This term we looked at the books Detective Dog, The Blue Balloon and Flying High. We also looked at the book 'Journey' which only had pictures in. The children have also been looking at clips from the film Up.
During the Maths sessions the children have been ordering and sequencing familiar events, learning about the months of the year and the days of the week, estimating and counting, doubling and working out the number that is one more or one less than a given number.
Understanding of the World
This term the children have been learning that forces make things move and that forces can speed things up and slow things down. The children also enjoyed exploring magnets.
The children also learnt about the history of flying. They used wooden pegs to make aeroplanes.
In the indoor sessions the children have been using their bodies to make different shapes. During the outdoor Physical Development sessions the children continued to practise their ball skills.
