We have had another wonderful week in Foundation!
In Phonics, we have practised the sounds g, o, c and k.
In Literacy, we have been reading 'Mrs Armitage on wheels'. We have enjoyed listening to all the strange items Mrs Armitage has added to her bike! We have chosen props to retell the story to others and created our very own story maps.
We thought about what we would put on our bike.
Some of the amazing suggestions Foundation came up with included:
In Maths, we have been exploring 2D shapes.
We have learnt the names and properties of the circle, square, triangle, rectangle, oval, semi-circle and star.
To challenge ourselves further, we began to explore pentagons, hexagons and octagons. We slid our fingers along the sides to count them. We compared shapes and thought about their similarities and differences.
We've made shapes with play-doh, created rocket by tracing shapes, played snap, buried shapes in sand, gone to look for shapes in the environment and created lunch boxes for our picky shape monsters (did you know they'll only eat shapes with a certain amount of sides?)
In Topic, we have explored different types of boats. We used construction materials to build boats to sit in. We used craft materials to build boats to race. We thought carefully about what we needed for a boat and our harbour is looking pretty impressive.
Keep up all the hard work Foundation!
