# 2D Shapes

Today we went on a shape walk to see what shapes there were in the playground. We found shapes everywhere! We were able to tell our teacher what the shapes were called and what was special about them.

Back in class we sorted toys into squares, triangles and circles.

# Our new sound ‘g’

One of our new sounds this week is ‘g’. We listened to the story of Mr Greedy, came up with some great ‘g’ wordsÂ and then drew our own pictures and cut them out. Cutting is quite tricky but we tried really hard.

# Models that we push and pull

This term we have been learning about how toys move and the forces we need to use to make them go. In our play we have been making models and explaining to the teacher how they move.

“I pull this bit and it launches off. Then they can both fly. It’s super hero name is Racing Man.”

“It curls up when it is not an emergency. It can even move when it is lying down. I need to push it and pull it.”

“It rolls up. I am using my hands to push it and roll it into a circle. “

# Learning through our activities this week

During our morning activities this week we have been using the smart board to practice our counting……..

thinking of things that we can draw that start with our new sounds…….

and constructing models.

# Dominoes

This week we have been using dominoes to help us practice our 1 to 1 counting and recognising numbers.

# Exploring paint

This week we have been exploring paint during our activity time. We have painted pictures of our choice. Someone even found out that if you mix red and yellow paint together your get orange.

We have also been painting bears as a class.

# Computer Fun

We have been learning to control the mouse to move things about on the computer screen. We had great fun hiding teddy for our friends to find.

# Story Pictures

We have been using our black pen to draw different faces. Our faces tell the story of how we are feeling. Today we were thinking about feeling scared. After we had drawn our picture we shared our story with our teacher.

# Building Ramps

We have been working together to build different ramps. We explored different ramps to see which one was the best. Sometimes the cars fell off so we had to find different ways of keeping them on. We thought about ramps which made the cars go faster and ramps that made the cars go further.

# Loose Parts Play

We have been using lots of different bits and bobs to make different models and pictures.

We made a bridge to our castle out of corks.
