This week the children have enjoyed exploring our new light panel. We have used the glass blocks and beads to create patterns. Then we thought about what was making the light box work was it a lightbulb? The children investigated and decided it was similar to Christmas lights as it has a wire going into the box.
This week we have had fun looking at the story Elmer. The children explored mixing the primary colours to paint their own elephant for our Elmers parade. We also spent time looking at patterns. The children impressed me with their knowledge of repeating patterns. Later in the week we made our own story map of Elmer and the children wrote the key parts of the story. Jospeh amazed us with his inpedendnt writing. Well done everyone!
This week we have been exploring patterns in maths. We looked at different ways to show patterns and found you could use shapes or colours. Some children then explored this further in the maths area and created their own patterns.
