We followed instructions to make 2d shapes with our geo-boards. We enjoyed finding out about the properties of shapes and talking about the shapes that we made.
As part of our shape, space and measures unit of work, we had to give instructions using positional language. We blindfolded our partners and had to give them specific instructions of where to move. It was quite challenging making sure that the instructions were clear and specific enough!
The Year 1 children used a grid to show the position of the Compare Bears.
The Squirrel's enjoyed a school sleepover. We went on a nocturnal animal hunt with our torches - look at the animals that we found!
When we came in from the cold, we completed lots of nocturnal animal craft activities, got into our pyjamas and watched The Wind in the Willows and then we had hot chocolate with marshmallows and a bedtime story.
In the Squirrel class, we have been learning about materials. We had to describe the different materials to our partner. We weren't allowed to look at the materials until after we had described them so that we used different senses.
