Our learning for this week

This week the children have enjoyed listening to the story “What makes a rainbow?“. They have talked about how a rainbow is made and what their favourite colour is. The children made their own rainbows out of paper, by drawing and by painting.
Here are some photos to show our learning:

The children have also really enjoyed constructing with a variety of resources. They used their imaginations and worked collaboratively to create robots, marble runs and lighthouses.

Here are some of their creations:

The children were fascinated by the skittles science experiment which we shared with them. They discussed what they thought would happen when we added the water and then what happened after and why.
Here are some photos of the rainbow it created:

We have also started learning phase 2 in phonics. The sounds we have learnt so far are s, a, t and p. Encourage your child to do a sound bunt around the home looking for objects that start with the sounds they now know.

In maths we have focused on the number 8 and 9 making the amount in different ways and recognising the numeral.
Here are some photos from this learning:

Please remember to check Tapestry for updates on your child’s learning throughout the week and ways in which you can support at home.

We hope you have a lovely weekend.
