Week beginning 25th February
The theme this week is 'Trees and flowers
On Tuesday we have ‘Science Challenge Day’. Having had a discussion with the children we have decided to investigate ‘The science of the perfect sandcastle’.
We’ll let you know our ‘findings’!
Some of the other things we will be learning about and exploring over the week are;
- Looking at Klimt’s painting of the Tree of Life and creating our own
collaborative version, first we will explore rolling play dough into different shapes, then using papier mache in a similar to create the branches of the tree. Look out for our finished version in the classroom.
- Going on an alliterative walk around the school grounds, taking photos, using iPads of the objects/ features we have looked at.
- Drawing people in our family on leaves for a family tree. The children will count the pictures/leaves and record a number or marks to represent how many people are in their family.
- Music will be linked to 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. The children will tell the story to music through finger and body movements.
Shared reading will be on Wednesday 26th February
Show and tell this week is; flowers and trees - eg. photo, book, bark rubbing, leaf rubbing/print or leaf/flower/petal from garden etc.
