We are so excited to show you our fantastic learning this term - photos of our work and activities coming soon!
As part of our Hinduism project, we learnt about the story of Ganesh. Once we listened to the story, we coloured his picture in bright colours because we noticed all his paintings were very bright. We used our collage materials to represent his colourful paintings.
We are so proud of our finished patch work quilt for Goldilocks and the Bears.
We didn't want Goldilocks to be chilly if she decided to visit again so we decided we would make her a patchwork quilt using our maths skills. We talked about what patterns she might like and which materials we could use - paint, tissue paper, felt, crayons and printing blocks. We had lots of fun making our squares and we will put them all together to make a big blanket!
We applied our numeracy across the curriculum by measuring Daddy, Mummy and Baby Bear's chairs using the non-standard measurement of unifix cubes. We talked about how many we thought we would need (using our estimating skills), how to measure something properly and counted our unifix cubes carefully. We were impressed to find that Daddy Bear's chair was 55 cubes tall and Baby Bear's was only 3 cubes!
On Monday we were very lucky to have a visit from PC Rhys and his colleague. They taught us about safe and unsafe places to play with a matching game and a story and then they even let us try on their police gear! They also gave us four new police hats to help our investigations into Goldilocks! Diolch yn fawr heddlu!
We are all ready to practice reading and writing our tricky words using 'Paint' on the ipads - this support our digital skills too! On the learning table we will be writing our thoughts on the recent suspicious events in our classroom using key words from the Goldilocks story.
