Today we have had lots of fun exploring the shapes we could find hidden in the water tray. We found lots of 2D shapes including a circle, square and a triangle! Some of us even found a hexagon.
I challange you to look out for 2D shapes on your journey to and from school!
Our Talk 4 Writing story this half term is The Gruffalo.
Can you practise retelling the story to your family and friends? Maybe even try designing your own story map for The Gruffalo.
Yesterday we visited the farm, we learnt all about chickens, pigs, sheep and cows! We fed the chickens and collected the eggs that they had laid. We realised that all eggs are different on the outside but inside they are all the same.
We also fed the sheep -as they ate their food out of our hand, their tongues tickled our hands. They had three week old lambs too, we listened to them calling out for their Mummy!
Next we visited the pigs, they were called Pinky and Percy. One had a straight tail and one had a curly tail.
After that, we visited the cows. The farm had 200 cows! We walked all the way to the end of the cow shed – some of us thought it was a little bit stinky!
We had a lovely day at the farm and we learnt so many exciting things about the animals – we even pretended to milk the cow!
Thanks for having us Mount Pleasant Farm!!
This week we have been practising ordering our numbers to 20.
Can you practise at home?
This week we have been looking at foods that are healthy for us. We have explored the fruits that Handa takes to Akeyo and we have even made our own healthy pizzas. We have also designed our own fruit bowls full of delicious fruits!
We have been talking about foods that are unhealthy for us too – we know that sweets, chocolate and chips are unhealthy for us but we have decided that it is okay to have them as a treat but it is not good to eat them every day!
We are trying to be really healthy by eating fruit everyday and drinking lots of water.
I challenge you to try a new healthy food – perhaps a guava, or a mango or maybe even a passion fruit!
Today we have been exploring how to make sounds using the instruments. We have been looking at different tribal dances and trying to copy the dances and mimic the music that they dance too.
We really enjoyed exploring all the different sounds that instruments make.
This half term we are learning the story ‘Handa’s Surprise’, we will be learning to tell it off by heart and we will be exploring all the fruit that Handa talks about in her story.
I challenge you to use the story map to retell the story to all your friends and family!
