All about shapes!

Dear all,

We have been focusing on shapes this term, this week our shape was STARS. The children enjoyed lots of star themed activities, which was also incorporated in our Chinese New Year celebrations! The children made red flags to represent China and added yellow stars, comparing size and shape and copying a pattern.

Some of the older children explored Chinese numbers and made marks using their fingers in paint by studying pictures of Chinese numerals and copying them. The younger children also had a go at exploring mark making using their fingers and hands in paint!

We say thank you to Ewan who has been with us this week to gain work experience. He said that he thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would love to come back! This is all credit to the children who have made Ewan feel very welcome during his time with us – well done!

For the week ahead we will be having our PE session on Monday at the school hall. Our shape of the week is now TRIANGLES which is a change to the order set in the newsletter. Some of our triangle activities include making bunting to display, paper boat making and blowing through straws to move the boats on water. All this and more as we learn through play!
