We are really enjoying our Alice in Wonderland topic. Here are some photos of our topic work this week:
Wehad fun taking part in a game of wonderland-themed croquet! It was really tricky!
We had some sensory fun this week as we made caterpillar slime and play dough using some fun recipes!
Alysse very much enjoyed showing off our caterpillars to the Snowdrops class who are reading the story ‘The Very Hungary Caterpillar’. Alysse was a confident individual as she was very careful when handling the caterpillars and confidently told the young people about the caterpillars and their life cycle.
In cookery, we made cupcakes and decided to make them into a Hungry Caterpillar!
We have enjoyed participating in ‘Maths Week Scotland’ this week. We have all been successful learners during all of our number and shape activities. Here are some of our favourite photos of the week:
We played number games via ICT We explored position and movement using the BeeBots
Emma was learning about quarters using a PowerPoint on the laptop.
We built lego structures using numbered instructions.
We created a parabolic design using numbers and coloured lines!
We also had a maths quiz at the end of the week where we put all of our knowledge and learning of the week to the test!
We took part in a ‘Move and Groove’ yoga session where we created shapes with our bodies and then made shape monsters out of 2D shapes!
Finally, we used numbers to word codes and then created our own number codes for a friend to crack!
Our caterpillars have turned into a chrysalis and are now taking time to harden. Once they are fully formed and hard, they will be ready to be transferred into their new habitat. It was really exciting watching them wriggle around and change shape!
This week has been very exciting for the beech class – we have been learning all about the life cycle of a butterfly because we have five tiny little caterpillars in clas that we have to look after until they become butterflies!
Here is Alysse who has been a very responsible citizen in helping to look after the caterpillars so far!
We have also continued to explore the themes of Alice in Wonderland this week. We made ‘talking’ flowers from the story…
And discussed the difference between good and bad manners.
In cookery, we made our very own truffle caterpillars! Look at how cute they are!
