This term we have been exploring the question, ‘What makes me a toy expert?’ We visited the Beaney museum in Canterbury where we played with Victorian toys and made our own marble. We have also designed and made our own board games and wooden toys, which was lots of fun! In science, we have been learning about materials and have identified the materials which our toys are made from. We have been super scientists and tested a range of materials to see which are the most absorbent and the most waterproof. During Forest School, we have been looking for signs of autumn and made leaf kites.
In Geography we have been learning about the UK. We have made many different maps of the UK using chalk and playdough. We have labelled the countries, capital cities and surrounding seas.
In ICT we have been learning how to use Sketchpad. This has been a very exciting part of the week and we have created many pictures using different brushes, stamps and shapes.
In Music we have been learning about pulse and rhythm. We have listened to a range of songs and copied the pulse and rhythm by clapping and playing instruments.
We have been very busy in maths and enjoy taking part in lots of activities each day. We have used a variety of resources to help us understand place value to 10 and addition within 10.
