Science and Technology Week
We had a super time actively learning about scientific concepts such as magnetism, light and dark, materials, living things in the Science Zone and thoroughly enjoyed having the freedom to build with a great variety of construction materials in the Construction Zone. Programming the Beebots and exploring different applications on the Learnpads in the Technology Zone was also a fantastic experience. The Design and Make challenge we did at home with our parents was amazing!
Learning through Traditional Tales
We loved our focus stories of Jack and the Beanstalk, The Three little Pigs and The Three Billy Goats Gruff in the first half of the Spring Term. We did lots of activitites that linked in to the stories and helped us to learn different things. We measured and thought of different words to describe the 'Giants Feet'. We sorted beans and even painted our own 'Magic Beans'. We investigated the materials the Little Pigs used to build their houses and made playdough 'Trolls' for the Story of Billy Goats Gruff. We acted out the stories, did some lovely artwork to go with them and developed our story telling and writing skills too.
