We have been looking at our topic this half term of materials - we have explored different textures and types of materials. We have been able to sort them into different categories, explored how they feel and look. We have been able to find man-made and natural materials in and around the school grounds. Ladybirds have done some experimenting with materials including which ones are waterproof and which float or sink. In maths we have explored 2D shapes and their properties. Ladybirds have also been counting to 10 or 20 and have been adding two digits together. We have been developing our fine motor skills in phonics and practising writing our names! Each of us have loved exploring textures in sensory/messy play.
We have had a really fun half term. We've shared stories, played with shapes and patterns in maths, role played shops and much more! We have enjoyed exploring the UK with Barnaby Bear, joining in some Christmas crafts and practicing and performing our parts in The Wriggly Nativity. One day we even got to play out in the snow!
