This week we explored the wonderful story of Pumpkin Soup.
In Literacy we explored the characters from the story and how they felt. We made wonderful maps to predict where Duck had been before he went home. They were incredible. We also discussed instructions and followed instructions to make yummy Pumpkin Soup.
In Maths we explored numbers to three. We went on number walks and found lots of numbers around the school environment. We made sets of numbers and explored what numbers make these numbers.
In Continuous Provision we scooped out pumpkins and explored what was inside and matched pumpkin numbers and letters. We printed and painted with different vegetables and found out where vegetables are grown.
This week we have been reading the wonderful story of 'Tiddler.'
In Literacy we compared this story to the Rainbow fish and discussed similarities and differences. We explored the ocean and thought of adjectives to describe this and wrote a sentence in our Literacy books. The teachers were so impressed.
In Maths we have been exploring Measures and Patterns. We have compared weight, capacity and carried on and created our patterns. We were amazing.
In Continuous Provision we have been making play dough sea creatures, practising our cutting skills by cutting out sea animals to make a display and making an under the sea habitat in our construction area.
We spent two lovely weeks exploring this wonderful story. We discussed feelings and emotions further.
In Literacy we learned lots of new vocabulary and looked at feelings from others' perspectives. We talked about sharing and how it makes us feel when we share things that are of importance to us.
In Maths we explored sorting to a type, set and group. We did brilliantly.
In Continuous Provision we made wonderful under the sea collages, caught number fish and matched and sorted them to a number along with lots more exciting activities.
The Colour Monster
We have been reading the wonderful story of The Colour Monster. We have been exploring our feelings and emotions and talked about different strategies we can use when we are feeling angry or sad. We have been introduced to the zones of Regulations too.
In Maths we have been exploring matching. We matched objects that were the same and sorted objects discussing about how we grouped them. We did brilliantly!
In Continuous Provision we have been using our fine motor skills to sort objects into different colours using tweezers along with threading around colour monsters.
We have painted and collaged our own colour monsters and talked about how we can mix colours to make a new colour. We also used play dough to make our own colour monsters too.
