In English, we discussed the story ‘Dandylion’ and then we sequenced it using images from the book. After that we retold the story to our partners.
In art we have been learning about the primary colours. We enjoyed creating a collage in the style on Mondrian – using red, blue, yellow and black rectangles and squares.
We have been enjoying developing our fine motor skills through activities such as threading beads, using tweezers for sorting cubes into egg boxes and also making Hama Bead patterns.
In maths we have enjoyed counting forwards and backwards within 10. We made number tracks to help us find one more and one less.
We practised our numbers to 10 and then practised one to one correspondence by using counters. We tried to organise the counters into arrays so that it was easy to count them.
We have been practising ordering our numbers 0-10. Then we matched them to Numicon shapes and wrote numerals on whiteboards.
In our science work we learned about temperature. We learned that a thermometer tells us how hot or cold it is. We then used ‘freeze frames’ to show our understanding of our new weather vocabulary: ‘freezing’, ‘cold’, ‘cool’, ‘warm’, ‘hot’ and ‘scorching’.
We enjoyed sorting objects according to their properties. We sorted by colour and also by deciding if objects had straight or curved sides. We also sorted squares sides and circles.
In our seasons work, we learned that the earth rotates around the sun. The earth is on a tilt and this gives us our seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter. When the earth tilts away from the sun it is winter and it feels cold. When the earth tilts towards the sun it is summer and it feels hot. We practiced being the sun and the earth with mini globes and torches.
In maths we have been learning about the greater than, less than and equals symbols. We enjoyed using a variety of maths resources to help us.
In science we have been learning about the seasons. We recorded the weather in September and then made a pictogram to show this. We will make another chart for October and then compare how the weather changes.
