We have been experimenting a lot these two weeks seeing where it is easier or harder to pull & push a pram. We have also been looking at whether all paper rips as a mini experiment. We also sorted soft & hard objects.
We have been enjoying reading our new story 'Animal Boogie'. We have been finding words which rhyme & sequencing the events within the story
We have been creating patterns using familiar objects. We have also been sorting 3D objects & seeing which 3D shapes roll.
In topic we have been trying lots of different foods from Italy & the United Kingdom.
Hello and a warm welcome back to school for the spring term. We have had a new child start in our class this half term.
In English we will be focusing on a book called 'Animal Boogie' which the children have enjoyed learning about during our first week back. The children will be continuing to develop their literacy skills including reading, writing, speaking & listening.
In Topic our subject is come dine with me & there will be a different genre each week. The first weeks genre is British foods and so far the children have enjoyed a taster session. We are planning a few trips around the different genres including McDonald's & pizza hut.

This half term we have been learning all about 2D and 3D shapes. We have been sorting 2D and 3D shapes and have been looking at the properties of common 2D shapes. The children have particularly enjoyed using the interactive whiteboard games to learn all about different shapes.
Our book this term is called Peace at Last by Jill Murphy and the children have enjoyed the repetitive phrases within this book. We have been singing the Peace at Last song and have read the book many times. The children have enjoyed making bear masks using different coloured fabric and making airplanes using coloured lolly sticks and wooden pegs.
This half term, the focus was on making different twists and the children have so far enjoyed tasting jam, cheese, chocolate and apple + raisin twists. They have taken part in mixing, rolling, and spreading/sprinkling the filling on top ready to be rolled into a twist and baked.
