We had a great time taking part in a STEM workshop with Bricks 4 Kidz today as part of Maths Week. We used Lego technic kits to build airplanes. Have a look at some of our fabulous creations.
We have been learning about games from the past and comparing them to games that we like to play now. Some of them have stayed the same. Today we tried out an old game called Four Corners. It was lots of fun.
National Tree Day took place on Thursday the 3rd of October. We learned about the parts of a tree, learned to identify lots of different types of trees and went on a tree hunt around the school yard. We also collected fallen leaves, twigs and seeds and used them to make leaf people in Art. We are doing an experiment with celery, water and food colouring to investigate how trees absorb water. We know how important trees are for the environment.
Have a look at some of our recent fabulous construction creations from morning play.
We finished off our work on 2-D shapes today. We worked together to make different shapes using tracing and lollipop sticks. We also made some imaginative shape pictures in Art.
We have been learning about the human body and the senses. Today we had fun doing some experiments to practise using our senses. We played listening and feely bag games, tasted different fruits, guessed some smells and tried out a pencil trick.
We celebrated Dot Day in Art recently. We listened to the story ‘The Dot’ by Peter H. Reynolds.
We used the story as inspiration to create our own dot images.
