Our visit to the church! Today we practiced walking safely to the church. We looked at the windows and the carvings and identified lots of shapes we could see! Inside we practiced singing for harvest festival and learnt about how to sit in church. On the way home we looked for lots of different numbers. A very busy morning!!

WOW! What an exciting morning! We were very excited to find new hammers and pumpkins today. There was a lot of talk about how we would stay safe and the children had lots of great ideas about how to handle the tools carefully. We then used our hammers to help us to decorate our pumpkins with golf tees!! we had lots of sharing, cooperating, problem solving, talking and counting!! We are also developing our finger strength so we will be ready for writing.

Forwards, backwards and left and right!  These are the directions we have been thinking about to help our friends through the maze on the laptop.  Now we can learn how to use these directions for programming!  Look Out for the Bee Bot robot in the next few weeks!

Designing, Planning Making!

Is it an Aeroplane?  Is it a Space pod?  It depends where your imagination takes you.  We can travel to India in the plane or to watch fireworks from space but it has taken lots of teamwork and communication to build it.  We have used our own cardboard saw and connectors to link the cardboard together and we are busy planning the control buttons and dials needed to fly off on our adventures.  Come back soon and see our finished vehicle.

Numbers 1, 2, 3!

Numbers 1, 2, 3! 1 Ordering numbers.
Numbers 1, 2, 3! 2 Writing numbers.
Numbers 1, 2, 3! 3 Writing numbers.
Numbers 1, 2, 3! 4 How many altogether?
We have been busy counting lots of different things and thinking about how we record numbers.  If you would like to help, you could help your child to write the numbers 1  -  10.  It sometimes needs lots of practice and determination as it can be tricky!

AIRPORT DAY

Comparing different suitcases required lots of muscles.  We packed a suitcase with light things and another with heavy things.  It was harder to carry the heavy suitcase.
