This week love is in the air as we have been talking about the things we love and things that are special to us. We have discussed how we can be kind and what an act of kindness might be.
We have made lots of heart shaped art work and counted and sorted hearts. We loved making our "love bugs" We definitely know what a heart shape is now. ❤️💙💜💛
We we have been exploring floating and sinking. We put different objects into a tube, filled it with water and guessed if the object would float or sink.
this week we have been learning about Chinese New Year. We have listened to the story of The Great Race, dressed in traditional Chinese costumes, played with rice, explored Chinese dragons and the way they move and tasted Chinese food.
Most of the children really enjoyed the noodles and rice and even asked for more.
We we have made the most of the snow today by playing in it and painting on it. The children described the snow as "cold, frozen ( because it's been outside), soft, white, crunchy, it feels like Winter" . When it was painted they used wonderful language to describe it " it's colourful, its like a rainbow, I've painted it perfectly, its like unicorn poop!!"
We are reading the story of The Three Little Pigs. We have been taking part in lots of construction activities and testing how strong straw, sticks and bricks are. We have been retelling the story with our puppets and story tray.
We will be matching by shape and size and learning counting songs.
Welcome back to Term 3.
