We have been working hard to develop our knowledge of shape. We have been learning shape names and discussing their properties. The children have enjoyed making and exploring shapes in lots of different ways!
Here are some pictures of us spending time in our Train Station role play area! The children have loved taking on the different roles of passenger, conductor, ticket officer and train driver.
We have been learning all about Bonfire Night - why we celebrate it, and how we can be safe around fireworks. We have also been creating some beautiful artwork based on fireworks. Here are some of the images created by the children using a variety of different resources.
The children have been working so hard this term on developing their number sense. We have been doing lots of counting, ordering and representing numbers in lots of different ways. Here are some of the things we have been up to:
Palm Oil Project
The children have really enjoyed being involved with Chester Zoo's "Palm Oil Project" this half term. We have had weekly visits from Marissa, who has been teaching us all about the rainforest and the animals that live there. Then we learned about the different products that contain palm oil, and about how the rainforest is being cut down in order to plant palm trees. The children were concerned to learn about all the animals who are losing their homes. Marissa then told us about all the ways that we can help these animals - most importantly by checking the label on our food to make sure any palm oil is "sustainable".
