We are making our hand muscles stronger so that it will help us to hold our pencils with comfort and this is getting us ready to write.
As part of our discovery lesson we investigated the inside of a pumpkin. We cut the top off and the children used their sense of smell to tell me what they thought the pumpkin smelt like. They then put their hands inside the pumpkin and described how it felt. They enjoyed scooping out the seeds from inside.
We have been learning about Diwali, the celebration of light. The children described how the clay felt and followed instructions to make diva lamps. They used different motions such as rolling, pinching and pressing on the clay. Once the clay had dried they noticed it had gone to a light grey colour. After they painted and used glitter to decorate their diva lamps. We have also been learning about the story of Rama and Sita.
We have been learning about the importance of Remembrance Day. We have thought about why we wear poppies, we learnt about the soldiers that fought in the war and that poppies grew when the war ended. This November it will be 100 years since the war had finished.
In maths we have been partitioning numbers. We have learnt how to split a number into two parts and know we still have the same amount. We had a tray with a line down the middle, we shook the tray until the cubes were on either side and wrote the number sentence.
