Maths

In maths this week we have started learning about 3D shapes. We named different 3D shapes and described their properties (edges, faces and vertices). The children loved sorting 2D and 2D shapes and even picked out everyday objects which were the same shape as some of our 3D shapes.

Topic

This week in topic the children made some tissue collages of Martin Luther King. We thought about the different colours we wanted to use and what these represented. The children loved tearing the paper and getting sticky with the glue.

Christmas Bits

The children have been doing lots of fun arts and crafts activities this week. First, we made salt dough. The children learnt some instructions for making salt dough in English this week and used these to help them make their own salt dough ornaments ornaments. When they were dried, we then painted the ornaments and topped them off with lots of glitter to make them extra Christmasy!

 

We also made Christmas cards this week. We created our very own Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer cards and there is an extra special surprise inside which the children loved doing! Here’s a sneak preview of the surprise!!

 

Finally, on Thursday, after finishing all of our arty things off, we had a party and 2 special visitors. First, we got to meet Santa Clause and all got a special present from him. Then we got to see a magician who performed some fantastic tricks with the help of the children and the magic words!
