Update on Learning

Over the past few weeks, we have been very busy!

During our ‘explore the world’ activity, the children we have been making leaf kebabs, foraging for natural materials and decorating a superhero with their findings. They really enjoyed counting and comparing the natural objects that they found.

They have also been learning how to use balancing scales. The children have been weighing their snacks and telling us which objects are the heaviest and the lightest.

The children have also been writing their names on jelly cups and have been decorated them with their favourite craft resources. We talked about capacity and temperature as the children then made their own jelly. They cannot wait to eat it on the Superhero day on Friday.

Thank you so much for your wonderful superhero vehicles! We are overwhelmed with how much effort the children have put into making them.  It has been fantastic seeing how excited the children have been to show and share their creations. They will be proudly displaying within the classroom.
