This week, we have been learning...

Rainbow Challenges

This week, we introduced the Acorns to ‘Rainbow Challenges’. There is 5 coloured activities set up in our classroom environment which the Acorns have to complete by the end of the week. They collect a coloured stick every time they complete the activity and put them in their special rainbow pot. 

The Acorns were really excited about this and we were really proud of how motivated they have been to complete the challenges independently. 

EAD- Symmetrical Butterflies

This week we have been learning about the life cycle of a butterfly and as part of this we have been looking at different types of butterflies. We learnt that butterfly wings are symmetrical and looked closely at details and patterns on pictures of butterflies. We made our own symmetrical butterflies by squeezing paint onto one side of a butterfly template and then folding it to print on the other side. We practised some finger gym and discovered some different colour mixing too! 

Maths- Teen Numbers

We have been looking at making different representations of teen numbers. We made a number track using numerals 1-20 and then worked together to match numicon shapes to each number.
