This week, we have been learning....

EAD- Flower Art

We have been learning about plants and flowers this week and looked at the different parts of a plant. We challenged the Acorns to create a flower picture. They each chose a flower and then sketched the other half of the flower on one side of the picture. They focused on the shape and details of the flowers and then used water colour paints to match the colours. 

Maths- 3D Shapes

This week we have been learning about 3D shapes. We explored each one and talked about their properties. We sorted them into shapes that can stack and roll and experimented with building using our knowledge of this. We also learnt the 3D shape song- what a tune!! 

Literacy- Capital Letters

This week we have been focusing on capital letters. We played lots of games matching upper and lower case letters. Our favourite game was definitely this one. We matched the keys with the lower case letters to the lock with the capital letter on. It helped us practise some fine motor skills too!
