Numeracy and Literacy Obstacle Course

We enjoyed an indoor obstacle course focussing on literacy and numeracy! It was a fun and easy way of practicing our letters sounds and numbers. We also concentrated on positional language, using jump, hop, crawl, through and under.

Houses and Materials

In class we've been exploring materials and objects and trying to utilise found and recycled objects to create houses - we've had lots of discussion about what why and how you would build a house out of a variety of materials, and have gradually been creating art projects to represent our ideas. This week we were lucky enough to have Esther, Ella C's mum, come in for our activity time, to help the kids get a start on their house projects.

The children also painted their own houses, and needed to remember the three basics - roof, windows and walls - have a look and see how your children went with both their writing and their painting.

Term 1 - Week 5 - Potatoes

We planted potatoes, discussed how plants grow, and what the major needs of a plant are.
