photograph then wrote their own heading and caption for it.
In maths the children have been developing their spatial reasoning, looking at shapes and models, matching them by “rotating” shapes and most importantly describing their position within the model. Although many of them were confident to replicate a model, they did find it a little more tricky to actually describe to someone else how to do it so we will revisit this again later in the term.
One of the children has been making bird feeders at home and this has been shared with the rest of the class via Tapestry. We thought this would be a lovely thing to do for our outdoor area and Forest School so I have asked if all the children could bring in at least one clean empty plastic pot (empty yoghurt or pudding pot) so we can make them towards the end of next week.
Over the next week or so, we are also going to be trying our hands at some Indian cooking making chapatis and special Indian sweets. We have also had a discussion and vote on what they would like the role play area to be next and the majority have voted for a vets due to their interest in animals.
Well done to this week’s Golden Certificate Winner Felicity! Keep up the good work. 😊
Have a lovely weekend!
