Our Story of the week was My Green Day. We talked about things that we could do on a daily basis to help to the planet such as hanging our clothes on the washing line rather than using the tumble dryer, reducing the amount of time we spend in the shower & putting things like our eggshells & food waste in the compost bin for it to turn into soil for growing vegetables. We also had a visit from Wessex Water & learnt about how water is cleaned and the things that we shouldn't put down the toilet.
Some of our maths activities included using green paint to print the correct number of fingerprints on the caterpillars body to match the numbers, matching the numbers on the coloured circles to those on the caterpillars body from 0-5, flower pots with number flowers 0-10 with beans and tweezers & counting out the correct number of beans & put them in the corresponding numbered pots. Following a number line the children were able to find the magnetic numbers, put them in order and then tried to write the numbers underneath.
We spoke about foods that are healthy and unhealthy and the children enjoyed matching the correct food and drink cards.
During our Outdoor Learning session on Thursday, the children were very excited to make smores with Mrs Thompson. The children toasted their marshmallows on the fire with support and then put them in between two biscuits, they were very tasty! The children also collected natural materials from the wildlife garden & made crowns.
