|Sorting 2-D shapes|
|Painting a symmetrical butterfly|
This week in Numeracy our focus was 2-D shape. Through a range of games and activities, we continued naming and describing the 4 basic shapes (triangle, rectangle, circle and square). We also learned the new shape 'oval'. We also looked at symmetry by decorating one side of a butterfly template with paint, then folding it in half to make a symmetrical painting.
|Designing our 'good' dinosaur profiles|
Finding out information about dinosaurs and playing dinosaur games on www.childrensmuseum.org/themuseum/dinosphere/index.htm
|Collaging a dinosaur|
In Topic this week, we made dinosaur music using a range of instruments. We learned which instruments we could play to represent different sounds (e.g. flapping of wings, crunching leaves, stamping, roaring, running). We also looked at pictures of fossils after reading a story earlier in the week about a little boy who found a fossil of a dinosaur footprint. Miss Joanne told us about fossils and how these have helped us find out about dinosaurs today.
