It has been another fantastic week in Orange class! This week we have been looking at and reading the story ‘Stick Man’ by Julia Donaldson. We used this to help us explore the seasons of the year, specifically Autumn, and the weather changes to show this. Both inside and outside we have been looking at the leaves that have fallen of the trees, we have been using our magnifying glasses to investigate them. We also used them to do some leaf rubbings and printing. If you’re out walking (in the rain) over the weekend and see any objects that could be added to Autumn we would love for you to bring them in so that we can investigate them.
Whilst reading ‘Stick Man’ we also began to think about our own family trees. We decided to use are hands and arms to make a trunk and branches and then we used broccoli to create some colourful Autumn leaves. Finally we drew the members of our families and stuck them to our trees. They all look amazing!
This week we have been focusing on the number ‘2’. We were thinking abou how 2 is 1 and another 1. Throghout the week we have been collecting lots of things that represent the number 2. We did some of these altogether (numicon, fives frame, number fans) and throughout the week the children have added to our 2 maths display (pomp poms, puzzle pieces and lego). We also watched two episodes of Numberblocks these were episode two and three. These can be found on Cbeebies or Youtube.
