The morning class have been exploring different patterns. They engaged well in a finger painting activity, making one and two colour patterns. They also enjoyed the opportunity to use the interactive whiteboard, playing different games based around matching colours and shapes and making patterns. Towards the end of the week the children showed a great interest in zoo animals so we read the story ‘Dear Zoo’ then the children made animal pens with duplo and drew their own animal pictures.
The afternoon Class have shown an interest in different types of weather this week following the small amount of snow last week. They have been mark making in water and all had a turn to use the interactive whiteboard to contribute to a tally chart based around our favourite type of weather. A lot of the children have also been showing interest in making their own stories so towards the end of the week we made our own story as a class, about a man who went to the shop and the park.
