This week we have enjoyed an Easter egg hunt following the clues, creative activities making chickens, decorating Easter baskets. making chocolate Easter nests and learning about melting materials. We have been ordering numbers on eggs and practising our skills are counting to 20 and comparing numbers.
The Pandas have really enjoyed learning about dinosaurs this week. The children were really knowledgeable about dinosaurs and could name lots of them and recall facts about them. We have watched Andy's Dinosaur Adventures to find out about some of the different dinosaurs and we have created our own coffee ground dough fossils using the impressions of small model dinosaur skeletons.
This week was also Science week and our fossil investigation was part of our class Science activity for the week.
Over the past 2 weeks we have been finding about some different environments. First we found out about Polar regions using stories as a stimulus and learning facts about Emperor Penguins and also Polar Bears. We enjoyed creative activities making Arctic collage scenes by mixing paint and paper and using 2d shapes to make penguins.
When learning about under the Sea we shared the story Commotion in the Ocean and painted colourful sea creatures from the story and made hanging jellyfish. Children found out about their favourite Sea Creatures and shared their facts on Seesaw either by recording themselves or writing sentences about their creature. This week has also been world book day. Our chosen author was Julia Donaldson so we have enjoyed lots of stories from our author that have been about sea creatures, such as Tiddler, A snail and a Whale and Sharing a Shell. These stories are rhyming stories and have helped the Pandas learn about rhyming pairs of words and recognising rhyme in a story.
