We have really enjoyed learning about 3D shapes this term. We thought about what 3D shapes we could see in every day objects, what 2D shapes appear when you print with 3D shapes, how to build 3D shapes and even sorting 3D shapes into a Venn diagram. It's been fun!
Transport is so exciting! One thing that has really caught our attention is rockets. So our roleplay area has changed into a spaceship for us to learn and play inside of. There is a control panel to control the ship and a steering wheel to drive it through space.
One of our favourite parts of the week is Show and Tell on Friday. We love seeing what our friends bring from home and asking them questions about it.
One new thing we are doing this term is visiting the new library every week. We love choosing books to read independently and turning the pages carefully. Shhh we are quiet in the library!
We are looking at food in a wide context this term. We have planted some seeds and will be watching them grow as well as learning how to nurture them. We chose a good space for the beds to grow our seeds and will be caring for this area as part of our topic. Watch this space for more pictures later this term!
We enjoyed using our imaginations making potions. We used what we learnt in maths and art and design to create potions that turn you into different creatures. There were a lot of children that turned into dragons!
We had so much fun during book week. Our highlights were dressing up as our favourite book characters, going on a Gruffalo hunt, making Gruffalo crumble and playing musical reading chairs.
This is how we like to learn in Songani class!
We have been reading the story of The Hungry Caterpillar. We are super stars at retelling the story now! It was really cool to explore this story through different mediums like sensory play; look what is in the caterpillar's tummy!
We enjoyed learning about sounds in our environment and nature noises. More recently we have learnt the sounds of the letters m, a, d, s, t, i and n. It is really fun doing a phonics sound hunt!
We have been enjoying our topic this term on nature. We have been building and making using natural objects. We made butterflies, snakes and also a house using blocks. It was funny when we added the toilet and sink! Sometimes we pretend to go camping and build a fire. We cook food like rice and sleep in our tents.
